Digital Short Story 2019 spotlight: Andrew Taylor’s “With Mary Gone”

“With Mary Gone” is a true story about my family’s struggle to feel at home while dealing with the ever-present threat of a violent and unpredictable neighbor.

Andrew is a comic book artist, husband and stay-at-home dad from Glenside, Pennsylvania. For the last six years, Andrew has created comic books during his daughters’ naps and preschool hours. So far these include, a webcomic, two comic series and several short stories and mini comics with various collaborators, all while keeping a small child alive until kindergarten. With the birth of his second daughter last March, he is now going to have to figure out how to do that all over again. Find his work at and on social media @PotentialComic.
