Mollie Cox Bryan, Research Manager
Mollie has spent three decades in the media industry (though yes, we agree, she looks like she’s 30), serving both alternately and simultaneously as a writer, designer, editor, and production manager, all of which makes her well-suited to the multi-tasking mayhem of Write Well Media.
Unlike the rest of the team here, however, she’s actually somewhat famous...as a mystery novelist. Mollie is author of the Agatha-Award nominated Cumberland Creek Mysteries (Kensington Publishing), which are scrapbooking-themed mystery novels set in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, where she lives. Watch for publication of her Cora Craft Mysteries beginning in August 2016. She is currently working on a new book, Memory of Light, the story of Civil War Medal of Honor Awardee Jefferson Coates.
Before she began writing novels about murder and crafty mayhem, Mollie was a freelance writer specializing in food and family. She’s the author of the best selling cookbook Mrs. Rowe’s Little Book of Southern Pie (Random House, 2009) and its predecessor Mrs. Rowe’s Restaurant Cookbook: A Lifetime of Recipes from the Shenandoah Valley (Ten Speed, 2006).
Her cookbook writing led her to a passion for storytelling through food. Her food-themed essays and articles have been published in NPR’s Kitchen Window, The Christian Science Monitor, Grit, and Relish Magazine.
At Write Well Media, food is more frequently eaten than written about, but Mollie fits right in with this crowd of too tightly wound creatives, making sure everyone meets deadline and has their facts straight. Thus far, she’s kept (wisely) quiet on the Oxford comma….
