Mary Fan is a hopeless dreamer, whose mind insists on spinning tales of “what if.” As a music major in college, she told those stories through compositions. Now, she tells them through books—a habit she began as soon as she could pick up a pencil.

Mary lives in New Jersey and has a B.A. from Princeton University. When she’s not scheming to create new worlds, she enjoys kickboxing, opera singing, and blogging about everything having to do with books.

Thanksgiving dinner! Except with a stuffed duck instead of turkey. And two random turkey legs because there must be turkey.

Freya Barrington Hi Mary,

My latest book, Gozo Is the Grass Greener has just been released.

Check it out here on Goodreads;

https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Or visit my blogsite;

www.gozoisthegrassgreener.blogspot.com

Gozo is one of the Maltese islands and currently very popular and topical due to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt making a movie there!

Many thanks Mary -

All the best

Freya
