Mary Chapman once dreamed of
becoming a princess, prima ballerina, firefighter,
police officer, Broadway actress and attorney-though
not necessarily in that order. But, being a voracious
reader, what she really wanted to be was a romance
novel heroine. And when that didn't happen, she
followed another dream: to be a singer.
Having earned her degree
in Vocal Performance, Mary still sings professionally
during the concert season. Her workdays are spent at
a regional investment firm, her evenings in various
rehearsals and her weekends singing in concerts or directing
her church choir or puttering about the house-unless
there's a really good shoe sale. During her off-days,
she can frequently be found hunched over her laptop,
playing matchmaker for her latest characters and berating
them when they refuse to listen to reason.
Mary lives in St. Louis,
Missouri with her husband and daughter. And, by the
way, she'd still love to be a romance novel heroine.
