Available on Amazon.com on August 1, 2014 in e-book and paperback—“When the Shoe Fits…Essays of Love, Life and Second Chances,” a “best of” collection of essays by award-winning Wisconsin author and attorney Mary T. Wagner.
When a hard fall from a tall horse landed Wagner—then a freelance writer and a soccer mom with four young children—in a body cast for three months, she didn’t take it as a sign to ease back on the throttle. Instead, she changed careers, went to law school, took a job as a criminal prosecutor, and bought her first pair of spike heels. And THEN she started writing again. Wagner’s first three collections of her slice-of-life essays—“Running with Stilettos,” “Heck on Heels” and “Fabulous in Flats”—earned numerous national and regional awards, including an Indie Excellence Award and a silver IPPY. Both “Heck on Heels” and “Fabulous in Flats” were finalists in ForeWord Review’s BOTY Awards. Her legal experience has been similarly eclectic, ranging from handling speeding tickets to arguing cases before the Wisconsin Supreme Court…sometimes in the same week!
In essays here ranging widely from “Turbo Dating—the Year in Review” to “Riding Pillion,” “The Limoncello Diaries” and “Angels in the Snow,” Wagner’s signature writing style combines humor, insight, and grace under pressure. Whether reflecting on subjects as diverse as motherhood, the view from the back of a Harley, the impending loss of a parent or the therapeutic effects of a post-divorce bonfire, Wagner’s inspiring and empowering essays resonate with universal experiences of love, life and reinvention. A must-read for any woman who’s asked herself “is there at least one more goal I can shoot for?”… and then answered “YES!!”

Read information about the author"It's never too late to make mid-course corrections!" That's the mantra of Wisconsin author and photographer Mary T. Wagner, who has been described as the Midwest's answer to Carrie Bradshaw and favorably compared to humorist Erma Bombeck...but "in sexier shoes."
Wagner is a former newspaper and magazine journalist who changed careers at forty after a serious accident, going to law school and then becoming a criminal prosecutor. After living for several decades in rural Wisconsin, drawing inspiration for writing from daily walks in the countryside with her dog and cat, she has now settled in "coastal Wisconsin," close to Lake Michigan where the sight of the horizon on the lake never fails to inspire.
Despite the career shift to law, Wagner never could step away from the keyboard entirely, and since returning to writing has published three award-winning essay collections: Running with Stilettos, Heck on Heels and Fabulous in Flats.
Featuring ordinary moments limned with extraordinary insight, Wagner's slice-of-life essays first appeared on her signature blog, "Running with Stilettos," as well as other websites. Life experience includes being the mother of four, and a former girl scout troop leader, truck stop waitress, office temp, judicial clerk, and radio talk show host. She counts both wearing spike heels and learning to use a cordless drill and chainsaw among her "late blooming" discoveries, and would be hard pressed to surrender either her favorite stilettos or her power tools.
