Talking to Mary Daurio, a contributor to The Best of CafeLit 11


How did you come to write for CafeLit?  

I found out about CafeLit from a writing group. 
What do you most like about CafeLit? 
What I like most is the personal editorial connection. Gill, a writer, knows what it is like to be on both ends. 
Also, I like reading the stories published and am proud to be published in CadeLit. It was a bonus that writers could tape themselves reading their story and now send a pic to be on your blog, Gill. That is above and beyond.
What else do you write?
Sometimes, I write poetry and flash. I'm trying to edit a novel I fancy is a Dick Francis takeoff (Ha! I dream), a memoir, and a turn of the century coming of age, spiritual story. My best writing is my grocery list, but usually, I only write it and never read it as I leave it on the kitchen table.
Where can we find more of your work?

Tell us something surprising about you!
Perhaps not surprising, but I was one of Ontario's first and only female Standardbred racehorse drivers. Also, I can't spell to save my soul.

Anything else you’d like to say?
Thank you for being approachable and for all your work, and the editors for taking the time to pick stories for the anthology. I sent a pic of me back in the day driving a horse, so you know I wasn't spinning a yarn.
