Myra Lewis Williams
My first book, Great Balls of Fire, published in 1989, turned out to be a publisher’s idea of the only part of my life he thought anyone would be interested in: my marriage at age thirteen to my second-cousin Jerry Lee Lewis. The movie by the same name ended up being a producer’s idea of how he thought my life should have been. Never before has my real life story been told. Well, this is it. I’ve finally been able to write my story in my own words. I hope you find it to be inspiring and helpful. Or at the very least, I hope it gives you some chuckles along the way. Thank you so much for reading The Spark that Survived. My best wishes to you in fanning the flames of your own life story.
