Mary J Hicks writes women's fiction, short stories about farm life and light romance. After a long career as a portrait and commercial photographer, Mary retired from photography to enter the world of make-belief. Making up places and characters to entertain the people out there who, like herself, loves to get lost in a good read.
"Writing is as much fun as reading, maybe more so. When I'm writing, I have control of the elements, who, where, what, when and how. A buffet of excitement, humor, romance, and mystery to choose from. Being short with dark eyes myself, I fight the penchant for making all my female characters tall, blond, and blue-eyed."
In rural Oklahoma surrounded by rolling farm land in the Red River Valley, Mary finds an idea for another story as easy as looking out across the fields and letting her imagination roam free.
