Mary L. Hamilton writes in two fiction genres--middle grade and adult mystery/suspense, both in with a Christian perspective. Her middle grade novels are set at a Christian youth camp, much like the camp where she grew up in southern Wisconsin. More recently, she has turned to writing adult mysteries under the name M L Hamilton.
She has always enjoyed writing, and recalls writing long letters to friends she'd met at camp and to a favorite cousin. She once wrote a mystery based on a friend's birthday party, and often felt the need to chronicle such experiences as a week-long canoe trip.
When she began writing for publication, Mary initially wrote inspirational articles and a few devotional pieces. She progressed a Christmas play titled, "Homespun Angel," and then turned to writing novels.
Mary is a graduate of two Long Ridge Writers' Group courses and her writing has won awards from ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers' Conference, and Writers on the Storm.
When not writing, Mary enjoys knitting, spending time with her family, and a little amateur photography. You can see some of her work on Instagram where her handle is mlhamiltonauthor.
She and her husband make their home in Texas.
