Mary Alayne B. Long
Mother ~ Housewife ~ Writer
My husband Rick and I have two children, Jake and Sadie Sue. We share a home with four dogs-Otis, Bear, Dixie and Molly & two cats-Katrina and Oliver. We all live a fun, fast paced and unpredictable life in
The Heart of Dixie.
I am a native of Heflin, Alabama and I savor all that small town, Southern life has to offer. I am a lifelong Methodist and love the
"Open Hearts, Open doors, Open Minds" philosophy of
The United Methodist Church because I truly believe
"Y'all" means "ALL"!
I am an overprotective Mother, expert furniture re-arranger, wanna-be philanthropist, etiquette enthusiast, hopeless dog lover and a loyal admirer of beautiful interior design.
An admitted fabric hoarder, I am constantly recovering some piece of furniture or hanging new drapes somewhere in my house.
I love to write and I truly enjoy coming up with stories that will give you something to laugh about and something to think about. I am a regular contributor at Good Grit Magazine as well as the Laurel Mercantile Journal and my first book; A Mother's Prayers for her High School Son is available
at Amazon.com and wherever books are sold.
My cookbook; Stirring Up Trouble: Funny Stories and Family Recipes from The Alabama Housewife is COMING SOON!
