INFORMATION
I was born in South Florida, Vero, Beach, Indian River County. I am the eldest of 4 siblings of 2 boys and 2 girls. Both Parents are deceased. I am a Licensed ordained Evangelist. I travel various places spreading the Gospel of good news in word and in deeds. I now reside in Ocala, Florida and retired 2 1/2 years from 32 years of service with Lockheed Martin.
I am legally separated and the mother of two Sons, Mark, 46 and Lonnie, 34. I have always written personality poems, and sometimes holidays and special occasion poems but never ventured to share them on this magnitude until I stumbled onto Fanstory, who has greatly motivated me through the insight, previews, and acknowledgements of the members. I hope to perfect my skills and perhaps publish my book soon. But in the meantime I'm enjoying entering contest and getting the encouraging feedback from my family here at Fanstory.

Mary Hollingsworth: I have met many wonderful people on this site which have been a help to me and and encouragement as well with their input, reviews and suggestions. I thank everyone in fanstory that I have had the privilege to communicate with add to fanstory I appreciate the platform presented. Now since I have been gone for almost 2 years and I've since then got married and I have begun a new adventure of teaching autistic children. I keep my maiden name which is Hollingsworth but my married name is Oibo. My first year anniversary will be this April 13th. I came on to retrieve my work and perhaps turn it into a book. With my new-found Venture of teaching autistic children I can not stay on the site and pursue working with the children.

Mary Hollingsworth: I'm learning so much about how to present my work and what it means to be viewed by others which helps sharpen my skills and my imagination because most of my writings that you have seen other than the first one "The Loop of Infidelity!" are on the spot writings that popped out of my spirit automatically.

Mary Hollingsworth: I am honored to be apart of this website with the most supportive reviewers. I've been writing for years but never thought that I would be in a light such as this and to me this is a great platform to be on. I never thought that I would be writing and actually get reviews which have been so uplifting. And yes I know that there will reviews that will challenge my work but thats all a part of perfecting me for the greater. Perhaps now I'll get my book out there that I'm sure will help someone and Enlighten someone about being involved or married to a person that is incarcerated. Everything that you see that I have presented other than my very first writing intitled, "The Loop of Infidelity", was written at the spur of the moment. "The Loop ----------- " was written 10 + maybe 15 years ago and as I was going through my memoirs I open my tablet and started reading and I decided to Google poem contest to see if there were any out there and I ran across this site and this is what started my new beginning with writing I haven't written in years and when I say years that means maybe 5 years ballpark guess. But anyways I said in the beginning this website has helped resurrect my thirst and hunger for writing again and I certainly do appreciate my family of viewers and those that would take the time to read my work and give me input on it I am so humbled by this. Thank you Fanstory family.

Mary Hollingsworth: I am a retired black woman who is an Evangelist of 40 plus years and on the dawn of 65 in 4 months. I retired from Lockheed Martin and July of 2016 I was employed there for 32 . I love God, life and people. I have two adult sons. Whom I love love dearly.
I was formerly married for 30 years not all in one chunk to a man of whom I will not name not because I hate him or anything but there may be a legal issue and I don't want to face that. I married my husband four times and with all of his infidelity (which. by the way inspired my intro poem on the loop of infidelity) by his drug use, multi jail times, several lengthy prison terms, I feel as though I really got cheated out of experiencing a real marriage. I believed in him because I loved him so deeply and that's where my love poems get their source of composition.

But now my husband's name is Mr. T., which stands for travel because that is what I have fallen in love with and what I love to do. In the two-and-a-half years that I've been retired I've made 16 trips out of state. I've been given the name Holla by my
Peers, Community and Church, so please adress me as Holla.
