How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
There aren’t many Astrological authors. It’s quite a niche subject. I got a lot of help from Donna Cunningham and Judy Hall, two other Astrological Authors. They helped with endorsements and read some of the books and gave feedback.
I have to know a lot about my subject to write about it and I use Astrology everyday with my clients, so I find it easy.
I don’t meet too many other Astrological Authors but a lovely one called Nikki Harper, who I ‘met’ on-line and who is a Virgo herself, agreed to read the book before publication and give me an endorsement.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write about what you enjoy.
If you’re struggling to write something, then it can’t be a subject you like. If the words just fall from your brain, then it’s ‘meant-to-be’.
…and don’t give your writing to anyone until it’s finished.
Then only give it to someone who understands the whole writing process.. This is your baby after all…..later on, after feedback, get a GOOD editor.
Mary English was born in London and educated in Switzerland at the American International School of Zurich. She comes from a large family and is one of 5 children.
She was Resident Astrologer for the bi-monthly green parenting magazine ‘The Green Parent’ for 5 years and appeared for 2.5 years to ‘Do the Stars’ on the Emma Britton Morning Show on BBC Radio Somerset.
She now Resident Astrologer on the Hannah Murray Show on Talk Radio Europe, Spain’s largest English language radio network, broadcasting on the Costa del Sol/Axarquia and Costa Blanca/Costa Calida and reaching 1,000,000 English speaking consumers and on BBC Radio Bristol on the Livvy & Chrissie 12 o’clock show. She writes a Sun sign column for the local publication Pukka Bath.
Mary lives in Bath UK with her small family and her black cat. She sees clients face-to-face and writes personal Birth Charts for visitors to her website. It was these consultations that inspired her to write about the Sun Signs to help her clients understand their motivations and learn about their Astrology profiles. In 2001 Mary gained a Diploma in Homeopathy and as well as helping clients with their spiritual development, she is also qualified to help them with certain health issues. It is with this background ‘on-the-front-line’ with real people that her series of How to Survive the Zodiac is based.
Mary has been writing since she was 13 when her sister Lucy (a published author of fiction) gave her a diary for her birthday.
Mary is a member of the Society of Authors, The Astrological Association of Great Britain and The Association for Astrological Networking. She is a reformed Pisces.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I started writing just about my own Sun sign-Pisces, but my publisher said he didn’t just want one book from me. I then realised I’d got a rather long project on my hands and spent the next 3 years writing about each sign of the Zodiac.
My clients and my family are my inspiration! I collected the birth data of over 36 people and interviewed another 10 or so for the book itself.
I had to ‘think’ like a Virgo, to be able to write about them!
