About the Author

Mercer Addison

It Is Never Too Late To Be What You Might Have Been
Quote by author George Elliot

When I was a teenager I became acquainted with the author Frank Yerby and his wonderful historical novels. So instead of reading Nurse Marcy books as one my age was supposed to do, I had my face buried in Yerby's, The Foxes of Harrow. While checking out my stack of books, the town's Liberian would scold me and tell me those stories were for a more mature reader and I shouldn't be reading them. I would lie and tell her they were for my mother.
As life moves on, I, who never thought of being a writer, was reading a historical romance, and thought just maybe I could do this. I also thought this would be easy, write a story, get it published, and retire rich. It doesn't happen that way. I wrote fiction novels, entered contests, and won numerous first place awards. I took workshops on writing, learned all that I could, and joined numerous writing organizations. I stayed the course, and truly believe that age doesn't matter when you really desire something. As an older writer, I take pride in the fact I have published three books.
