You've discovered one of the numerous online homes of Mary
Elizabeth Williams. I'm a writer,
consultant, and radio commentator with about a thousand years experience,
give or take a century. Publications I've written for include Salon.com, The New York
Times, The New York Observer, TV Guide, Smith, and Yoga Journal. I've been a culture critic for PRI's The Takeaway and am a regular commentator for the CBC. Oh and since 2010 I've been chronicling my experiences with cancer. Good times.

My first book, Gimme Shelter, published in 2009 by
Simon & Schuster. Please BUY IT. In fact, why not BUY IT twice?
"Like an ancient storyteller, Williams keeps you amused
-- and engrossed in the plot -- while educating you." -- New York Post
"Honesty, humor, and surprising poignancy." --
An "engaging and personal look at the home-buying
process." -- Booklist (starred review)
“Poignant and funny.” -- Kirkus Reviews

Mary Elizabeth's law: There are two kinds of food --
those that can be improved with bacon, and those that can be improved
Mary Elizabeth's paradox: And yet, bacon and chocolate do not mix.
Mary Elizabeth's addendum: But butter goes with everything.
Like most people, I'm deeply cynical. Like most people, I'm also secretly optimistic.
Enough about me. Tell me about you. I'm sure there's a story.
