TTT: Favorite Queer Moments in My Books

We’ve already discussed my favorite couples & queer fantasy MCs, and we’re chatting why I want even more queer fantasy MCs next week, but I’ve also been dropping short stories every week (here’s one for sister witches and sycamore girls!), and I thought it’d be fun to combine the two. All of my books feature […]

#marywrites: High Fantasy

I’ve been having such a love affair with high fantasy lately, which is a weird sentence to write and not even because of the actual content, but because I’m almost always reading high fantasy, so I’d like to say I don’t know what changed, but I do. I haven’t had a TBR for the last […]

TTT: Facts About My Writing

Sometimes I write down ideas for posts, but I don’t actually write down anything except facts about my writing, and then when it comes time to write the actual post, I’m just sitting here blankly, like, what the hell does that even mean? I have a vague sense of what I was intending for this […]

Why I’m No Longer Talking About Writing

I recognize that this title is misleading, especially given more than half of the posts that I put up, but I promise it’s going to make sense by the end of this post. I can take myself right back to high school, handing out spiralbound copies of my book to literally any friend that would […]

TTT: Favorite Women Characters That I’ve Written

And we’re back! Last week, ICYMI, I talked about my favorite men characters that I’ve written, and since I just have too many amazing characters, I figured I’d split them up so we could take a look at twenty of my favorite characters. Do I love my own writing a lot? HECK YES, that’s the […]

TTT: Favorite Men Characters That I’ve Written

I think it’s safe to say that this is going to be my favorite post I’ve ever written. Possibly also the hardest? On one hand, it’s definitely because I love talking about my own characters, and they make me stupid squeal at any given moment. But, on the other, I can’t wait for all of […]

#marywrites Books That Inspired My Books

I think I’ve told the Saintsverse story a million times now–I read the Crows duology over the course of a couple weeks, and when I went to bed one fateful Sunday, it was after finishing Crooked Kingdom. When I woke up, after my usual dreamless sleep, there was a name in my mouth–Landon Ash. I […]

#marywrites: Introspection

Turnabout is fair play, right? Recently, I was reading for my CP, and I was starting to sound like a really annoying broken record that you kind of want to throw out the window. “Introspection!” I kept yelling, “We need more introspection!” The character wasn’t meant to be liked, but I also didn’t care about […]

Current Projects: Fourth Edition

Wow, it has been a minute since I wrote the third edition of this post. Like, I wrote an entire duology that wasn’t even on the list since the last one was posted. I’ve finished some, set aside others, and started work toward new ones. Some of these will look familiar, and I’ll honestly probably […]

#marywrites: Nobody Told Me That!

My mom has forever joked, “Aren’t you the one writing the story?” And sure, yes, I am the one physically putting the words on paper, but that’s about where it ends. And you might think that sounds crazy, but consider this. But I met a lot of things on the way that astonished me. Tom […]
