About the Author

M.L. Harris became interested in writing at an early age, after reading the works of Mark Twain; and 'The Odyssey' by Homer. But he put that dream on the back shelf, in order to pursue sports in high school and college.

He received a football scholarship to a small college in Mexico. One day at practice, Harris took his helmet off and started walking to the locker room. The coach yelled: "hey Harris, get back here. Practice isn't over until I say it's over."

He kept walking. The coach followed him inside, to see Harris taking off his practice uniform. He said, "son what in the hell do you think you're doing. Get back out there on the practice field."

Harris looked at the coach and shook his head. "No coach! I'm done! I've been playing organized football since the fourth grade. I made a deal with myself, that when it was no longer fun, I'd quit. So today I quit!"

The coach looked at him with a puzzled look. "But you have a scholarship, are you going to walk away from that?" Harris nodded and said, "I guess so coach."

His football career ended that day. The same year, at the same college, he wrote his first book, a novella, which no longer exists. The manuscript was burned by him, because his fiancée thought the main character, who had sex with a blond - was him.

"Never mind!" He said, as he shrugged his shoulders. "I'll write another one." He kept his promise. He's written and published thirteen novels and two fiction. When asked what writing meant to him he said, "writing to me is like being married and having a mistress. One has to get a job to pay the bills. Because writing doesn't pay the bills until you build a sizeable readership. That job represents the marriage. Writing is the mistress. It's more exciting to be with the mistress."
