Mary Lamphere, born, raised, educated and residing in northern Illinois, is a creator. She is a writer, designer, artist, parent, and grandparent. (Yes, she takes credit for her part in those creations, as well.)
She is a lover of words--both visual and aural, and of people, places, things, images, and beauty in all of its forms. She's also an appreciator of the dark side of those things.
I believe there is a fine line between truth and absurdity.
POCKET MONEY is her first published novel.

I’ve been away four years. A college lifetime. Heading back to meet up with my high school buddies, I wonder how I got to twenty-two with them still in my life. I wonder if they even are. Does today count? Initial nostalgia aside, do we know each other? Do they think they know me? Did they ever really know me? Things have changed. “The guys hanging out, like old times,” they said. What’s the worst that could happen?
And so begins Pocket Money, a day in the life of four friends who revel in their shared histories as they come to terms with where they are now, how they got there and where they're going. Life changing secrets are revealed when four old friends reunite for a day of memories...and murder.
