New York Times bestselling author Mary B. Morrison believes that women should shape their own destiny. Born in Aurora, Ill., and raised in New Orleans, La., she took a chance and quit her near six-figure government job to self-publish her first book, Soulmates Dissipate, in 2000 and begin her literary career. Morrison's books have appeared on numerous bestseller lists. Morrison is actively involved in a variety of philanthropic endeavors, and in 2006 she sponsored the publication of an anthology written by 33 sixth graders. In 2010 and 2014, Morrison produced a play based on her novel, Single Husbands, which she wrote under her pseudonym, HoneyB. Her wonderful son, Jesse Byrd, Jr., is the owner of Oiseau Clothes and writes novels for adolescents. Morrison currently resides in Atlanta.
