Mary Wallace lives in Marin County, California. She is an early adopter and has blogged and written on tech innovation, social justice and contemporary issues for an international audience. She has now turned to fiction. An alum of Squaw Valley Community of Writers, she has written three novels and is working on a romantic series through time. She loves raising her three kids and has put the bumper sticker ‘One People, One Planet, One Future’ on each of her cars through the years. She believes that there is more that unites us than that divides us and hopes for a future energized by love instead of fear. Science is discovering that the heart sends more messages to the brain than vice versa. Here’s hoping for a kinder, gentler human race...

PoolWhen I anticipated the empty nest, I half-joked that I was going to spend a couple of weeks at the Grand Wailea on Maui after taking my youngest to college. I’d single mom’d my three kids for a decade. The two oldest were in college, my youngest was doing well in high school.

If You Follow Me by Malena Watrous
"Would I have adored this book so much if I hadn't been an English teacher in Japan myself? I don't know. All I can say is that it hooked me from the first letter, in which Marina's supervisor chides her for not following _gomi_ (garbage) law. Sudd..." Read more of this review »
