Mary Harvey is a native of Chicago, Ill., where she graduated from St. Xavier University with a BA in literature. She was on the writing staff of her high school and college newspapers, which was a step up from having to deliver them.

The South Sider now lives on Chicago's North Side with a beautiful Jewish woman. She gets most of her exercise jumping to conclusions but will fight tooth and nail for her beliefs, which is that graphic art storytelling is a legitimate medium unto itself.
