Mary Naples, MA
After earning a BS in psychology from Arizona State University, Mary Naples pursued a successful career in high tech sales and recruiting before resigning in order to fulfill a lifelong dream of continuing her education. Long-fascinated with the ancient world, Mary went on to earn an MA in Humanities with an emphasis in Women’s Studies from Dominican University of California. While at Dominican, she discovered a deep enthusiasm for unearthing stories about ancient women that have long ago been buried.
Since graduating in 2013, she has been a contributing writer for Classical Wisdom Weekly— an online periodical about the classical world and began writing for another online periodical, Ancient Origins, in 2018. In addition to writing, Mary has also given several webinars for both publications—you can see her webinars and read her published articles on this website. She is now working on an eBook about how women found empowerment in ancient Greece and a children’s book about Cleopatra —- both of which are expected to be released in late 22/early 23.
Mary lives in Sausalito, California with her husband, Tim and cat, Maddie. There she has a collection of books on the classical world, a garden with a 5-circuit stone labyrinth and a Greek-styled temple/gazebo.
