As a feminist and former Roman Catholic theology major, God's operation
in the modern woman's soul intrigues Mary Ellen Knox. However, the stage
on which her characters act is rarely religious. Bag ladies, prostitutes
and "crazy women" populate her mundane, secular and very human
settings. In stories centered on
female sexuality, the most powerful tool for reinforcing male social
norms, women fight the everyday battle between personal faith and
organized religion's often abusive enslavement. She explores age-old
human issues, but under a unique female lens, which yields entirely new
conclusions based on feminine premises.
Her writing has been published in
magazines such as America, Military Chaplains' Review,
Daughters of Sarah, Our Family, Peace, and Writer's
Workshop Review. She is presently working on an historical novel, Xe
Mapia, a retelling of the story of Mary, mother of Jesus, from the
Mother of six children and eleven times a
grandmother, Mary Ellen Knox intimately knows "the stuff life is
made of." Striving always to honestly incorporate in her words an
understanding of humanity, she creates stories intended to make readers
feel, as well as think.
As Editor of Free-fiction.com she is

electronically. Because of that, she is offering all her
