About Mary J Hicks

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.

Books Beads and Baubles is a cute short story. The elderly bookstore owners were vividly portrayed. This is a light mystery and it was entertaining. I've enjoyed all of the short stories by Mary J Hicks.

The Summer Border is the kind of book you can curl up with in the porch swing on a hot summer afternoon sipping a tall glass of sweet ice tea. Mary Hicks carries us away to a mountain cabin and a romance we all dream of. Sweet, refreshing, outstanding! A must read for the summer!
