It's never too late to make mid-course corrections!!
Mary T. Wagner is a former newspaper and magazine journalist who changed careers at forty by going to law school and becoming a prosecuting attorney afor the State of Wisconsin. However, she never could step away from the written word entirely, and inevitably the joy of writing drew her back to the keyboard.
A Chicago native, this mother of four and grandmother of several now lives in "coastal Wisconsin," where she draws much inspiration for writing from frequent trips to the shore of Lake Michigan, watching the waves ebb and flow and make shifting mosaics of sunlight on the sandy lake floor. Now retired from the law, Wagner's legal experience had ranged from handling speeding tickets to arguing and winning several cases before the Wisconsin Supreme Court...sometimes in the same week!
Wagner has received numerous national and regional awards for her slice-of-life blog essays and her books, which include the essay collections "Heck on Heels" and “When the Shoe Fits,” and the “Finnigan the Circus Cat” series of children’s chapter books for young readers...and the "young at heart!"
An award-winning photographer, she also currently has an exhibit of her nature photography on display at the University of Wisconsin's Carbone Cancer Center in Madison, Wisconsin.
Wagner's life experiences include the defining watershed of motherhood, and stints as a girl scout troop leader, truck stop waitress, office temp, judicial clerk, and radio talk show host. She counts both wearing spike heels and learning to use a cordless drill and chainsaw among her "late blooming" discoveries, and would be hard pressed to surrender either her favorite stilettos or her power tools.
