Mary Stobie is the buckle winning author of the humorous memoir You Fall Off, You Get Back On. Her newspaper columns are syndicated by Colorado Community Media. You will often find her telling stories at The Mercury Café, Denver Public Library, private events and Book Clubs.
When her memoir came out in late 2014, Stu Bykofsky, columnist at Philadelphia Daily News wrote about Mary Stobie, “Artist, photographer, rodeo cowgirl, actress, arm candy for Academy Award winning director John Avildsen, enabler of disorder, science failure, successful mom—Mary Stobie is a gal you want to meet.”
Her memoir, is part Annie Oakley, part Erma Bombeck and 100% original. Rocky Mountain writer Stobie terms her work a “patchwork memoir.” Patchwork it is—breezy and wide-ranging personal essays and columns deftly woven into a funny and cohesive fabric. Recounted in appealing short takes, Stobie’s entertaining experiences include stints as a young rodeo champion and a Hollywood ingénue. As a starlet she had surprising encounters with Hollywood A-listers like Warren Beatty and George C. Scott, and Clint Eastwood before she settled into the writing and family life back on the Colorado range.
Even in suburbia, for Stobie every day is an adventure (or misadventure), and every escapade is a great excuse for a joke and even a life lesson or two.
