LET’S TALK ABOUT …COOKIES

on June 29, 2018

by Mary J. Williams I thought a lot about my blog this month, and quite frankly, my mind went blank. I’m tired. Tired of rude, often nasty, shouting politicians. Tired of social media drama.

It Has Always Been My Dream To Write A Book

And I always knew it would be a romance novel. When I was a teenager I assumed my book would have a historical setting, those were the kinds of stories I liked best, I even grew my hair long so I could be like the heroines in my favorite stories. But now I see myself and my books in the present dealing with the joys and sorrows of our modern world. Harper Falls is a place my imagination dreamed up, but it is based in reality. I grew up in Washington State and went to school in a small town on the Columbia River. Harper Falls is that town but an idealized version. I hope you enjoy reading about the town and the characters.

And as much as I enjoyed telling their stories, these books are not the end of my dream but the beginning.

LET’S TALK ABOUT…HAPPY

on February 20, 2018

Warning. Today is more of a blurb than a blog. Short, to the point. Just something I wanted to share. I want to be happy. Doesn’t everyone? Heck, according to the Declaration of Independence—United States of America edition—one of our inalienable rights is the right to happiness. Or rather, the pursuit of happiness. You have… Read More

LET’S TALK ABOUT…FINDING YOUR VOICE

on October 20, 2017

When I first decided to make my October blog about finding your voice, I planned to come at the subject from a writer’s perspective. Find Your Voice. In other words, what is your style? Punctuation. Syntax. Character development. Something that makes you stand out. A unique voice in a sea of millions. However, as the… Read More

LET’S TALK ABOUT…FALL (ING INTO LOVE)

on September 21, 2017

When I was strictly a reader, before I wrote my first novel, I can’t remember if my taste in books changed with the seasons. As summer leaves turned a burnished fall reddish orange, did I suddenly long for ghoulish ghost stories? Did my mind wander toward frosty mornings and wish for a cozy holiday romance… Read More
