Mary Kendall

Updated: May 7, 2023

Author Mary Kendall lived in old (and haunted) houses growing up which sparked a life-long interest in history and story-telling. She earned degrees in history-related fields and worked as a historian for many years.

Now she joins us on the podcast to share her story & talk about her next upcoming novel. Follow Mary on social media & catch her Season 5 Extra on our BuyMeACoffee platform. The Spinster's Fortune is available in paperback, Kindle, & audiobook formats.

Her fiction writing is heavily influenced by the past which she believes is never really dead and buried. Fueled by black coffee and a possible sprinkling of Celtic fairy dust, she tends to find inspiration in odd places and sometimes while kneading bread dough.

The author resides in Maryland with her family (husband, three kids, barn cat, and the occasional backyard hen) who put up with her mad scribbling at inconvenient hours.

Her debut novel is The Spinster’s Fortune, a historical mystery. Her second novel, Campbell’s Boy, a historical fiction, coming of age tale, will be released in November 2022.

Tune in Wednesday, September 14th at 6 pm EST for our special interview with her, and visit our Buy Me Coffee platform for her exclusive Season 5 Extra at 12 pm that day.
