Mary Kennedy Wins National Literary Award


Mary Kennedy, a practicing psychologist at Associates in Health Psychology in Wilmington and a mystery novelist at Penguin-Random House Books, pens stories described as “‘Frasier’ meets ‘Murder She Wrote.'” She recently told NewsBreak: “My agent just sold a new mystery series to Penguin / Berkley for me. It’s a three-book deal! Here are the details from Publishers Weekly:

“Mary Kennedy’s Nightmares Can Be Murder, in which a group of women find their Friday-night dream-interpretation club caught up in the middle of a murder investigation, [was sold] to Berkley . . . by Holly Root at Waxman Leavell Literary Agency.” 

Mary won an award from the National Endowment for the Arts for “artistic excellence in literary fiction.” A popular workshop presenter, she has spoken at more than a hundred conferences, libraries and schools, all over the country. Her articles and features have appeared on NPR, BookPage, PW, USA Today, and The Huffington Post. She writes a regular column on health and wellness for Gannett and entertainment pieces for USA Today, NPR, PW, the Huffington Post and Bookpage. Mary invites you to visit her online.
