Mary Tate Engels

(Mary Frances Tate Engels)

aka Corey Keaton, Cory Kenyon, Tate McKenna

Mary Tate Engels grew up in the South, listening to stories and telling a few, herself.  Like most writers, She reads everything she can and was always writing, writing, writing. Her tipping point, from reader to writer came when her three children were young.

Between baseball, soccer, and endless pizza, She got a magazine assignment to do restaurant reviews. What could be better getting paid to eat and write about it! An encounter with a very large raw oyster took the glow off that charmed career.

At a writers conference in Houston, She squeezed into a packed room for a fiction workshop and discovered the lure of creating another world taking a cast of characters on a journey of exploration and change. Or, letting them take her.
