A Room of One's Own is delighted to welcome Mary Rickert (familiar to science fiction fans as M. Rickert) for the book launch of her latest literary novel, The Memory Garden!

ABOUT THE BOOK: Sixteen-year-old Bay Singer doesn’t believe the rumors that her eccentric mother, Nan, is a witch. It’s just the gossip of their small New England town, Bay thinks … until two eccentric friends from Nan’s past unexpectedly appear one afternoon. The curious reunion summons haunting memories: of an oath the three women took years ago, when they were girls themselves, and the devastating secret they promised to protect. What they unearth has already claimed one life, leaving Bay wondering who are the real witches, and who is just plain wicked.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mary Rickert is a Nebula Award nominee, an International Horror Guild Award winner, and a multiple World Fantasy Award winner for short fiction. She has worked as a kindergarten teacher, a Disneyland balloon vendor, and at Sequoia National Park. She lives in Wisconsin, in a small city of candy shops and beautiful gardens. This is her first novel. More information can be found online at her website.
