Mary Beth began writing as a child and hasn’t stopped since. Her first published work came about as a book review for the children’s page of the local newspaper. Throughout the years, her mother (her biggest cheerleader) urged her to write a book. Although she had contributed to several anthologies, she hadn’t written a complete book on her own. That changed shortly after her mother’s death. Her debut novel, Death in the Daylilies, finally put her name on the binding of a book.
The cozy mystery introduced the fictional Pearl River County, MS town of Cypress Point and protagonists Mercy Bellini McKay, her sister Hope Bellini Appleton and their friend Susannah Greenley Bowles. The three ladies returned for Ambush at the Arboretum and the current work in progress, Blood on the Bottletree. They are among the Cypress Point citizens who show up in the short stories of Mary Beth’s Cypress Point Chronicles, collections of stories written over the years.
