Mary E Hanks Inspiring Hope

About Mary


Mary Hanks, author of the Second Chance series, loves stories about marriage restoration. Karen Kingsbury's A Time to Dance and Francine Rivers's And the Shofar Blew are some of her favorites. She believes there's something inspiring about couples clinging to each other, working through their problems, and depending on God for a beautiful rest of their lives togetherand those are the types of stories she wants to write. Mary and Jason have been married for forty+ years, and they know firsthand what it means to get a second chance with each other, and with God. That has been her inspiration in writing the Second Chance series. If she can encourage couples to get through their storms together, that's what she wants to do.
 
Mary worked in Christian education for many years. She loves Youth Theater and has written and directed over twenty full-stage productions. Her love of theater inspired her to write the Youth Theater Adventures for kids 10-14. Besides writing, Mary likes to read, do artsy stuff, go on adventures with Jason, and meet her four adult kids for coffee.
