Mary Martin has a doctorate in Applied Linguistics from New York University that informs her obsession with the language we use regarding animals. She blogs, daily, at animalperson.net, and for cash she ghostwrites and edits nonfiction books. She also serves on several nonprofit boards.
She is a vegan who stopped eating meat at age 15 and plastered her family's kitchen with photos of veal calves in crates to coax them to join her. She failed. On the upside, her husband is now a vegan, as are her two rescue greyhounds, Violet Rays and Charles Hobson Booger, III. Her cat, Emily Fokker, instituted a hunger strike upon being presented with tasty vegan morsels, and to this day refuses to eschew fish.
Mary hopes that in her lifetime greyhound racing will be banned, and animal welfare people and animal rights people will stop arguing.
