About the Author:

Mary O’Hare, a former teacher with degrees in both education and music, has always been an avid reader. While managing the challenges of corporate moves with her husband to several major metropolitan areas she remained at home to raise five children which allowed her time to pursue, through continuing education, her love of cooking and reading. She currently resides in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
