Mary Pauline Lowry

Mary Pauline Lowry is an Austin, TX native now living in Southern California. A closet meathead, she can tell you on any given day how many pull ups she can do. (Right now it’s six!) She rock climbs even though she is terrified of heights.  Her favorite films are Whale Rider, Ghost Dog, and Anvil: The Story of Anvil. She is the author of The Earthquake Machine, a novel. 
 
Her novel Wildfire, based on her experiences as a forest firefighter on an elite “hotshot” crew, will be published by Skyhorse in Fall 2014. 
 
She believes that women should make art, have adventures, and support each other. To read her manifesto, click here.
