My conversation with Mary was both captivating and shocking!
Life was going great for her until one day she received a phone call from a woman
At that point, Mary was a business advisor for the Scottish Enterprise Network, married with three children, and owned her own home – then in April 2006 she got that phone call - from her husband’s other wife!
Not only was he a bigamist but he was also a con man who had ripped her off for just under £200k and had left her £56k in debt on credit cards he had taken out in her name.
She was left homeless, broke, and unemployed with three children to support on her own. Rather than letting it break her she decided to use the experience for good and wrote her first book, ‘The Bigamist’, which came out in 2007.
Her second true crime memoir is being launch on 1st March titled ‘The Psychopath’. Mary is now an international best-selling author and speaker, able to talk about topics from recovery to psychopaths, as well as a writing coach and publishing consultant
