"The only thing I love more than learning is sharing what I learn. Reading helps me--whether it is fiction or non-fiction. Writing, lets me share what I have learned though several decades of life." Mahrie G. Reid
Mahrie created stories before she could write and later captured them in Hilary Notebooks. An avid reader, she lost herself in books, learned things in books from Five Little Peppers and How They Grew to a sneaked copy of Lady Chatterley's Lover. She decided stories were a critical element to a full life and thought that writing books would be the best job ever.
Pursuing an education, acquiring a husband and kids and a busy career overtook her writing for many years. She continues to read copiously, studied writing craft and shared her learning in workshops, conferences, and courses.
Mahrie always wrote, publishing non-fiction, short stories, and poetry as Mahrie Glab & Mary Creaser. She has now come full circle, returning to writing mystery novels.
The Caleb Cove Mysteries series has four books as at 2019. (See the Books tab.) And her historical, The Left-Behind Bride is currently a stand-alone. All five books are set on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.
Mahrie is a member of Alberta Romance Writers Association, Sisters in Crime and is a graduate of Calgary's Citizen's Police Academy and Private Investigation 101.
As Mahrie (Creaser) Glab she is also a freelance, non-fiction writer (see bibliography) and instructor/facilitator for creative writing courses. After a hectic real estate appraising career in Calgary, Alberta, she enjoys the slower pace of her writing career and her activities in the writing community. She resides in central Alberta with her husband and a cat called Kotah.
