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.
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.
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.
