Mahrie has released her second book in the Caleb Cove series – Katya Binks Came Home From Away. This is an intriguing mystery. Mahrie has the ability to pull you right into her stories and create scenes you will enjoy.
Mahrie G. Reid grew up in small Nova Scotia and Ontario towns. She read copiously and wrote her first novel at age eight. A minister’s daughter in the the fifties, she was encouraged to be a nurse, teacher or office worker so she’d had something to ‘fall back on’ if anything happened to her husband. She did what was expected and tried all three professions before becoming a Real Estate Appraiser, a newsletter editor, an adult educator, an office organization consultant, a library manager and a marriage commissioner among other things. At all times she continued to write, often as part of her job. She always studied writing skills and presented workshops to share what she learned.
In addition to her trade and technical writing on the job, her published works include short stories, poems, and newspaper features. Now she writes mystery novels with a touch of romance and considers all other phases of her life as preparation for her writing life.
Katya Binks Came Home From Away is her second novel. Her first novel, Sheldon Harris Came Home Dead, was published in February 2014. Mahrie lives in Central Alberta with her husband.
