Writing Projects

My writing projects will take you to the Rocky Mountains and to the city streets of the homeless. To help you stay warm, I am serving virtual hot tea. Care for some lemon and sugar? Perhaps cream?

Here are my recent works:

Catch Your Death
By Mary Vee
YA Mystery Suspense-In progress

The lives of twin sisters take an abrupt turn when one finds an old book in the corner of Granny's attic, the corner mother forbid them to ever go.

By Mary Vee
YA Mystery Suspense-Complete

        Liz Tomlin’s shortcut home through the alley after school introduces her to homeless girls her age. She shares food and chats for the ten minutes they stay. It was a way to help the less fortunate and made her feel good.
On her walk home one day, though, Liz listens to a frantic voice mail from her mother. Someone was trying to kill her parents. Tires squealed in the background. Her father yelled to her mom to destroy the chip in the phone to protect Liz. Mom’s last words were, “Trust no one.”
Desperately wanting to save her parents, she searches her home for clues and finds one torn news clipping on dad’s desk. She is forced to flee when suspicious men appear at the door. There are no extended family members to contact and she refuses to suck her friends into the danger. 
With no safe place to hide, Liz turns to the homeless girls for help. There she hears about a place where she can slip back in time. . Although no one has seen any time-traveler again, rumors say they went back to the most important time for them to right an issue. 
All Liz has to do is find the portal and hope it takes her to the last morning her parents were home. Maybe then she can save them and end this nightmare. 

I know the thoughts I have for you. Thoughts of peace and not evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11

Who Invited Hank? 
By Mary Vee
Women's Fiction - Complete

Sam Windermere, a successful marketing intern, is lured by her parents to leave her hectic Chicago life for one week of relaxing in the Windermere/Tucker family-share lodge. When she arrives, she discovers Hank Tucker attempting to steal her pre-assigned week.

The generation old disagreement between their families over an innocent toy sparks when her parents arrive a few hours later ready to celebrate Christmas and find Tucker there. It blazes out of control when Hank’s parents pay a surprise visit.

Whatever happened to Peace on Earth? Sam is stirred to unite the families but can't do it alone.

Oh, how good and how pleasant it is for the brethren to dwell together in unity. Psalm 133:1

"Who Invited Hank" sounds interesting. :) I used to live in Michigan, way up at the top. I write Christian historical fiction. I've gotten to the "top" at one publishing house, but wasn't chosen. The waiting and wondering gets hard at times.

Thank you, Karen. So, were you still a troll? Or did you live over the bridge? I have lived in both places over the years.

We have many readers join us who enjoy Christian historical fiction. I'm so glad you've joined us. I too, ventured to the top of a publishing house with a YA book….and wasn't chosen because they had just contracted a similar book. I totally understand. Don't let this stop you. Bumps in a road are not roadblocks. I'll be your cheerleader!
