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.

I AM THE STORM is the first book of the Psionics series by Tash McAdam, and it really sets things off with a bang! I'd read a previous version of this story, which was originally published as a novella called SLAM, and I remembered it being action-pa ...more

SLAM by Tash McAdam
"Confidence and style shine through this debut. The ideas at the core of the story are powerful and intriguing, painting a picture of a future which is hauntingly familiar in this era of endangered freedoms. SLAM offers up a wonderful taste of what..." Read more of this review »
Mary Fan and 4 other people liked H Lease's review of SLAM:
SLAM by Tash McAdam
"SLAM is a great story! I thoroughly enjoyed this novella, in one long sitting. It was gripping, pacey and utterly convincing: it never lost my interest or sympathy and left me eager to start on the sequel (and sad it isn't available til June). It'..." Read more of this review »

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
