Meet the Author

Mary Devey writes historical fiction and everything Wicca.


Her first book "Sold into Slavery: The Story of Adaku" addresses the effects of African slavery and its consequence for one woman and the people who surround her. Highlighted in three parts, the first part addresses Adaku's life as a kidnapped woman sealed away from the rest of the African world in a place called a baracoon where she meets other kidnapped tribal women like her.


Mary is currently working on Part II to highlight The Middle Passage.


Mary has also recently completed Part I of her Wicca Trilogy which promises the most unusual - Rebirth: The Gathering of the Witches. Other books written include, "In Her Mama's Shoes" - a coming of age book that addresses the tragic consequences for a young girl who instead of looking onwards, turns the pages of time to only learn too much about her Mama.

Liked the story and history. The prose was tortuous and drug along so slowly. Would NOT recommend.
