Mary Sutton has been making up stories, and creating her own endings for other people’s stories, for as long as she can remember. After ten years, she decided that making things up was far more satisfying than writing software manuals, and took the jump into fiction.

“I would definitely be on the look out for more of this author’s work, especially if you have middle-grade readers. … a solid four stars….” – Indie Reviewers

She writes the HERO’S SWORD middle-grade fantasy series as M.E. Sutton and finds a lot of inspiration in the lives of her own kids. A lifelong mystery fan, she also writes crime fiction, including THE LAUREL HIGHLANDS MYSTERIES, under the pen name Liz Milliron. Her short fiction has been published at Uppagus.com, Mystericale.com (Spring/Summer 2013), and in LUCKY CHARMS: 12 CRIME TALES (coming December 2013).

“A fast moving plot and action packed adventure make for a fun read. I will recommend this to my middle school students!”

Like her LAUREL HIGHLANDS characters, Mary lives in Southwestern PA (but, unfortunately, she doesn’t have a dog) and is a student of Songham taekwondo. She is a member of Sisters in Crime and Pennwriters.
