About Mary Byrne Eigel

Before writing children’s books, Mary spent many years teaching in classrooms and creating art in her studio. She was born with bi-lateral hip dysplasia, a painful condition that causes normal activities, like walking, to be challenging. As a child, when Mary had to trek long distances, she often wished she had a wheelchair. For her, a wheelchair offered pain-free opportunities, not limitations. Mary grew up in Chicago, which is the lakefront inspiration for the town of Sail. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two dogs, Beaux and Trey.

  1. http://gracefulagony.wordpress.com/2010/02/11/the-pain-diaries/#respond links to an article on a play being produced based on the diaries of chronic pain survivors, while http://thepaindiaries.blogspot.com links directly to the project.
    The book and the play both sound very interesting. An online bookclub on “Remedies”?

  2. http://thepaindiaries.blogspot.com links to a project that is a play based on the diaries of a chronic pain survivor(s). http://www.gracefulagony.wordpress.com also blogs on the article, play and project.
    Both sound interesting. An online book club focused on Remedies (or other books on chronic pain)? What do you think?

  3. http://thepaindiaries.blogspot.com links to a play project based on the diaries of chronic pain survivor(s).
    Remedies sounds like the ideal book for an online book club to take on. What do you think?

  4. Been trying to add a comment to your post re Remedies. http://thepaindiaries.blogspot.com links to a play project based on the diaries of chronic pain survivor(s). Both looks at chronic pain sound interesting.
    I wonder if folks would be interested in some sort of online book club to look at books such as Remedies? Your thoughts?

    Phylor,
    Sorry this did not go through before. I think you raise a great point in doing an online book club share. And the pain diaries is s great project to reflect upon. I am going to get a copy of remedies and check it out.
    Thanks for the suggestions. Mary

  6. Didn’t realize that the comments had gone through — I got failure messages. Sorry to fill up your comments section with the same message over and over.

    No problem. I had it set to post, but maybe there was something going on with WordPress.
    I am hoping to get a copy of remedies today and really check it out.
    Good Day, Mary

  8. Just popping by to wish you a happy Friday! I was actually wanting to start an online book club from my site, but I haven’t had much feedback so far from people… I think it would be great fun!!

    GENTLE HUGS MARY!! I hope you are doing well!

    Jolene,
    Just got back from a fun vacation in San Diego. I remember seeing your post about online club, I think that is a great idea. Maybe we should just pick something and get it started. Any book in mind?
    Mary
