About the Author
Author and mouth artist Mary Cox-Bilz had always wanted to write, but spent
most of her younger life doing the things other women did. She went to
college, managed her own business and did evaluation and counseling in the
Maryland Rehabilitation Center to help other physically challenged people
learn to manage their disabilities. Mary was born with Arthrogryposis (ARTH-row-grip-O-sis),
a birth defect that left her a quadriplegic with only 3% use of her left arm
and 7% use of her right. Though, Mary is confined to a motorized wheelchair,
she teaches four writing classes a week for a local college, travels to
speaking engagements, gives telephone and television interviews, and attends
writer’s conferences sponsored by the International Women’s Writing Guild.
Mary uses a mouth stick to type manuscripts on her computer, or surf the
Internet, and does pen and ink drawings, holding the pen in her mouth.
About six months after her husband’s death, Mary gave up her 56 hour a week
telemarketing business, started her first book, and returned to the Eastern
Shore of Maryland to follow her dream of becoming a writer. Since November
of 1998, she has written five books.
A lifelong Christian, Mary is a member of a local United Methodist Church,
but stresses that her writings, while firmly based in Christian faith, are
inter-denominational and suitable reading for any audience.
Author of five books and an accomplished mouth-artist, the college graduate has
completed Bible courses from several Seminaries and Bible Colleges in the US.
However, she is quick to say that "When you sit alone with God at the keyboard,
you learn things that no textbook can teach. Course material has expanded my
knowledge, but being alone with God has expanded my heart."
Mary's books, greeting cards, and artwork are available at her website
and in area bookstores.
Mary welcomes interviews and can be contacted at

It's opened each day.

As I read
through this book
God gently leads
me to look

Some praised God,

Now, the ones

LETTERS IN MY CASKET
2000, White Oaks Creations, Inc., Cartersville, VA & Ebooksonthe.net
I discovered your box of letters in the back room. The stack you began to
write when I was a baby. They were bound by years with rubber bands. Your
desire for me to find them, after the death of you and daddy, was fulfilled.
Memories simmered in my mind. Mother, how many times did you watch me, as a
little kid, march through the house? You never spoiled my fun by telling me
that black women were banned from the ranks. Instead, you and Daddy drilled
in me greatness. Complaining was unwelcome.
YOUR TRUE FRIEND ALWAYS, LOUISA, 2000, White Oaks Creations, Cartersville,
Today every room in our house was raked through. Our things were viciously
ripped apart .The dark hour was without a moon and stars. No dogs were
howling and there was no warm breath. Just cold frozen bodies like stiffened
prey lying in wait for finality.
THE GATE CALLED BEAUTIFUL, 2001, Cambridge Books, Cambridge, MD &
I was born crippled. My arms and legs are deformed. Were you born with
problems? Do you have problems? Will you come with me?
Let's close our eyes, take a deep breath, and say "Good-bye" to our physical
worlds. We're going on a journey to meet some people written about in the
Bible. Along the way I will also introduce you to others not found within
these pages. I saw them in my spirit.
