Mary Batson is a speaker, a storyteller, a bridge builder, and a big fan of apple butter. While learning to fly, this barnstormer-in-training is spreading her wings and serving others as they do the same. Her book Going Home, a finding-myself journey of spirituality with a homespun twist, is due out soon: be ready for the party!
Mary weaves stories about grandmas and fresh biscuits, rocking chairs and talking trees, tales that remind us of comfort, home and hope. Based on her own journey, Mary also shares stories about finding ourselves, finding others, and finding Spirit, and offers workshops, talks, and performances on these themes. Having faced the challenges she now spins yarns about, this flygirl is not afraid to take her readers there with her, with the hope that even one might be inspired to find her voice, spread her wings, and learn to love again.
Additional publications include Going Home: The Tour LIVE, a collection of award-winning songs and stories from the Going Home stage show with Bob Sima, and Granís Apple Butter Blog. Several books are in the works, including a children's series which will complete Mary's vision Ė Front Porch Rambles and Backyard Swings. Next up: The Patchwork Heart: Finding the Courage to Love Again and Granís Big Book of Short Stories.
All in all, Mary is proud to carry on Gran's tale-spinning, apple-peeling tradition, with a little skydiving thrown in for good measure to keep things exciting. Come on by Granís front porch Ė they love company.
