About the Author: Mary M. Cushnie-Mansour

Report cards constantly trumpeted Mary M. Cushnie-Mansour as a daydreamer. Teachers felt if she paid more attention in class, her marks would be better. Little did they know what was going on in her mind... From a young age, all Mary wanted to do was write, and write she did. Through elementary school, high school, and into her early 20's she wrote poetry, short stories, plays, and songs. For a time, though, Mary let life get in the way of her passion, and it wasn't until she was in her mid-thirties when she returned to university that the flame re-ignited. While studying Forms of Fantasy - J. R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" Mary began writing again, pumping out poetry, children's stories, short stories, and the beginning seeds of what would become the "Night's Vampire Trilogy." Despite having completed her vampire trilogy, Mary enjoys writing a good mystery. She loves John Grisham's books and has every one of them. She also reads authors like: Ted Dekker, Sidney Sheldon, Patricia Cornwell,Kathy Reichs, Joy Fielding, John Saul, Nicholas Sparks, Jodi Picoult, and Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman. These are just a few of the authors Mary reads on a regular basis.

Mary's next projects include working on putting together her children's stories, and mysteries that have been sitting on the shelves for far too long - and, of course, a follow-up to the vampire trilogy to keep her fans happy!

In 1991, Mary registered a publishing company - Cavern of Dreams Publishing - through which she published not only her own works, but helps other writers realize their dreams. She now has an editing and illustrator staff that she works closely with for not only her own books, but those of other aspiring writers.

Mary's motto in life is to pursue your dreams no matter what life throws at you - it is never to late to "become."
