Mary O Paddock


Mary’s books are available on  


If someone were to ask Mary Paddock why she writes (and, strangely, they never have), she would reply that she is in love with the idea that we really don’t know as much as we think we do.  Writing allows her to explore the possibility that we are wrong about everything. Why not buffalo on Mars? Why not mermaid kindergarten teachers?  And running away from home isn’t just for teenagers.

Mary is the author of numerous published short stories and five novels. A couple of years ago, with the encouragement of friends and family, put together a collection of some of those short stories and published them under the title “SING”.  Since then she’s published another collection entitled “Souvenir” as well as her first novel “Fassen Files”.

She lives in the Ozarks with her husband and four boys. They share their home with numerous dogs and cats who understand three key facts: humans worry about all the wrong things, sleep when they should be awake, work when they should play, and need looking after.
