Chapter Leader / Houston, TX "So You Want To Write"
ary Thompson was born in Oklahoma but, having lived 75% of her life in Texas, considers herself a transplanted Texan. Mary and her husband, Ed, currently live in Houston, Texas. They have been married since 1974 and have four children and nine grandchildren. Mary retired after 30 years as a legal secretary and is now pursuing a decades-long dream to write fiction with a purpose. Her passion is to write impactful stories that demonstrate God’s faithfulness and entice readers to join her quest to explore God’s character and nature. Mary loves words, whether she is reading words, writing words or playing word games. She also enjoys spending quality time with her family, having “no rules Saturdays” with her grandchildren, crocheting afghans and baby blankets, and traveling. Mary and her husband have visited 26 countries, on five of the seven continents; however, it is doubtful they will ever make it to all seven continents since Antarctica is NOT on their bucket list.
