About the Author
Mary Wolf wrote her first novel at the age of 12 when she ran out of
TRIXIE BELDEN books. She wrote her own. She and her friends became secondary characters in
the story. Then Mary and her best friend discovered Harlequin Romances (smuggled from her
friend's mom) and so began her love affair with the romance genre.
Several careers (and motherhood) have kept Mary occupied over the years but she continued
to read romances and dreamed of writing them. Her fifth trip to accompany her Invention
Consultant husband to the National Inventor's Congress sparked the idea for her first
novel. Stopping in a store for a paperback to read while her husband was busy, she instead
picked up a notebook and started writing THE MARRIAGE PATENT.
Mary belongs to EPIC (Electronically Published Internet Connection) and is a former
owner of Hard Shell Word Factory, and a former member
of RWA, WisRWA, the Outreach Chapter of RWA, the FF&P RWA Chapter, Painted Rock
(Online) Writers and Readers Colony. She resides in central Wisconsin with her husband,
Rodney, their surviving son Wayne, their granddaughter Megan, three cats, and an assortment of uninvited wildlife.
