Imagine and Dream… two words that best describe the mind of this poet. An avid lover of the written word, Mary has penned many poems of various genres since the age of seven, having first been published by nine.
Mary grew up reading, watching, loving anything horror; Her darkside so to speak.
Classic authors, whose pens have etched greatness in works that not only create shivers down the spine but inspire movement of the soul — Such remarkable writers as Poe, Shakespeare, Browning, Gibran, just to name a few, gave Mary that special element that drives every poet to place their essence upon parchment. This became the ethereal foundation of her poetic form.
Writing as such gave way to countless poems/prose and other works, many of which found publication in anthologies. Today she has not merely found a new voice but added an intrinsic octave to her repertoire; The genre of Horror, both poetic and fiction.
Mary’s poetry has been described as mystical, melodic, flowing with a unique grace that at times has been likened to the old world poets.
Her horror poetry has been deemed as “Poe-esque” by many.
She has most recently been accepted for publication in four horror anthologies, “Bones”, “Satan’s Holiday” and “Welcome To Your Nightmare” and One of her poems will be used as the Intro to the soon to be released, "Temporary Skeletons" Anthology by Chupa Cabra House Publications.
She has two poems in the January issue of "Shadows & Light Magazine," one of which is a photo caption award winner.
In addition to being in print, Mary’s poetry is featured in “The Wicked Library,” (a podcast available on iTunes, Stitcher.com and hipcast.com) Season 3, Episodes 307, 307.1 Bonus and The Christmas Episode "Christmassacre 2."
Currently, Mary has a position as a columnist, “Nighty Nightmare”, for http://www.stayingscared.com/, a Horror website.
In addition, she is a partner/editor for Black Bed Sheet Books and a reviewer for Hellnotes.
Mary is working on a personal website, tupelohoneyhugger.com.
