Mary Fagan is a Ph.D. candidate in English at Princeton University, where she studies Anglo-Italian literary relations in the Renaissance. She holds a B.A. in English and Italian and an M.A. in English from the University of Notre Dame. Learning the Creighton Model has been transformative for Mary’s own health, and through her writing, she hopes to empower women to choose fertility awareness methods that address the root causes of their symptoms and allow them to reclaim vibrant health. In her spare time, Mary can be found dreaming up recipes for her literary food blog, thelibrarykitchen.com (launching July 2021). She and her husband live in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
