"I had already written about forty books by the time Amazing Grace
was published in 1991, but it is fair to say that it was Grace who changed my life. I roughed out the story sitting in a health club in London, wearing a towel. I was far away from the doorbell's ring or the phone," says Mary Hoffman.
Mary Hoffman was born in Eastleigh, Hampshire, Great Britain on April 20th. Ms. Hoffman and her husband live in London. They have three daughters.

Nancy No-Size and Henry's Baby.
