A bit about me…

My deepest dream is to see stories—mine and others—change your life as they’ve changed mine.

Although I write both non-fiction and fiction, I’m especially fond of the latter because of the power of story. Stories saved me. From the parables of Jesus, to novels like To Kill a Mockingbird and The Book of the Dun Cow, stories swept me away into a world of hope and possibilities.See all my books here.

One thing I’m passionate about is becoming free from the kinds of family secrets that hold us in darkness. If you have a secret like that, why not take the first step toward freedom today? Share your secret anonymously at My Family Secrets.

  1. Hi Mary, you were referred to me by a writer/editor friend. I find you inspiring.

    My deepest dream is to tell my life story – born and raised in China as an unwanted peasant girl … neglected and abused by my own family … experienced several times of near-death experiences … when my own daughter was born, my in-laws pressured me to kill my baby so as to try for a boy …

    I’m hitting a snag in writing my memoir right now – reliving my adult life in China turned out to be even more painful to put into crafted words than my childhood life …

    Hope to get some inspiration/advice from you … I really like your writing world.

    Sincerely,
    Jing Li
    p.s. My miraculous survival is all by God’s grace … I got to know Jesus after I came to America … if not for praying to my savior Jesus to grant me strength … I don’t think I can be strong enough to go through all this …
