Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it. Michael Jordan

Mary Paddock lives in the Missouri Ozarks near Table Rock Lake with her husband and an unspecified number of dogs and cats. When she's not writing, she's gardening, reading, or spending time with her four grown sons and their families.

Speak is her second novel. Other works by Mary include Bright, a commercially published supernatural novel, one science fiction novella, and two collections of previously published short stories (mostly fantasy, some science fiction). She has just completed her second science fiction novella and is hard at work on the next novel.

      • In my 50s, I'm finally in a place where I like myself most of the time. But it's taken learning how and when to protect myself and when to take risks. I am fortunate to be married to a supportive man who's helped me find my way.

        Maybe I wouldn't have arrived here who I am without all those struggles, but--if I had to do it all over again I'd--

        Listen more. Talk a bit less.

        Laugh a lot more.

      • Focus. I am A.D.D. Seriously. So getting to a place where I can just... sit down and write and not be thinking about all the other things in my life, all the things that are worrying me, the chores, messages from people, etc? It's a lot.
