Mary was born in Australia, lived in Malta and finally moved to the UK twenty years ago, where she currently lives.
She has kept a journal of her thoughts and life experiences since the age of sixteen. Her other publication so far, Liberation at Long Last, by M. Mallia (XLibris 2014), is a touching semi-autobiographical account, in novel form, of her inner journey alongside that of her mother's, inspired by her late mother's brutal suicide twenty years earlier. It depicts how despair and death are triumphantly overcome by love, faith and forgiveness.
Mary's love of poetry can be traced back to her secondary school days, but she only started writing poetry herself in the last three years.
