About the author:
Appalachian born and raised, Mary O'Dell, poet with a crotchety black cat and an ageless heart, would live in a treehouse but there's not one big enough for all her books. Besides, at her age it would be a foolhardy venture. Instead, she allows that heart out on a regular basis to perch (sometimes warily) on her sleeve. The cat sleeps safe and sound on her chest at night.
Mary is founder and president of Green River Writers, Inc., which offers retreat and critiquing sessions year-round. Her mentoring series in poetry and memoir happen in cafes and coffee shops in and around Louisville, Kentucky.
Mary has several poetry collections to her credit, among them Poems for the Man Who Weighs Light and Living in the Body from Mellen Poetry Press, and The Dangerous Man by Finishing Line Press.
Mary is at work on a new novel, a family saga and love story that takes place in the West Virginia coalfields in the thirties and forties.
The Sweet Letting Go
When Reynolds Ernst, cynical and damaged of heart, returns to the little community of his birth after thirty years' knocking about, little does he know that he's about to rediscover the love of his life - only to be faced with the prospect of losing her forever. This is the story of how two people search for, and find, healing and peace in the midst of loss. How they come to believe with all their hearts that love and family are worth the risk.
