Welcome to

Mary Gehman's site 

I hope you'll stay and browse through my bio, become familiar with the books I've written and the projects I'm working on. Feel free to contact me here or on Facebook..


Why a website for Mary Gehman?

For  30 years I have been known as a scholar and writer on historic topics about Louisiana, including a concentration on Creoles, free people of color and women's history.  

Until August 2014 I was owner of Margaret Media, Inc., a publishing company specializing in Louisiana authors and Louisiana topics. Since selling the press, my time is now  spent on my own writing and research projects. This site is for my readers, friends and colleagues to keep in touch, so please do! 

I am currently running my new publishing company, Dville Press, which can be found on Facebook, and soon on it's own website.
