These enchanting, semi-autobiographical stories and essays - unfolding across the rich tapestry of the American South - chart the struggles, triumphs, ecstasies, and tragedies of a soul on the edge of the despair-laden abyss of heart-rending loneliness that is at the core of all our existences. Unlike the rest of us, Ms. Heather Leigh Williams braves the breach; the question is, are we courageous enough to follow as Ms. Williams besieges and ultimately reigns ascendant over her own personal Harfleur? Denied a mother's love, Ms. Williams's narrator is wrapped in the wonderful embrace of her grandmother, a truly benevolent soul, and in the moist earth of the lush and savage Southern gardens she passionately cultivates. Lush and savage - beauty and pain - passion - words that perhaps are the best way to describe both the stories in Never Needed Saving and the corporeal form of Ms. Heather Leigh Williams herself!

Teenagers Emma and Brody are at it again as they jump into the magical Crystal Cave and land in Italy in the year 2050 to collect a rare mineral from the top of the world’s most dangerous volcano.

When Rose sneaks to the future and finds that Emma and Brody are in grave danger, she races to find Max and asks her to help save their friends. As Emma and Brody team with a group of college students to climb up the crater’s summit over 300 feet in the air to collect the prized samples, they must risk their lives to save their friends when a terrible rockslide turns into the nightmare of a full volcanic eruption.

Book 1: BLUE JOHN’S CAVERN Traveling through caves, jumping through time. Nothing interesting ever happens in Diamond Falls, West Virginia, and that's doubly true for local teenagers Emma and Brody. Little do they know that their neighbor, a famous geologist, is about to show them the wildest time of their lives. When Mr. M's prized rock and mineral collection is destroyed before it can be displayed at the state museum, Emma and Brody jump at the chance to find new samples. The geologist accepts the offer, and promptly sends them back to the year 1775 to help! Back in time and across the pond in Derbyshire, England, Emma and Brody team with a mysterious young girl named Max to recover one of the rarest minerals in the world: Blue John Fluorite. Tapping into courage they never knew they had, the formerly ordinary West Virginians must protect a cave, avoid gun-toting soldiers, and return to the present before they're trapped forever. Book 2: RUSHER’S GOLD A time-traveling cave. A vicious band of miners…and pure gold. After a successful trip to 1775 England where they collected the rare Blue John Fluorite, Emma and Brody are quick to jump at the chance to travel to the California Gold Rush in 1851. When they arrive at the Gold Rush and meet an old acquaintance, they think the mission will be easy until they realize their friend may not be able to help them at all. When their actions in the past erase their future, can Emma and Brody right the wrong? With a hostile group of miners hot on their trail, Brody and Emma must collect the gold, save their friends, and salvage the future before it is too late. Book 3: BLACK’S OPAL Determined to find the perfect Black Opal, Emma and Brody with the help of Mr. M’s granddaughter, travel to Lightning Ridge, Australia in 1925. As they navigate a herd of stampeding kangaroo, goat cart races, and flying boomerangs, the kids meet Rose, a young girl whose mysterious secret will rock their world forever. When their attempts to collect the perfect opal anger the locals, the kids flee and accidentally land over 2000 years in the future in South Carolina. Can the kids figure out how to return to their own state and time? Will Rose’s secret stop them from helping Mr. M? Will Max finally figure out who destroyed her Grandfather’s prized rock and mineral collection and why? The answers are all inside but may leave you with a new mystery to solve.

Phoenix is a young girl who lives in Hawaii. She is there because her father, who is a navy chief, is stationed there. When her school class goes to Volcano Island to see the world’s largest volcano, Phoenix encounters Eli-Ela, the queen of the Volcano Island Fairies. No one else can see or hear the queen, but the queen warns Phoenix that the volcano is about to erupt, and they must save the people who are gathered around it. For aiding the fairy queen, Phoenix is made a princess of the fairies. But it is not till later she learns she can fly and why she can never be a fairy princess. From that first encounter with the queen, Phoenix has other adventures with the fairies. She meets President Lin-Con of the Fairy Council. She finds that she must save the fairy city from destruction and she must rescue the fairy children. In the end, Phoenix becomes the first human in centuries to share with the fairies “The Festival of the Sun and Stars.” Parents who have read these stories with their young daughters have noticed that all of the primary and strong characters are women.

Park Rose is a story based on actual events that occurred in my life growing up. I titled the book Park Rose because Park Rose was a street I lived on in Duarte, California, a very nice, quiet neighborhood in the Monrovia area. Our house wasn’t right in the middle of the neighborhood, but I’m sure all the screams and sounds coming from that house made it the center of the neighborhood attention. I will never forget the things that occurred on Park Rose and in my life thereafter. God has brought me a might long way. Without God, I know I would not be here being able to share my testimony with you all. I also wanted to make awareness to mental illness. Enduring through years of abuse, my mother was not able to care for us appropriately anymore. She is not able to care for herself today. Abuse doesn’t just end when the abuse stops; it continues for years without the proper help.
