Mary Anne Gruen

Mary Anne loves characters …

Foxie Pavement RoseShe loves to sit back and let them tell their stories ... even when they're talking dragons.

Fanfiction was where she found her writing “voice” and learned to get out of the way so the Muse and the characters could tell the story.

Mary Anne is presently working on a fantasy series in the sword and sorcery category called "The Starlight Council of Draegon." The first book is “Tambour and It's Secrets.” And it deals with the secrets of the Shadow Faeries, which spill over the generations and affect not only Tambour, but the whole continent.

When not dreaming about talking dragons and faeries, Mary Anne can be found with her husband walking their dogs, or working on a community theatre show. Not surprisingly, she likes large dogs with big personalities. And big musicals with large casts.
