Traveled the world via cruise ship in 2012.Hiked Pikes Peak a few times for charity and ran a half marathon in Jan. 13 at Disneyworld. I am training for my first full marathon in October 2013. I also am a spin instructor and


Background Information

Since I have been traveling almost full time via motorhome, I decided to pursue my passion and write.I now have the time to devote to it. My first book, THE PERFECT DRESS is available for purchase at most .com bookstores and my website www.booksbymaryjanecole.com. It is a retro novel set to the music of the times about one woman's struggle to make a name for herself in the bridal design field, her challenges, her loves and mistakes along the way and the colorful characters she meets in her life.

Birth Place
Chicago, IL USA
Accomplishments

I have some achievements I am most proud of my tennis achievements, my work in social services and mostly my design ideas with Interior work. The design of the Barkery K-9 cafe' was a hoot as it was on international tv; speaking in Vero Beach Florida on design; some newspaper articles on my design accomplishments and living to be 55 years old relatively unscathed mentally and physically.
Recently my husband and I took up hiking and we tackled some of the pretty difficult hikes in Colorado. I loved it so much I hiked Pikes' Peak for charity this year. It was an awsome experience! I am going back to do a rountrip- to the summit and back down. 13,200 feet! 7,500 vertical feet one way. Not bad for an old hag. I am running and plan to do a half-marathon someday soon.

Additional Information

I recently spoke at the Schaumberg, Illinois library on my debut book, "The Perfect Dress." My second novel, Gorko! Mississippi Mud and Moscow Madness is complete and has been out since spring 07. I am working on my third novel which will be out in spring 2013 and a project with my husband- a book on his 50 year career in medicine as a Psychiatrist. I managed to write a short story entitled Publish or Perish. I have entered it in some minor contests. I will be doing more book signings of "The Perfect Dress" this fall in Vero Beach, Fort Pierce Florida and on the cruise ship, "Mariner of the Seas" in December. I wish I could land an acquisition agent to go with my novel and get it out there "big time" but, I just can't seem to please them with my query letters. I am another talent wasted! Destiny? Perhaps. Not knowing "someone?", for sure. GORK'O! My newest novel is entitled "Gor'ko!, Mississippi Mud and Moscow Madness"- a Russian dancer comes to America with his troupe to dance in Biloxi. He falls in love with a very young southern girl also a ballet dancer-but, she is pregnant with triplets by another man. The triplets are born during hurricane Katrina. She names them April, Mae and June. They marry and go to Russia. Things get complicated from page one. Humor, murder, love, hate. 250 p. softcover. Spring 07. It just won the 2013 Great Southeast Book award-Honorable mention. Woot! Woot!
