Marylee MacDonald writes classic short stories that read like mini novels. Tracy Fisher, a reviewer for Readers' Favorite, said this. "I simply cannot get over how fantastic this book was! Anyone who knows me knows that I love short stories in general. Being able to pick up a book and read a complete story as I'm riding the bus to work or sitting in a waiting room for an appointment is simply a delight. But when I started reading BONDS OF LOVE AND BLOOD, I found a completely different experience. I simply could not put this down." When she's not writing, Marylee MacDonald is walking the beach, strolling through a redwood forest, or hiking in the red rocks of Sedona. Website | Facebook | Goodread's Profile | Twitter
