Trained in telling the legends of her Celtic countries of Scotland and Ireland, Mary came to Canada and began writing her own stories. These tales combine the wit and wisdom of Celtic understanding with the fun and foibles of ordinary people who strive and thrive when taking on tasks heroic to them.

Fascinated by how ordinary people cope with their problems, Mary draws on historical research, tales gleaned on her international travels as well as her experiences gained while working with people at end of life. Recently, she added to her good intentions list a publisher's request to write those end of life stories.

Her stories entertain and inform about the meaning of challenges undertaken, willingly or not, by ordinary people going about their daily business. Fate and destiny play their part in her stories.

Her CD "Celtic Otherworld" won a prestigous Storytelling World Award.

A past president of the national storytellers of Canada and a past local organiser, Mary is committed to a professional standard of storytelling.

She performs her wide range of stories at a variety of venues: events, conferences and festivals, be they provincial, national and international. She is known entertainer whose lilting voice and engaging stories ensure you: Listen! Laugh! Enjoy!
