Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allo...more

“You’re doing it again,” he said.
“Doing what?” I asked, wondering if I had done something wrong.
“Melting my heart with your smile,” he said.”

“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Maya Angelou

“Yeah, cause that would be a smart choice. So, I should just forget about the whole lying to me thing when you pronounce you will never do it again?”
“Yes.”
“You’d have a better chance getting a donkey to shit gold.”

Mary Ting Hey Tasha,

All the books I read, I liked so far.... :) Glad I could help :)


message 8: by Tasha

Tasha I just finished reading Fallen. Everyone commented on a better book than that. But I saw that you gave it 5 stars, so I bought it and I could not put it down. I can't wait to finish that series.

A couple of weeks ago I read the River of Time Series and that was really good. Couldn't put those down either.

I saw that you started reading the Embrace Series. I'm going to pick those up after I finish my current book. :)
