An average middle-class Italian-American, Mary Ann Barrucco was born and bred in Brooklyn, New York where she attended and graduated Lafayette High School. Her mother passed away 2 days later from pancreatic cancer. A few months later Mary Ann met her husband, Eddie. After three years of dating, they married. Mary Ann had the wedding of her dreams and excitedly looked forward to her new life.
Mary Ann's dream for the future became a nightmare when her new husband's drinking addiction began spiraling out of control with no intent of stopping. Her mounting feelings of helplessness led her to Alanon where she learnt the full impact of the disease and how her angry outbursts contributed to his weakness and made her a victim. Her struggles continued until she escaped into the world of compulsive gambling. The icing on the cake came when her husband, Eddie, suffered from a heart disease. This resulted in a neccsaary heart transplant.
Mary Ann has shown such courage and strength throughout her ordeal. She is one of the longest member of Gamblers Anonymous in the New York Area of twenty-two years.
Nominated in Who's Who of American Woman in 2004, she wrote her first book, Hi, My Name Is Mary Ann because she wanted to have readers know there is always hope. Mary Ann has published Remember Me, a sequel to Hi, My Name Is Mary Ann.

“I am not an armchair gardener. For the last forty years of my life I have broken my back, my fingernails and sometimes my heart in the practical pursuit of my favourite occupation”. - Vita Sackville West
Ann Chapman is a celebrated rosarian from New Zealand who is the author of several books on roses including "Women In My Rose Garden". About 20 years ago, she and her husband purchased Trinity Farm that they transformed into the largest organic, no spray rose gardens in New Zealand with over 1500 roses under cultivation.
Many of our best-loved heritage roses are named after women and in Ann Chapman book "The Women In My Rose Garden" she explores the lives and stories behind the evocative names. We may be familiar with Mary Queen of Scots, Amy Robsart and Jeanne d'Arc, but who were Adelaide d'Orléans, Nancy Steen and Nur Mahal? Among the 35 women described here are serene queens, duchesses and aristocrats, courageous heroines and pioneers, as well as the passionate gardeners who contributed much to the cultivation and preservation of the roses named for each one.
