March 30th Mary E. Martin

We continue with our Authors’ Marketing Expert series by having Mary E. Martin on the show. Mary has written an article for the March issue of Writers in the Sky Newsletter and will be giving us more writing tips in her upcoming articles in future issues.

Mary E. Martin grew up in Toronto where she began practicing law in a small estates firm. In 1999, she became a full time writer and photographer.

If you have read Mary’s first book "Conduct in Question", you have witnessed her art of shedding light of parts of the law that only the "insiders" see. In her second addition to the Osgoode Trilogy, she has taken it one step further. Martin shows how organized deception of the law can quickly evolve into organized crime and who else to expose it than our old friend, Harry Jenkins.

In "Final Paradox", Harry is the championed knight of the wealthy Ms. Norma Dinnick, a widowed old woman who constantly floats between lucidity to insanity. Norma sees and hears people who aren't there and has a bounty of conspiracy theories based on all of the people fighting to steal her estate.
