“A teacher beyond compare, what Maralys doesn’t know about writing, hasn’t been written. If you are looking to make the leap from amateur to published author, then Marlays Wills will take you there.”

— Sandy Novy Chvostal
Author, 9 books

Maralys Wills has published twelve books, raised six children, and “lucked into the world’s best teaching job.” Educated at Stanford and UCLA, she teaches novel-writing on the college level, and in 2000 was named Teacher of the Year. Her most challenging project, a poignant memoir titled Higher Than Eagles, became her greatest triumph, garnering excellent reviews and five movie options. She lives and writes in Santa Ana, California.

Wills considers public speaking the dessert for all the hard work of writing, and relishes every moment spent with a receptive audience. She speaks on a range of topics: whether discussing writing advice, the excitement and perils of being an author, or ‘Making Your Own Luck’, Wills incorporates both solid tips and, as always, a fresh sense of humor.
