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

Blackwell series by Alexandrea Weis was amazing so I didn’t expect anything less from Death by the River. I was right. What a ride! Dark, twisted, heart pounding, a mind-blowing novel that will capture you from the beginning until the very last word.

“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.”
Mary Ting, Crossroads

“CLAUDIA: I love you as high as the sky and as deep as the sea.

MICHAEL: Multiply my love by infinity and take it to the depths of forever, and you still have only a glimpse of how much I feel for you. I love you more.”
Mary Ting, Crossroads

“Love is everything when you find it. It can take you places and make you feel like you’ve never felt before. It makes you strong, and at the same time, it can make you feel vulnerable because you give all of yourself completely. Humans are unique because we can feel it and give it.”
Mary Ting, Crossroads

“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.”
Elizabeth J. Kolodziej, Witch Devotions

“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
Mortimer J. Adler

“Taking the safe road is good, but sometimes, you may miss what could be better. I’d rather love hard and get hurt then not really love at all.”
M. Clarke

“I don’t ever pray, but I’m praying now. If God could just give me you, I’ll never ask for anything else. Please come back to me. We’ve only just begun. We can get through this. We’re not broken…this can be fixed. I’ll fix it for us.”

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. :)
