About Mary

Meet Your Pajamas and Coffee Blogger

(contact: marytmccarthy (at) gmail.com)

I'm Mary McCarthy- better known as marymac. I've been a professional writer for nearly 20 years, including work in the Washington Post, Philadelphia Inquirer, Baltimore Sun, Victorian Homes magazine, many regional magazines in Maryland (two as Editor: What's Up Eastern Shore and Chesapeake Family) and several newspaper humor columns ('Quite Contrary' for Frederick Gazette and Centreville Record Observer). I started this blog in 2008 because I wanted a place of my own to use unlimited profanity while wearing pajamas and drinking coffee.

I'm currently an editor at Splice Today and I write a weekly column for Want2Dish. I'm also a contributing Katie's Crew blogger at katiecouric.com. I have appeared on The Today Show and ABC TV News' Moms Get Real with JuJu Chang. I've appeared as a speaker at national conferences including BlogHer ('10, '12), BloggyCon ('11, '12), and the regional Bay to Ocean Writers Conference ('10, '11, '12, '13).

Also: I'm a mother of four kids ranging in age from 18-7. I live on Maryland's Eastern Shore. I served on my local town council from 2004-2007, including a year as Centreville Town Council President, which is the equivalent of "Mayor" but we don't call it that because we are a weird little town. I enjoy Single Barrel Jack Daniels, Slim Jims, Ms. Pac Man and the reflection of the moonlight on the Chesapeake Bay.

I am the author of The Scarlet Letter Society, my first novel. I recently signed with my literary agent, the fab Myrsini Stephanides of the Carol Mann Agency in New York City.

Find me on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest.

Thanks for stopping by!
