When Mary Wilson was told her first book had too much sex for a fantasy reader and too much paranormal content for the romance reader, she didn’t give up. Instead, she kept submitting, and in December 2002, her first book, Ghost Touch, an erotic paranormal romance, was published by Ellora’s Cave under the pen name Mary Winter. Since then, she’s written over fifty erotic romance novels and novellas. She’s worked with nine publishers, including some of the largest and best in the digital-first publishing industry.
Mary’s extensive knowledge of the new age and metaphysical field has come from a twenty year history of practicing Wicca. She’s currently a dedicant to the Wite Rayvn Metaphysical Church of the Ozarks, an affiliate of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church, one of the oldest Wiccan churches in the US. She’s written extensively on new age and Wiccan topics, with her articles appearing in Circle Network News, New Moon Rising, SageWoman, PagaNet News and other publications. As Mary Caelsto, she’s written numerous metaphysical books and also pens pagan inspirational romances. She is currently a junior at the Woolston-Steen Theological Seminary, where she’s working on her Bachelor’s in Wiccan Theology and clergy training.
She started Jupiter Gardens in 2008, growing it to encompass several imprints and authors. Though Mary Winter has retired (except for special “guest” appearances), Mary continues to write including, as Mary Caelsto and loves to use her knowledge of both the author and publisher sides of the business to help other authors grow.
