Also follow me on:

Mary Ellen Quigley was born in Hammond, Indiana. She is the youngest of two children. She got the writing bug as a child in the fifth grade. The assignment was to write a funny story, and she has loved writing ever since.

Mary Ellen's love of writing continued when she went off to Marian University in the fall of 2000. She graduated in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Music. She also attended Calumet College of St. Joseph, in order to complete state teacher licensing requirements and graduated with honors in 2008.

Mary Ellen took time after college to focus on caring for her ailing parents. She also used this time to focus on her writing and began writing articles for online ezines and websites in early 2009. She made a career change to the hospitality industry in 2011, and after a long time away from church, began to get involved with local ministries. Mary Ellen also volunteers with the American Diabetes Association in honor of her mother.

When not writing, Mary Ellen can be found with her feet up and her nose in a good book. She also enjoys gardening, crafts, spoiling her niece and nephew rotten, and spending time with family.
