Mary A. Adair is an International award-winning author of Native American Romance.




Mary's works include Passion's Vision, Raven's Passion and Passion's Price in her Passion Series. All three have been on Amazon's list for best-selling Native American Romance. Mary did extensive research on several Native American tribes in the time period of her books. One of her many sources for learning about the rich Native American culture of that time period was a book written in the mid. 1700s by one of her husband's ancestors, James Adair.

Mary has also written the first book in a YA Fantasy Series which can be enjoyed by any age lover of Fantasy

I try to never beat myself up when I get stuck. When I have writer's block, I take a deep breath and give myself permission to take a break. I take time to count all my blessings and as much time as I need to appreciate each one. When the time is right, the story begins to flow. (less)

I truly enjoy receiving feedback from my readers. I think it helps me become a better story teller. I, of course, knew their story but had thought it was too much to add when writing Passion's Price. So, I guess you could say, I wrote Raven's Passion by request. (less)

HOW I WRITE MY NOVELS: KNOW THE ENDING FIRST



By Mary Adair

To begin writing without an idea of the ending of my story is like driving on a deserted road at night in a car with no headlights. Knowing how my novel will end helps me remain focused throughout the writing process. Now, my ending doesn’t have to be etched in stone, but I should have some idea of the ending. However, using an ending for an ending’s sake would undermine my proces... Read more of this blog post »
