Meet The Waltons star Mary McDonough at Waterstones MK next week

Star of TVs The Waltons, Mary McDonough is flying in from the U.S. and will be signing three of her books Lessons from the Mountain, The House on Honeysuckle Lane and One Year  at WaterstonesMK (in intu Milton Keynes) this coming Wednesday (April 26) from 12.30pm.

Mary has acted since the age of nine, and has a recurring role on The New Adventures of Old Christine.

She has guest starred on Will and Grace, ER, Boston Legal, the West Wing and dozens of other episodics. In 2007, she starred in the made for television movie, Christmas at Cadillac Jack's.

Mary is best known for her portrayal of middle daughter Erin Walton on TV classic The Waltons, and it is therefore fitting that 'Lessons from the Mountain' shares her story of growing up as a child star and how she reinvented herself after the show’s long run finally ended.

The book gives readers an intimate look behind the scenes of one of the most endearing and enduring shows of all time, and reveals an inspiring story of challenges and personal triumph.

One Year is a heartfelt story set in a picturesque small town in Virginia, portraying three generations of women in a modern Irish-American family as they navigate marriage, motherhood, and independence. . .

The House on Honeysuckle Lane is a story of holiday and homecoming, as three siblings gather for a Christmas that brings unexpected gifts.

Mary will bring a special guest to the signing too - actress Michael Learned, better known as Mama Walton from The Waltons.
