Bio: Mary Adair has been a member of Romance Writers of America for many years. Passion's Vision was awarded the Betty Hendrick's Award for Most Publishable Romance at the Dallas Writers Association Convention in 1994. It is the second book Mary has written, the first to be published, and there are three others in the making. Like all writers, writing is a passion with Mary. Mary says she wakes up thinking about her characters, talks about them to her husband for hours on end, and dreams about them at night. Mary has raised her family, lives a very happy and fulfilled life in the realms of reality, and now is ready to pursue her long time dream of telling stories. And, Mary recently moved to the perfect place to do that. She is living very happily in beautiful rural Oklahoma with her husband of 31 years, who is also her Knight in Shining Armor, Prince Charming, and Warrior Hero all rolled into one. Their kingdom is filled with an assortment of loyal subjects which includes four Italian Greyhounds, four cats, a cockatiel, and of course there are the neighboring raccoons, opossums, squirrels, brown bears, eagles and bats. Mary finds this the perfect place to sit on her porch, coffee mug in hand, with her husband's arm about her shoulders as they watch the morning mist rise up through the mountaintops and talk about all the possible adventures her characters could find themselves in.
