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.

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. Tired of the latest celebrity and their non-problem, problems. I don’t want to write another few paragraphs about forgiveness or self-awareness…. Read More

by Mary J. Williams As human beings, one of the greatest gifts we were given is the power to choose the course of our actions. In simple terms, when you leave the house, do you turn right, or left? Your choice. Your free will. The same ability to decide which way to turn applies in… Read More

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
