MJ Heiser (aka Mary Johnson Heiser) learned to read at the age of three, started doodling stories at the age of eight, obtained her first typewriter at the age of 12, and finished her first book at the age of 13.
"When I write, I'm liberated. I'm not trapped by my gender, skin color, age, weight, or marital status. The only thing before me is the act of creation; it's all I am, and it's my only purpose."
When she's not busy being so liberated, she's probably working, walking her dogs, planning trips with her loving husband, or trying to not trip over something.
