MARY GENEVIEVE FORTIER
Imagine and Dream… two words that best describe the mind of this poet. An avid lover of the written word, Mary has penned many poems of various genres since the age of seven, having first been published by nine.
Mary grew up reading, watching, loving anything horror; Her darkside so to speak.
Classic authors, whose pens have etched greatness in works that not only create shivers down the spine but inspire movement of the soul — Such remarkable writers as Poe, Shakespeare, Browning, Gibran, just to name a few, gave Mary that special element that drives every poet to place their essence upon parchment. This became the ethereal foundation of her poetic form.
Writing as such gave way to countless poems/prose and other works, many of which found publication in anthologies. Today, she has not merely found a new voice but added an intrinsic octave to her repertoire; The genre of Horror, both poetic and fiction.
Mary’s poetry has been described as mystical, melodic, flowing with a unique grace that at times has been likened to the old world poets.
Her horror poetry has been deemed as “Poe-esque” by many.
She has most recently been accepted for publication in five horror anthologies, “Bones”, “Satan’s Holiday”, “Welcome To Your Nightmare” and the soon to be released, "Temporary Skeletons" and "When Monkeys Fly".
In addition to being in print, Mary’s Horror poetry is featured in “The Wicked Library” Season 3, Episode 307- a podcast, available on iTunes (release date 11/15/2013).
Currently, Mary has a position as a columnist, “Nighty Nightmare”, for http://www.stayingscared.com, a Horror website.
