M. L. Doyle has served in the U.S. Army at home and abroad for more than three decades as both a soldier and civilian and calls on those experiences in much of her writing. The Master Sergeant Harper mystery series has earned numerous awards and five star reviews from readers who enjoy a strong female lead in a noir mystery which happens to involve military life. Each book in the three-book series features a location in which Mary served in uniform. The first book, The Peacekeeper’s Photograph, was penned based on experiences while deployed to the peacekeeping mission in Bosnia.

Mary is the co-author of two memoirs; A Promise Fulfilled; the story of a Wife and Mother, Soldier and General Officer (Jan. 2013) and the memoir, I’m Still Standing: From Captive U.S. Soldier to Free Citizen—My Journey Home (Touchstone, 2010), which was nominated for an NAACP Image award.

Mary is also the author of several novellas spanning genres from romance to mystery and is currently at work on an urban fantasy series.
