About the Author

Mary Burk has been walking the stairways of San Francisco since the 1980s. While searching the city and its hills, Mary discovered Adah Bakalinsky's book and quickly fell in love with Adah's unique way of bringing the city to life. Mary and Adah first met at a book event for the fourth edition of Stairway Walks at the San Francisco Main Public Library. The two became fast friends, bonding through a deep interest in exploring the city on foot. Adah shared with Mary how every walk has its own rhythm, and the two began improvising walks together from there. In the ninth edition, Mary continues the writing, and the two continue walking the routes together. When not out walking, Mary works as a software consultant and enjoys swimming and cooking. She shares a home with her husband, her two cats, and their 15-year-old catfish.
