Marcus Williams

Independent Author

Marcus has written thousands of pages of law enforcement reports describing the details of cyber crimes, sexual assaults, drug trafficking, and murders during his career as a federal agent. He now uses all of that "practice" to tell stories that excite, entertain, and engage. While life doesn't always have a happy ending, there is always hope found in family, friendships, and kindness.


He and his family have lived all over the world and love exploring and making friends wherever they find themselves: from California's high desert, to Sicily's historical marvels, to the beaches of the mid-Atlantic coast, to the rain soaked forests of Washington, to the base of Mt Fuji, and to the majestic Rocky Mountains. The world is full of mystery and untold stories.

The Gifted - Vincent's mom said he was special, that he had a gift. But that's not what the kids at school called it; they called him a freak. All he ever wanted was to be normal, to fit in. So, he made the decision long ago to bury the gift deep down where no one could ever find it. Vincent was just going to work, living the most normal life possible, when, without warning, a beautiful and mysterious woman walked into his life and blew his carefully constructed world of "normal" into a thousand pieces. With love and patience, she helped him understand his special gift in a way he never thought possible.

Now she is gone and he can't explain why he is driven to board a bus bound for the west. That bus full of strangers will bring clarity once again and change his life forever.

Snow Falls Soft on the Hidden ValleyClancy Peters was only hoping to strike some luck on a newly purchased mine claim outside of Buena Vista, but the town, or more particularly its tyrant, Dane Sampson, had other plans for the lone cowboy. On the run from a mob of Sampson’s goons, Peters finds a hidden valley deep in the mountains, where the MacNeil family, also victim to Sampson’s greed, has built the foundations of a peaceful life. This peace is shattered, however, as Sampson and his men become hungry for more land, hidden conquistador treasure, and revenge. As winter descends on the mountain, Peters and the MacNeils must prepare to defend the hidden valley—and their lives.

"My father had been a hard man, but he taught me a learned man was never without hope or opportunity." Clancy Peters
