Hi, I’m Mary.

I’ve spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life and feeling like I wasted a lot of time NOT focusing on one niche.

So as such, I’ve become a bit of Jack of all trades. The problem is I still can’t figure out what I want to do with my life. I love to dabble.

Then I realized recently there’s a place in the world for people like me! (Yes, I’m a bit slow on the uptake.) They’re called lifestyle blogs!? Holy shizt’oly!

I’m an unconventional person.

I’m polyamorous.

I’m a sexually charged person who practices BDSM and loves to write about it.

I’ve parented 7 children.

I’ve worked in many industries all from camp counselor, to barista, to telemarketer.

My lifestyle blog is eclectic and unconventional too!

If you don’t like curse words, probably should leave now.

When it all comes down to brass tacks, there is one thing I’m consistent about. Writing. I love to write.

I wanted to share my life experience and wisdom.

How often I thought to myself, I wish someone had told me that before hand…


The content on this blog is divided into 6 sections:
Brain Candy – Fictional LGBT themed short stories that first and foremost seek to entertain, yet also sneak in a morsel of wisdom or two throughout.
Poetry – For people who hate to read poetry. These might be some rhymes and rhythms you can get behind.
No BS Commentary – I’m liberal about sex, politics, and life. I like to rant about it sometimes. If you feel like no one understands you on the unconventional spectrum, these articles might appeal to you!
The Truth About… – Hindsight is 20/20 and if someone could have just told me the truth about certain things in life before I jumped in headlong, then it would have saved me a boatload of tears, time, and money. Hopefully my mistakes can be to your benefit.
Jack of One – Jack of all Trades – Master One! Use my experiences to glean some information about certain money making, job, or career pursuits
Mental Life Hacks & Hygiene – Life can be hard, we’ve all been through trauma and shit. Hopefully these tips and tricks can help you cope.


When I’m not writing, I’m supporting my husband and wife, (yes, you read that right – I’m polyamorous), being caretaker of minions, (losing track of how many – it’s like they multiply), you might find me crocheting, watching Deadpool or South Park again, or attempting to be Defender of The Universe.

Slight Disclaimer: All Universes exist within my imagination. Any attempts to access it may result in serious mind-bending alterations. You’ve been warned! Happy reading!

and Its Sequel ‘Even Stranger’

THE STRANGER is 10k word short story, written in folk-tale style, with a sprinkling of LGBT characters.

Barb has long held onto her feelings of romance for her good friend Greta, but Greta can’t get over her feelings for her possibly deceased husband who went to war many years ago. 

Other residents such as old-time neighbors, Harold and Seth, will also have to take a better look at the details of their long-held argument.

The Stranger moves into town like a quiet shadow, and when he leaves no one will remember him, and they will never be the same.

EVEN STRANGER is the 10k word sequel to THE STRANGER.
