Mary Fancher is an artist and writer residing in Baldwinsville, New York. She received her degree in art from the State University of New York at Binghamton, but her real education began at the age of four years old when she first took pencil to paper.
For over twenty years, she worked in the information technology field as a computer programmer, analyst and project lead. During this time she still managed to indulge her creativity in both art and writing. Since retiring early, her creative output has exploded. Her recent book, THE LOVE LETTER OF JOHN HENRY HOLLIDAY (available through Amazon) was on the short list for the 2015 Historical Novel Society's Indie Editor’s Choice Award. A second (unpublished) novel, JOHN LEE, was one of the finalists for the South Carolina First Novel Award. A recent short story, THE POTATO FIELD was included in the Horror Zine fall 2015 anthology. Another short story, INCURSION was published in Sanitarium magazine.
Her drawings and paintings have been accepted into juried shows throughout the country, including Cooperstown, Lake Placid and Syracuse, New York. She has also had her work exhibited in galleries in the Adirondacks and South Carolina.
