Mary Davenport was born in 1942 and has lived in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, California, Michigan, and North Carolina.
She graduated from high school in 1961, but claims to have diplomas from the University of Life. When the Universe is your teacher, the lessons are tough, and the tests tougher. She claims she will always be mentally prepared to dig deeper so she can climb higher toward the summit of her life.
Mary and her husband graduated from the same high school and have been married since 1962. Together they have four sons, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
Her hobbies are yard work, reading, cooking, sewing, antique shopping, and of course, writing.
