Mary Barr Books

As a Fiction Author, Mary Barr’s preferred genres are juvenile, young adult and adult. Writing in a variety of genres enables her stories to remain fresh, stimulating and challenging. As each plot unfolds she knows the feelings, needs, personality and fears of her characters, whether they are good or evil.

Mary Barr’s books are pure fiction; at no time is there any relevance to persons living or dead. Her many characterisations are as limitless as her imagination restricted merely by the hours in each day.

Each new book presents itself in a clear and concise manner and she must immediately put pen to paper if she is to capture the story before it’s compromised. It is the characters who build the plot and each story line is only as strong as the people it portrays.

Having travelled extensively and experienced life in different countries throughout the world, Mary Barr is able to draw on her life journey as she creates colourful and varied characters. It is these characters who once alive capture the reader’s imagination while enhancing her fast paced and compelling story line.
