Mary L. Ball
Mary L. Ball is a multi-published Christian author. She resides in the heart of North Carolina. When she isn't working on her latest story, she enjoys fishing, reading, and ministering in song with her husband. Her books are about small-town romance, suspense, and mystery, influenced by the grace of Jesus Christ.  

Welcome, Mary. Do you type or write by hand? Computer? Typewriter? Legal pad?
I use my desktop and laptop. Since everything is done online, I can’t imagine using pen and paper to write. 

What’s one genre you have never written, and probably never will?
Fantasy and Sci-Fi. 

What takeaway value do you hope your readers receive after reading your book?
I hope Sunny’s Dream encourages each of us to exercise patience, knowing that no one is perfect and preconceived ideas about others can change.   

Please tell us a little about your novel, Sunny’s Dream.
Sunny Kast spends her week fighting cyber-crime
and dreaming of her prince charming.

When a man walks into Celestial Investigations and introduces himself as Trouble, she’s sure he’s not her prince and positive that he lives up to his name.
After Max Trouble finds an important document, his life gets complicated with the know-it-all P.I. hired to track down its owner.

Sunny and Max’s relationship grows. She’s optimistic that he may be her prince charming, but after her car is sabotaged, and she’s almost killed, Max’s chauvinist ideas of a female investigator surface.

Will she see God’s perfect plan or a not-so-perfect relationship?

Sunny’s Dream, Celestial Investigation, book one. A Christian romantic suspense based on three sisters. Their P.I. skills come in handy in the quaint town of Mercy, North Carolina, a place where romance and mystery unite.
