    The Prescription of Words -- Write Stuff -- 5/2/2023

    in Writing

    Writers have been given a wonderful gift to create and tell stories that can uplift the soul, encourage the spirit, and inspire the imagination. Some may even consider writers as warriors of ink. But what if we're the doctors -- providing a prescription? It was this idea that brought me to invite author and editor M. A. Malcom onto the show today as we discuss the profound idea that our words can be healing to ourselves and to others. The question is, are you holding back on the prescription?

    Along Came A Writer with Author Mary Hamilton with your host Linda Kozar

    in Books

    Mary L. Hamilton began writing for publication when her children were young. She sold articles to Christian magazines and later wrote a play for her church’s women’s ministry outreach. That play sparked her passion for fiction even as it humbled her to see it performed. She says, “I gave them words in black and white and they put skin and clothes on those words. They brought black and white to life in Technicolor.”
    By that time, her three children had quit taking naps and she couldn’t find a regular time to write when she wasn’t falling asleep. She gave up writing until her youngest was in school and then concentrated on writing fiction.
    Her first novels drew from her experience growing up at a Christian youth camp. The Rustic Knoll Bible Camp series for young teens tells the stories of three hurting teens who bring their “baggage” to camp and find that Jesus can lift their burdens.
    Since then Mary has written novels of mystery and suspense and plans to write more general stories for women.
    She has lived in Texas most of her adult life, and when she’s not writing, she enjoys knitting, playing with her dog, and a little phone photography. Look for her on Instagram or Facebook 
    She loves hearing from readers so feel free to contact her at mary@maryhamiltonbooks.com

    A trip to Ephesus led today's guest on the Sunbury Press Books Show into a metaphysical experience: the mother of Jesus is said to have lived in what is now Turkey after her son's death. While visiting Mary's home, Rhodes was asked by Mary to tell her story.
    Over a ten-year period, Mary told Rhodes her own story, of a lonely childhood, violence against her at the hands of her father, Joseph's devotion and how he saved his family. This interview with Lawrence Knorr discusses Rhodes' ongoing career, and the experience and process that led to the telling of "Mary's Story."
