June 2015


Mary Boyle grew up in the open desert of southern Arizona, exploring the outdoors when she didn't have her nose deep in a book. Today, she explores ideas and the worlds of craft beer and cocktails. As a writer, editor and syntax magician, Mary keeps the prose lean and mean on her projects. Other than keeping her co-author out of too much mischief, she applies her writing skills to résumés and manuscripts of all types.

Mary is also a jewelry designer and has developed a line of libations jewelry. You can view her work at: MaryBoyleJewelry.ArtFire.com.

“Up until Prohibition, an apple grown in America was far less likely to be eaten than to wind up in a barrel of cider. (“Hard” cider is a twentieth-century term, redundant before then since virtually all cider was hard until modern refrigeration allowed people to keep sweet cider sweet.)”
Michael Pollan, The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World
