Mary Fairhurst Breen

Mary Fairhurst Breen grew up in the suburbs of Toronto and raised her kids in the city. A translator by training, she spent thirty years in the not-for-profit sector. She also launched her own arts business, a colossally enjoyable and unprofitable venture. Its demise gave her the time to write her family history for her daughters. She began to publish autobiographical stories, and wound up with her first book, Any Kind of Luck at All.
