She runs Moon Willow Press, a niche book publisher in British Columbia whose motto is helping to sustain forests while celebrating the written word. Mary is also the curator at and, sites that explore how nature and literature intersect. She is a guest author at, Free Word Centre, and Mary’s debut novel, under pen name Clara Hume, Back to the Garden, was originally published in the fall of 2012. It’s being revised into the first part of the Wild Mountain series, due out in the fall of 2018. The second part of the series, To the Waters and the Wild is a nod to Yeats and Mary’s memorable visit to the west coast of Ireland in 2016 (another adventure that included her mom!).
