Author Biography - Vivian Hollis Mayne
Vivian Hollis Mayne was born, married and lived in Dublin, Ireland, until she was in her fifties. She has two daughters. In December 1982 she immigrated to Canada. Her first job was baby-sitting her first grand child. After which she worked as SECRETARY to a Musical Festival. However, throughout this time she yearned to fulfill a lifetime's ambition to write. On retirement she began writing screenplays, her first winning The Banff Screenwriters' Workshop Award. This was enough encouragement to continue. Short stories published in Irish magazines followed. But this was not satisfying enough. Over the years when she was growing up in Ireland, true stories told by her parents to the family (of which there were six) about 'the troubles' in Ireland, kept going around in her mind and she began to work on the novel "Whom God loves" (he persecutes) - an expression used regularly by her mother. Her other interest is music. Interspersed with her writing she plays the piano with Senior Bands providing entertainment for Seniors in Retirement Homes, Nursing Homes, Hospitals and Seniors in Care.
