Mary H. Sawyer
Mary H. Sawyer lives on the banks of the beautiful Saint John river in New Brunswick. Her career as a public school teacher and administrator serves as her inspiration for the Stella Page series. She loves setting her mysteries in ordinary circumstances that most people would be familiar with until the crime is uncovered. Then it becomes a question for the reader: What would I do if that were me?
Her blog can be found at http://rewireforfun.blogspot.ca. where she writes about issues she finds funny or interesting. You might find the odd short story there as well.
