Maralys Wills is the author of a dozen published books in a variety of genres, including the techno-thriller Scatterpath, of which The New York Times said, “Her cockpit sequences all but put the reader at the controls,” and four romance novels. Her nonfiction includes the critically lauded Higher Than Eagles: The Tragedy and Triumph of an American Family, which chronicles the loss of two of her sons and has been optioned for film five times, and Save My Son: A Mother and a Sheriff Unite to Reclaim the Lives of Addicted Offenders (with Michael Carona). Maralys’s other titles include A Clown in the Trunk, a sequel of sorts to her light-hearted memoir, A Circus Without Elephants, and Damn the Rejections: Full Speed Ahead. Her latest titles include Buy a Trumpet and Blow Your Own Horn! Turning Books into Bucks (Stephens Press) and a memoir, The Tail on my Mother’s Kite (Lemon Lane Press).
