My Very First Print Interview for Leaving the Beach

Today, I’m so honored to be featured in the Winthrop Transcript. Reporter Cary Shuman was kind enough to interview me for his newspaper and write this great story.

Here’s the headline and first two paragraphs:

Former Resident Mary Rowen Authors Book Set in Winthrop

June 12, 2014


Local novelist Mary Rowen enjoyed living in Winthrop so much that she decided to make her main character in “Leaving the Beach” a resident of the town.

Rowen’s book, released by independent publisher Booktrope, is set primarily in Winthrop and is about a bulimic woman who  believes she’s destined to become the soul mate of a rock icon.

And here’s a link to the entire article:

Thank you, Cary Shuman!!






About Mary Rowen

My three published novels, LEAVING THE BEACH (a 2016 IPPY Award winner), LIVING BY EAR, and IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY focus on women figuring out who they are and what they want from life. Music and musicians have a way of finding their way into the stories. I live in the Boston area with my family and pets.
