She used her qualifications to pursue a career as a communication and corporate strategy consultant, working in New York and London before ultimately deciding to turn her obsession with history and characterization into a publishing career.
Even though she knew from an early age that she wanted to write for a living, the author was aware that writing and publishing were risky. She had no interest in becoming a financial burden to anyone, least of all her family, which is why she got the MBA.
She understood that a life in the corporate arena would enable her to contribute to her family’s finances. However, despite the rigors of her Columbia Business School Class, Beatriz found the time to read novels.
She had a story on her laptop at all times. Though, she went to great lengths to hide her activities. When her first child came along, the author used the maternity leave to write seriously. When her third child was a year old, she started attending conferences, using the opportunity to learn everything she could about storytelling and publishing.
She believes that her time in the corporate world was a great help because it nurtured her ambitious side. It also gave her the discipline to work diligently. That discipline enabled Beatriz to write and refine her manuscripts every single day until she became the established figure that historical fiction fans know and love today.
Beatriz has not downplayed the strength of will it takes to churn out multiple novels each year. She was incentivized to work harder when her husband left wall street. With bills to pay and children to put through college, she had plenty of reasons to sit down and hone her craft.
Beatriz writes every day. In the initial stages of her career, she made it a point to write three books a year. But she couldn’t maintain that production rate. The author has adopted a more comfortable pace. Though, her discipline hasn’t wavered.
She writes in the morning, but only after her children have left for school. The author spends the afternoon running errands. Because she doesn’t want to waste a single free moment, Beatriz squeezes a writing session into her evenings.
Like any other author, her career has ups and downs. But despite the occasional moments of frustration, Beatriz loves what she does.

Best Beatriz Williams Books
The author loves receiving feedback from readers whose lives were touched by the stories in her novels. Beatriz’s best books include:
A Hundred Summers: For Lily Dane, Seaview, Rhode Island should have provided a welcome reprieve from the challenges of the socialite’s everyday life in New York. But then Nick and Budgie returned. Nick was Lily’s former fiancé. Budgie was her former best friend, and the two were now married.
Their emergence sparked a wave of gossip that would have overwhelmed most people. But it rolled off Budgie like water. She wormed her way back into Lily’s life, unaware of the strong bond between Lily and Nick, a bond dragging them towards one another despite their better judgment.
The Summer Wives: Miranda Schulyer’s father died in WWII. She came to Winthrop Island with her beautiful mother, who married Hugh Fisher. Miranda met Isobel Fisher, her stepsister and the fiancé of a wealthy Island scion. Isobel opened Miranda’s eyes to the world beneath Winthrop’s façade, one that was split between the summer families and their working-class neighbors.
Joseph Vargas, the son of a lighthouse keeper, caught Miranda’s eye. But Joseph had nurtured a long and intense friendship with Isobel. By the time summer came to an end, Miranda had become embroiled in a catastrophe.
Now, two decades after she was banished from the Island, Miranda has returned. The island is seemingly unchanged. But the renowned actress’ discoveries prove otherwise.
The Fisher clan has diminished, barely a shadow of its former self. Joseph, who wanted to make something of himself after graduating from Brown University, was incarcerated after committing murder.
Miranda’s return has a purpose. She is determined to bring every secret the island is hiding to light.
