Mary C. M. Phillips is a caffeinated wife, working mother, and writer. Her stories and essays have appeared in numerous national bestselling anthologies.
Writing stories, essays, and poetry is a way of seeking and creating beauty. It also helps us to see beauty in others. Good words — like choice musical notes — quiet the restless soul.
As a reader, I’m particularly drawn to the works of Jane Austen and some of my writing falls into the genre of Austen fan fiction.
