About the Author

A few random facts about me:
I'm a fiction addict and a non-fiction enthusiast.

I love learning from Robert McKee, Cathy Yardley, Donald Maass, Karl Iglesias, Blake Snyder, and too many other authors to name.

I have been known to stay up all night to finish a new novel, devouring first and then re-reading to analyze.

I love teaching others about ways to improve their own fiction because I too have learned from other writers.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling author who has fan girl moments at every writer's conference I attend.

There's not a type of fiction that I don't love and study (except horror, if it's done really well it can scare the willies out of me and then I get nothing done for days! So I moderate my horror consumption).

I love being an author of both fiction and non-fiction work.

Love writing. Love talking about writing. Love sharing writing. And I love hearing from readers. Email me, anytime, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

Fantastic book on Hooking your Reader! This book was an excellent look at hooking your reader and not just at the end of the scene, but in the beginning, the middle and everywhere else. Mary talks about how hooks are not just from scene to scene, chapter to chapter, but paragraph to paragraph, within scenes, and throughout your whole book. She explains it in an easy to understand and apply way that you can quickly use immediately in your own writing. I highly recommend this and any other book by her!

I thought I knew every thing I needed to know about how to hook a reader. I was wrong. Writing Active Hooks is a refreshing look at how to hook by design and not by accident.

Mary Buckham has written a book that every writer should have! This book explains the different kinds of hooks a story has. It includes how to identify hooks, how to use hooks, where to use different kinds of hooks, and what type of hooks are best for the type of book you are writing. Mary has included examples that make it easy to understand. I am not a writer, but I found this book very interesting. I am looking forward to the next Writing Active Hooks book!
