About

Toronto-native Mary Rajotte has a penchant for penning nightmarish tales that haunt and terrify. Sometimes camera-elusive but always coffee-fueled, Mary’s creepy tales explore myths, dreams and nightmares.

PUBLISHED WORKS

Her story Creepy Crawleys is included in Northern Haunts: 100 Terrifying New England Tales by Shroud Publishing while her story Like Flies to Honey is in the Winter 2010 Issue of Shroud Magazine.

Her piece “The Lockwood Collection” can be found in The Scroll of Anubis anthology from Library of Horror Press.

She also has a number of self-published stories, and is working on her first novel.

HER INSPIRATION

She is inspired by the drive & creativity of her grandmother, children’s writer Bernadette Rajotte, composer of A Child’s Christmas Prayer, and Young Hearts, which are a part of the National Library of Canada.

Bernadette Rajotte is also the author of countless short stories, as well as Who Am I?: A Mother Goose Quiz Book (1978), which is part of the Toronto Library’s Osborne Collection of Early Children’s Books.
