Mailman, born in Vermont to a German-American family, is the descendant of a woman who twice stood trial for witchcraft in the Salem witch trials in 1692.
Mailman's debut novel The Witch's Trinity reportedly sold for six-figures. It is set in a medieval German town in 1487 and examines the struggle between Christianity and pagan tradition through the story of a Christian woman on trial for witchcraft.
Critical reception for Mailman's work has been mostly positive, with The Witch's Trinity gaining praise from Marie Claire and Boston.com. The Isle of Man Today criticized The Witch's Trinity, stating that it "is unsophisticated in its good versus evil premise". The novel was a San Francisco Chronicle Notable Book of 2007, and a Bram Stoker Award finalist.
