I’m Mary Shelley Reid, and I believe in the power of story. We humans all too often lock ourselves away from each other in anger, frustration, confusion, and loneliness. But stories can penetrate even the hardest of hearts. They foster empathy, tear down barriers and build bridges in their place. They give us perspective, clarity, hope. Stories show us that we are all human, and that that similarity runs deeper than anything that could ever divide us. 

I’ve been writing since I was eight years old, and I’ve never grown tired of the magic. My hope is to encourage, inspire, to shed light on darkness, and to ultimately point to the Creator of it all.
