Interview With Author Mary Ann Barrucco



What type of books do you write? Both of my books are non-fiction.  My first book Hi, my name is Mary Ann is the story of my husband and I getting married at the age of 22 with high hopes for the future.  Instead my husband became an abusive alcoholic that drove me crazy. So I escaped into a world of gambling. The next thing I knew i was now a Compulsive Gambler in deep debt and nowhere to run.  I was going to kill myself until I found Gamblers Anonymous and got help.  I am a member of Gamblers Anonymous now for 22 years.  The icing on the cake was when my husband got sick with a heart disease that required him to need a heart transplant or die. Somehow we came out of it with ultimate triumph

What is your newest book about?  My newest book Remember Me should be coming out soon is a sequel to Hi, my name is Mary Ann. It describes how I go crazy when Eddie passes away.  I relieve the 11 good years Eddie had with his new heart. But after his death I bring in memorable charters and colorful language as the fight over the estate takes place.

What inspired you to write it? My heart doctor suggested me to write about the whole experience that we had been hoping we could help others know they are not alone.  There really is help out there.

What is writing process like for you? I found the writing very easy because I was telling my own story and every word was with truth and conviction It was also a healing process for me.

What did you do before becoming an author? I work for the Department of Finance in the city of New York.

How does it feel to be a published author? It feels wonderful.  Sometimes I think did I really write that book? I know now I can do anything if I put my mind to it.

Any advice for struggling writers? Don't ever give up. If writing is your dream just keep going.

Where do you see book publishing heading? My dream is that someday someone will tell me my book or books together would make a good movie or even a Broadway play
