Mary M. Cowan is a freelance writer and editor who makes her home in Seattle, Washington. Before settling in Seattle she lived in California, Texas, Illinois, Nevada, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, not in that order, and spent most of her adult life working in and managing bookstores before taking on full-time writing in 1988.
When she is not reading Tarot cards or writing about them Mary enjoys books, movies, travel, brewing tea, and wearing her lucky socks. She has one cat of advanced age and curmudgeonly habits, four adult children and five grandchildren. 15 Minutes a Day to Tarot is her first book.
