Mary Burkholder is a lucky wife, happy mom and dedicated writer living in sweet and sticky South Mississippi. She grew up in beautiful Path Valley in rural, south central Pennsylvania. She has been writing since she was a teenager, whenever she finds time and inspiration. The title for her most recent book, My Other Name Is Mom, was inspired by the quote, “My greatest blessings call me Mom.” She has also written two devotional books and a book of short stories for teenagers. When she isn’t doing things for or with her family, you may find her reading a book. Mary enjoys people, solitude, a good latte, a clean house and a rainy afternoon.
