The author of “Concealed” and “The Heartstrings Legacy” series of books, Mary “Dynk” McDonald has been writing since childhood. A native Texan, born and raised in the Lone Star state, she resides near the coastal bend of South Texas. Pronounced ‘Deenk’, as in dinky and small, she is the youngest and smallest of four children whose father gave her the nickname and mother gave her the phonetic spelling. The same mother who taught her how to cook from cookbooks as well as from memory, choosing the simpler, less complicated methods of cooking. Mary’s path to unprocessed and healthier eating took on a greater intensity after allergy testing indicated a link between foods and sinus problems. You can find Mary on Facebook.
