Raised in the south, MariaLisa learned about the magic of books at an early age. Every summer, with the help of a gracious librarian who did not believe in age-restricted stacks, she would spend hours in the local library, devouring books of every genre. Self-described as a book-a-holic, she says “I always loved to read, then I discovered writing, and I adored that, too. For reading … if nothing else is available, I’ve been known to read the back of the cereal box.” She still reads voraciously, and always has a few books going in paperback, hardback, or on devices.

Maria Vickers currently lives in St. Louis, MO with her pug, Spencer Tracy. She has always had a passion for writing, and after she became disabled, she decided to use writing as her escape. 

She has learned a lot about life and herself after becoming sick. One of the things she has learned and lives by is, life is about what you make of it. You have to live it to the fullest no matter the circumstances. 
I’ve always loved books. Not only creating stories but reading them as well. Books transport me, and when I was younger, I would run into walls because I refused to put my books down even for a second. Take not, walking while reading is not advised. LOL. 

With my books, I dream of sharing my stories with the world. I want others to be transported or to feel the emotions my characters feel. That is my goal. If I can do that for one person, I succeeded. 

Getting sick changed me and my life, but it also opened doors that I thought were closed. Today, even though I may not be able to do as much as I once could, I still have my mind, and I can write.

What inspired me to write Damage Control
by Eva King

I can confess that I didn’t always want to be a writer. When I was younger, my dream was to be a teacher, to mould young minds and for them to love the classics--Romeo and Juliet, Little Women--as much as I did. But things don’t tend to happen the way you planned.

Even though I’ve always been a reader, I started writing after I read Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer. I was completely captivated by the love story, and when I read how she wrote the book with young children like me, I was inspired. If she could do it, so could I. The only difference was that I didn’t have a college degree.

The first novel I wrote ended up in the bin. I hated the main character, and let’s face it, it was utter crap. But it didn’t stop me. Just imagining my own world, the characters... created a monster in me that needed more. 

I went to the library and borrowed Stephen King’s On Writing, which I ended up buying. Here I learned that he didn’t become a best seller overnight, that he started by writing short stories. So I followed his steps, by writing a couple of stories--not the drinking--which were refused for being “Pulp Fiction”.

I didn’t want to write a classic or a masterpiece. I wanted to write something that I enjoyed reading and hopefully other people would too.

Finally a group of authors in Goodreads joined up and we wrote stories, providing every bit of royalties to charity. I didn’t get my name known or make any money of it,  but I learned a lot from other authors, which I still consider friends.

I started writing Damage Control when I saw the cover of The Times magazine, with Ryan Gosling. It made me wonder who was his first love, crush...that’s how James McNair was born. Out of curiosity.

I can’t say it was easy, it wasn’t. Everyone I spoke to, advised to plan the character, plan the scenarios. But I couldn’t. Planning in advance didn’t work for me.

The story would come to me by sitting in front of the computer, not before.

There were times where I would feel like what I was writing wasn’t worth it. That my lack of a degree showed in my words, so I left it for a while. Hidden in the depths of the computer, gathering fictional dust.

After reading Slammed by Colleen Hoover, she managed to write a whole novel after school clubs. It gave me hope.

So, I revived Damage Control, this time writing Emma’s point of view.

My main problem was writing on a Notebook, I needed to be connected online to be able to use Word. Leaving nighttimes, when everyone at home was asleep, to write.

That’s when I discovered that E L James, the author from Fifty Shades of Grey, wrote her novel on her Blackberry phone. I saved for what seemed like an eternity and bought a smart phone.

Thanks to this, I managed to finish Damage Control on my way to work, typing relentlessly on the phone until it was done.

Now, I’m not saying it wasn’t hard work. Nobody told me that writing a book was going to be easy, but I didn’t imagine it was going to be so hard. I suppose this is why most people call it an accomplishment. To me it was an achievement, a way to show that everything is possible if I worked hard enough.

Now that I’ve finished, I can’t wait to start another one.
