Mary Haylock

Mary Haylock is a wry chronicler of the joy, pain and loss that comprise the sum of our lives. She writes humanely and intelligently of the quotidian moments that slowly accrete to form a life, fully lived. She combines frankness, a jigger of self-deprecation and great heart into a satisfying, maple leaf-flavored cocktail. Had Erma Bombeck channeled a teasing glimpse of Alice Munro with echoes of Nora Ephron, she would have been known as Mary Haylock. ~ David Hardin, author of ‘Dreaming Bob Wills’ and ‘A Ruinous Thirst’


Moments on a Staircase is truly a wonderful read.  It tugs at the heartstrings and warms the soul. This poignant  memoir, laced with humor, joy, love, loss and pain weaves a lovely human tapestry throughout the pages   As I read the book I found myself laughing out loud in sections and shedding a tear in others. Haylock is a master of blending simplicity and eloquence into a potpourri of emotional strength and fragility to satisfy both the rebellious and the tender heart. ~ Candice James, Poet Laureate Emerita, New Westminster, BC CANADA
