News from M. L. Foxx

Welcome to Mary's Garden where imagination blooms. 

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

Today I'm going to turn the blog over to my other persona M. L. Foxx. 

2021 is just starting and I have hope for the future. I have goals I've set for myself and I plan to follow through. 

I have a little background to share on M. L. Foxx and how and why I wrote the Celtic Myst Trilogy. As Mary I had the idea to write a story about Celtic Myth, fantasy, etc. for years. However, the actual story was just out of my grasp. And then a few things happened and the story fell into place and I had to write it. 

First, as most of you know I'm adopted. Well I didn't know what my heritage was, but I had this affinity with anything Irish. Folklore, Ireland, St. Paddy's day. My parents (adoptive) were German and Dane, what a combo, right? Anyway, I started at a young age saying "I'm adopted I can be anything I want, so I'm Irish." 

Fast forward 60 years and I did the DNA, and you got it... I'm Irish. I'm actually 90% Irish, Scottish and a bit of English thrown in the mix. Then I did the adoption search and found my birth parents. I met my birth mother, Anderson - That's a story for another blog. That line traces mostly to the Scottish side. And I was too late to meet my birth father, who's last name is Fox. But I found my half-sister. Through her I found that my grandmother's family came from Ireland. 

After I found this information of course I had to visit Scotland and Ireland. The minute I stepped onto Irish soil I felt HOME. When I returned my story flew. And trilogy was born. All my other books are romantic suspense, womens fiction, romance and one middle grade. Not a fantasy in the bunch. My other persona was born. M. L. Foxx. 

The story is in three sections. I published each as a book. Then when it was completed I published the complete trilogy as one book. 

This week, I received a review for the trilogy. The reviewers words humbled me. It is by far the best review I have received as Mary or M. L. and I believe it is because my heritage, my love of the culture and people all came out in my words

Here is the review:
My Rating: 5+ stars 
Celtic Myst: The Complete Trilogy is a brilliant epic fantasy from start to finish.
The world-building is exceptional and truly transports the reader. What makes it such a compelling read is how M.L. Foxx layers in classic Celtic mythology. The plot progression is paced perfectly, with natural ebbs and flows. The characters are so well developed, they became a part of me. It’s been a long time since I’ve read such a sublime fantasy trilogy and yes, I believe Professor Tolkien would agree. If you’re looking for your next epic fantasy to binge-read, pick up Celtic Myst: The Complete Trilogy. Highly recommend!

Celtic Myst Trilogy is a story of good against evil. A story of great love that spans
centuries. And above all, a story of courage.
