Hi there! I'm Mary E. Pearson, the author of eight novels including the award-winning series, The Jenna Fox Chronicles. My newest series, The Remnant Chronicles, kicks off with The Kiss of Deception on July 8, 2014!
I have been writing professionally for about fifteen years but I have always been enamored with story and character. My mother tells me I could be the most annoying little kid, waking up each day as a new character. Every morning she would have to ask me "who" I was for that day, because unless properly addressed I refused to answer anyone.
One time when I was about four years old, my parents were out shopping at Sears. They each thought the other had me by the hand when in fact I was exploring my own aisle (translation: I was lost!) Two salesladies found me and sat me on the counter, asking me my name so they could page my parents. I remember their consternation when I would only answer "Little Red Riding Hood." They couldn't shake my real name out of me no how, no way. I knew the value of persistence even then. My parents said they nearly fell over, when over the loud speaker they heard, "Would the parents of Little Red Riding Hood please come claim their child?" They knew exactly "who" was lost. These days I mostly wake up as myself, though I do seem to hang out with a lot of characters during the day.
Now I write full time from my home in San Diego--and hang out here from time to time. Happy to meet you! If you'd like to learn more about me or my books, check out:
