Mary K Gowdy
Author and Poet
To most people, I’m your stereotypical quiet, nice girl. What they don’t know is that I could talk for days. I can distract myself for hours with just my own mind, thinking about school, people, resentment, dating, politics, religion, sex, art, what I want to accomplish, what I’m meant to accomplish. I never feel like I have the opportunity to truly unearth all that goes on in my head. There’s interruptions, the conversation flows in a different direction, I’m scared, or there’s simply just too much to tell. I think all my thoughts, opinions, and experiences are threads in my life’s tapestry, and to pull one is to touch all the others. I can’t fully explain anything without explaining everything. I aim to weave that tapestry together with my words for others to read.
My Work In Progress
Dark Fantasy + Poetry
The One and the Other, Volume One
A depressed girl who wants to be freed
From a dangerous beast desperate for redemption
When a government's determined to destroy it
The One and the Other is a dark fantasy series set in the country of Loreiak. A girl is institutionalized when a dark presence awakens in her and speaks to her in poetry.
First Installment Coming Soon
As I explored the book and writing world on YouTube, I noticed a distinct lack of content about poetry. I wanted to create a channel to fill this void. I make tip videos, book reviews, and discussions but geared towards poetry. YouTube is also a great platform for sharing audio recordings of my original poetry. I do also make other AuthorTube related content.
I believe that to fully experience a poem, we need to hear it read in addition to seeing it on the page. I recorded myself reciting all my poem from Sensuality. and uploaded them to YouTube for your free enjoyment!
