About Mary Green

If someone had told her when she was in law school in Brooklyn that one day she’d be the editor in chief of a book-publishing company on the West Coast, Mary Green says she’d have laughed out loud. Although she never envisioned this career path, she says her nearly 25 years in publishing have been far more fun than her brief stint in the legal world. Mary’s job consists of reading, writing, talking with authors, looking at quilts and lots of other handmade items, planning Martingale’s publishing program, and collaborating with the best group of coworkers she’s ever known. A design contributor to Martingale books including Sew the Perfect Gift and A Baker’s Dozen, Mary admits she doesn’t do a lot of designing herself. After all, she has access to hundreds of books containing thousands of patterns from talented designers. It’s an embarrassment of riches she’s happy to take advantage of!
