Hello and welcome, once again, to the home page for Mary E. Kingsley. I’m delighted to announce the release of my latest work, a novella entitled All the Pieces, a story that unfolds over nearly a half century in a small corner of east Tennessee. A murder and a touch of mystery are the echoes of a time past in this Appalachian community, narrated by several distinct voices– among them the child at the center of the drama, as well as the storyteller’s colorful recounting of events.
We hope you’ll enjoy the additions to the website, updated to reflect the growing body of work represented here and the activity surrounding it. As always, our intention is for this to be a place where we can get to know one another better, because I’m as interested in my readers as hopefully they are in me. Read about me in my Bio, follow my observations, reminiscences, rants, and ramblings in the Blog. For an introduction to All the Pieces, visit About the Book, and if you’ve never met Angel, you can do so by listening to the audio clips on this page to learn more about the story. Then go to the Book Club page for all kinds of fun information for your reading group gatherings. Here is where you’ll find out about setting up a virtual or in person author visit to your area or your meeting. Extras are just that, mostly related to the books, and check out News and Events for the latest on readings, signings, media coverage, etc. One of the most important places on this site, however, is the Contact page, where you can go with feedback, questions and comments about the book, ideas for discussion, or anything at all you’d like to share. Register your Book Club here to be eligible for special offers and promotions and to set up an author visit. I look forward to this conversation with my readers, whether it’s through the website, on video camera or in person, because I sincerely want to know what you have to say.
