Mary North Allen When Mary North Allen passed away in 2011, she left behind dozens of versions of her memoir, "Falling Light and Waters Turning: Adventures  in Being Human" as well as hundreds of  photographs of Falling LIghttrees, people, and her signature color photos. She also left boxes of old family papers, some dating back to the 1600's.

Mary North Allen was a pre-med student who loved biology.  Later she became a professional nature photographer and photography teacher. She had a life-long love affair with trees.

Her children were called to share their mother's beautiful words and pictures with the world.  It was not an easy job, but the result is both beautiful and inspiring.  Today on Writers' Voices we speak with Mary's daughter Katy Allen, who did the bulk of the work to produce this book, and her son, former Fairfielder Tom Allen.
