Author Series - Mary Lawrence, "The Alchemist Daughter" - Tuesday October 24th at 7:00pm.
Mary Lawrence has always loved a well-told story and has an interest in Tudor England. About twenty years ago she stumbled upon a book about alchemy and came up with the idea for a daughter of an alchemist who lived during the reign of Henry VIII.
The original tale was a coming of age story. An agent signed her on, but the manuscript never sold no matter how many times she rewrote it. She worked in labs and supplemented her income writing indexes for small presses. In her free time, she wrote other manuscripts, improving her skills slowly over the years. After another couple of near misses selling a manuscript, she rethought her story about alchemy and decided to try to write a mystery. She had never written a mystery before, but took it on as She personal challenge. "The Alchemist's Daughter" is the result.
