A. M. Foley, a native of Washington, DC, fled city life to settle on Elliott Island, Maryland thirty-some years ago. Since joining the Writers Bloc, she has produced five non-fiction books.
Foley authored the biography Having My Say: Conversations with Chesapeake Bay Waterman Wylie “Gator” Abbott, described by Baltimore Magazine as “vital to any bookshelf dedicated to Maryland history.” The book appears on the short list of histories recommended by the Chesapeake Bay Program, as does her earlier book, Elliott’s Island: The Land That Time Forgot. With fellow-Bloc member Gloria Johnson, she co-authored two pictorial histories: Cambridge and Dorchester County, both regional bestsellers.
Two short stories, the first of Foley’s fiction, have been published in Writers Bloc anthologies. She currently works on a collection of related stories to be published by Dogwood Ridge Books.
Her books are available at independent and chain bookstores around Chesapeake Bay and online. Personalized and/or signed copies are available at email@example.com
