About Mary McGuire
Mary McGuire moved to Ely for two years in 1998 and forgot to leave. She writes as a hobby, mainly second rate comic novels and slightly less second rate poetry. She also used to give third rate stand up performances but she sat down 10 years ago and has tried to avoid getting up at all, if possible, since.
In the real world, she has enjoyed a long and varied career working for anyone prepared to give her a reasonably interesting job in marketing; from the arts to the professions, technology and transport. These days she works for herself as an artist, drawing things on commission for anyone willing to pay. She supplements her income being a marketing consultant in her spare time. The two were meant to be the other way around but hey! When has anyone's life panned out the way they expect?
She spends far too much time reading, writing, listening to music and collecting kitch objects - usually toys - and not nearly enough time working.
A few of her favourite things are: Mr McGuire, Chewbacca the cat, Captain Scarlet, Dr Who and her car.
She has a website: Drawn By Hand
