Mary L. Ball's Stone of Destiny


Mary L. Ball enjoys weaving together Inspirational Suspense and Mystery Novels blended with romance. 
She is a member of ACFW and lives in North Carolina between the wondrous mountains and beautiful beaches. When Mary isn’t writing or babysitting her grandsons, she enjoys supporting her husband’s ministry, fishing, hiking or reading a good novel. I had the pleasure of meeting Mary in person a few years ago.
Welcome, Mary and congratulations on the new book!

Thanks, Susan.

How many books have you written?

I have three books out. Escape to Big Fork Lake, my debut novel and Stone of Destiny –my newest released. Prism Book Group publishes those novels. I also have a non-fiction eBook titled The Writers Handbook of Online Promotion

Give a short synop of your most recently published book.

Can a mysterious ring change lives?

Taylor Harrison has given up on everything but her work. The youngest CEO of Mugful’s Beverage Company, her life is complete. That is, until her grandmother asks her to oversee renovations at the family home and find the missing heirloom.
First contact with what she believes is an insignificant ring, lost for fifty years, sends her life spinning. Taylor experiences strange dreams. Feelings surface; she doesn't understand; thoughts that should remain unspoken, voiced. 
Taylor’s emotional journey begins, testing a heart as cold as the ring itself.
Is this a fairy-tale or her soul, reaching out for a life she can only find through faith and trust in God?  

How much of yourself is hidden in the characters in the book?

This book is totally fiction except for the faith aspect, that part I draw from myself.  
  
What challenges did you face while writing this book?

Some may see this novel as a bit odd for an Inspirational read, but I wanted readers to get a sense of the spiritual power attained by faith and prayer. It was a challenge for me to bring that knowledge out and have the book focusing on dreams and visions.   
   
Can you tell us your future writing goals/projects?

I’m working on a fiction novel about a man and his struggle to find the strength to fight alcoholism. 

Where can folks learn more about your books and events?
