Living in Ireland, Mary Elizabeth Coen is a former Home Economics teacher and lifestyle journalist. Mary runs a website called Goddess MECA which stands for Mary Elizabeth Coen Assists the Goddess in every woman through sharing her love of cookery fashion and mythology.
Though Mary always dreamed of being a writer, she took a rather circuitous route getting to it. One could say she has enjoyed several incarnations in this lifetime from home economics teacher to fashion editor of a magazine, along with being mother to three wonderful children: Mark, Janet and Emily. Due to demand from clients, she opened her own Public Relations consultancy firm specializing in fashion; -the dream job for a fashionista, availing of great discounts on wonderful shoes and vintage clothing!
Sadly, the dream job was not meant to last. In 2004, Mary’s health deteriorated and as a result, work had to take a back seat. During this time, she became interested in holistic medicine, personal development and writing in an attempt to cope with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Mary completed several creative writing courses and developed a passion for mythology, philosophy and the study of ancient spiritual traditions. As a spiritual seeker, she traveled to Mayan sites in Mexico, visited a famous healer’s ashram in Brazil and undertook a shamanic journey through Peru.
Mary is an avid nature and animal lover. Her passions are cooking for friends and family, travel and dance.
