Speaking Engagements


Love history? Love books that entertain while whisking you off to another time and place?
Invite Mary Hart Perry to speak to your group.

Mary Hart Perry has written and published, under several pen names, a wide variety of novels for adults, YA and early-teen readers. (Her pseudonyms include Kathryn Johnson, K. M. Kimball, Kathryn Jensen, and Nicole Davidson.) She has addressed enthusiastic audiences at the Library of Congress; at national conferences for the Historical Novel Society, International Thriller Writers, Romance Writers of American, and Mystery Writers of America; for Johns Hopkins University, the University of Pennsylvania, Howard University, and many regional writers’ festivals as well as numerous Book Clubs. She also teaches fiction writing at The Writer’s Center, in the Washington, DC area.

If your organization, school, or book club would like Mary to visit in person and design a program for your group, or your book club would like her to drop in by telephone during the meeting while you are discussing one of her novels, here is how to contact her for details:
