Where I Live
Mary travels widely and has given talks in many countries. She has been interviewed on television and radio programmes for the BBC, most recently to tell the world about Trix, Rudyard Kipling’s sister. Passionate about research, she’s published four non-fiction books. But it was Rudyard Kipling who lit her imagination as a child and Mary had always wanted to write about him. Realising that the story of his sister, Trix, was just as compelling, she embarked on Kipling & Trix, her first novel, which was awarded the Virginia Prize for Fiction in 2012. She is also the current chair of The Kipling Society.
