We’re so excited to have historical novelist, Suzy Henderson, here on the POTL Blog today. Her debut novel, The Beauty Shop, sounds fantastic and we’re deciding which of us gets to read it first. S…
I live to serve the gods. A servant, a protector, an assassin.
I’ve given my life and my death to that duty, an on-going cycle that I can’t escape. But then I never before had a reason to…
I once existed to serve my God. Until I fell into the arms of true love.
When I found myself alone, I needed a new master, a new purpose for my life. I’ve excelled as an Enforcer, and my duty to the job has always been enough. That was, until she crossed my path…
When Olivia Hardin began having strange movie-like dreams in her teens, she had no choice but to begin putting them to paper. Before long the writing bug had her and she knew she wanted to be a published author. Several rejections plus a little bit of life later, and she was temporarily “cured” of the urge to write. That is until she met a group of talented and fabulous writers who gave her the direction and encouragement she needed to get lost in the words again.
Olivia’s attended three different universities over the years and toyed with majors in Computer Technology, English, History and Geology. Then one day she heard the term road scholar and she knew that was what she wanted to be. Now she “studies” anything and everything just for the joy of learning. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and she’s sometimes accused of being artistic.
A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband, Danny and their puppy, Bonnie.

is the winner of the 2014 LSOR Reviewers Choice Awards. She is married and has three grown children. She loves spending quality time with her eight grandchildren, teaching them the wonderful traditions learned from her heritage. Mary Ann never dreamed of writing children’s books.
The language barrier was a challenge to her writing career. She was born in Sicily. As a young child, she always loved books, even though they were not available. At a young age, she moved to the U.S.A. She attended Cosmetology School and college. She is fluent in the Italian, Sicilian, and English languages. At the age of fifty, she wrote her first story for children. Urged by constant inspiration, she wrote many other stories and poems. One day, she woke up with the realization “a writer was born!” Mary Ann has always kept in close contact with her inner child. She taps in her Sicilian folklore to entertain and cultivate children and the child in all of us. Mary Ann wants to spread the joy of her books to many children all over the world. These are her published books: The Water Lily Fairy
– The Water Lily Fairy at the Ice Cream Palace – La Fata delle Ninfee (The Water Lily Fairy Italian version) – Ants In My Pants – Mommy, Where Does Tiger Live? – Julie and Her Seven Calves – Mouse Goes to the Doctor – The Street Where the Dollar Tree Grew – Fingerprints on the Mirror – La Fata delle Ninfee al Castello del Gelato (The Water Lily Fairy at the Ice Cream Palace Italian version) – Catch the Rainbows, found in Fun & Short Stories Vol. 1. These are her published coloring books: Fingerprints on the Mirror The Coloring Book, The Water Lily Fairy The Coloring Book. Her books will be available in five languages: English, Italian, Sicilian, French, and Spanish. Mary Ann realizes the importance of preserving a language that can forever be forgotten. She is writing books on Sicilian proverbs and Sicilian old sayings. These will be written simultaneously in Sicilian, Italian, and English. Also, she is working on the story, The Molinazzo and Punta Raisi Airport, which will be in Italian, English and Sicilian. More children’s books soon to follow: Footprints on Mommy’s Heart – Formiche Sui Pantaloni (Ants In My Pants Italian version), Catch the Rainbows, and The Polka Dot Pony. Mary Ann reflects her personality in the humorous books of “The Water Lily Fairy” series and in the diversity of her books. She hopes her books will be treasured by many children and bring sunshine into their hearts. Her books are sold online by Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Author House, and world wide. Locally, they are sold at the Book Nook store, in Allen Park, Michigan. Her poems address the current issues of our country and have been published in the UAW Local 387 newspaper, in Michigan. Mary Ann loves God, her family, gardening, traveling, and art.
