Book Passage – 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera
Mary-Rose Hayes will discuss writing her new novel WHAT SHE HAD TO DO; the reasons it took so long (more than ten years) and how that was a blessing in
disguise; why the characters in the book didn’t seem real until she stepped out of their lives and allowed them to develop on their own; and how, by the time she had typed “THE END” for the final time, she had surprisingly come to terms with past issues of her own.
British-born Mary-Rose Hayes is the author of eight previous novels including the TIME/LIFE best seller AMETHYST, and two political thrillers co-authored with Senator Barbara Boxer.
