Mary Burton’s southern family has always enjoyed tall tales and a good yarns. Early on, MB realized that Story had tremendous power to inspire strong responses such fear, laughter, love and even sorrow. After a decade of working in marketing and sales, MB became convinced she could write and sell one of the many stories buzzing around her brain. Fingers crossed, MB left the marketing profession and devoted all her spare time to writing a novel. Soon after, she sold her first manuscript to Harlequin Historicals. Since that initial sale, MB had written twelve historical romances for Harlequin Historicals, four short romantic suspenses for Silhouette Romantic Suspense and a non-fiction book The Insider’s Guide to Direct Marketing. Her romantic suspense titles have received critical acclaim from New York Times Best Selling authors Carla Neggers, Brenda Novak and Lisa Jackson as well as Library Journal and Publishers Weekly. Under the name Mary Ellen Taylor, Burton now writes women’s fiction. Her first release is The Union Street Bakery (2/13, Berkley Trade).
