WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE
I hope you will enjoy exploring its pages. Let me know if you do!
I'd love to hear from you.
Mary Mackie is the author of over seventy books in various genres of fiction and non-fiction, original English-language hardbacks
from publishers in both the UK and the USA, with numerous subsidiary editions plus translations into some twenty foreign
languages. Several of her titles are now available as eBooks via
with more to come.
My updated History of the
PMRAFNS (RAF Nurses), which includes three new chapters bringing
the story up to 2014, is now available in the shops and
on electronic devices to coincide with the First World
War anniversary commemorations and, hopefully, to catch the Christmas
trade. The publishers feel that the original book's title SKY WARDS is not
quite right, so they have retitled it
WARDS IN THE SKY, the RAF's remarkable nursing service.

National Trust house, see

eBooks, these titles have
now been in print for 20-odd years. Many thanks to Orion for their
continuing belief in them.
I have launched
my latest, CHRIS, see
under the banner of our own publishing company, Morningside Publishers.
CHRIS is my late husband's personal story and has been selling amazingly well
in paperback locally, as well as in electronic form. To connect with my Kindle page go to

Short stories have been occupying my time, too
(anything to avoid housework!), though most of them are a bit quirky
with no immediately obvious market. I plan to bring a selection out in
eBook format, just for the hell of it. For a sample, have a read of the
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mary lives on the coast of eastern England, in
beautiful Norfolk, not far from Sandringham House. She and her late
husband (who died in August 2014) have two brilliant
and successful sons, two charming daughters-in-law and four wonderful
grandchildren. (Are you reading this, family?) Besides full-length books, Mary has published many short stories and articles and has written and produced several one-act plays.
She has also appeared in several major productions presented by the
Players of Hunstanton, Norfolk, and hopes to do
more with them. A highlight was playing Clairee in 'Steel
Magnolias' in 2012, for which Mary received rave reviews.
She is the founder of four separate writing groups and has taught several well-filled classes in Creative Writing.
Wearing her public-speaker
hat, she travels far and wide to give
Talks illustrated by
PowerPoint Presentations which she designs herself - another
enjoyable hobby. Talk subjects cover a wide range from the ups and downs of her writing career to the true-life history researched for her
She also designs and maintains two websites,
including this one; so if there are bloopers you will know why!!
The other website is for the Princess Players (formerly the Princess Theatre Club) find them at:
