Top Ten Things You Might Not Know About Author Mary L. Schmidt


Visions of her Cherokee grandmother,
Cordie, flashed through Mary’s mind as her mother, Marguerite, informed her
that her stepfather shot himself and was in the hospital. Oh no! Did she use me
last night? She’d never use her scapegoat! No, she couldn’t! Even Marguerite
wouldn’t sink that low! Or would she? Marguerite had always been abusive and
vile to most people, and especially to her children and husbands, but would she
shoot Paul? Chills raked Mary and triggered her
shuddering. Was she more shocked that her mother shot her stepfather with
murderous intent, or that she left Mary as her alibi? Amazon:

the Author: 
Mary L. Schmidt writes
under her given name and a pen name, S. Jackson, along with her husband
Michael, pen name A Raymond. She grew up in a small Kansas (USA) town and has
lived in more than one state since then. At this time, Mary and her husband
split their time between homes in Kansas and Colorado as they love the
mountains and off-road four-wheeling. Traveling is one of their most favorite
things to do and Mary always has a book to read on her Kindle. Books are one of
her favorite things. When she was younger, it seemed like every time she turned
around, a new library card was needed due to the current one being stamped
complete. Diving into a good book made any day perfect and you would be
surprised at the number of books she read over and over. Mary and Michael love
to read, fish, play poker, go Jeeping, and travel, especially to visit their
grandson, Austin, and granddaughter, Emma.
