Chatting with Mya:
What inspired you to write If You Believe?
I have always loved reading holiday romance. One of my goals as a writer has been to create a holiday story of my own, but one that was a bit different from the holiday romance books that I’ve read. If You Believe has a touch of the paranormal, but still focuses on romance and the magic of the holiday season.

How long have you been writing?
My first book was published in August of 2014. I started writing as a child but then took a break from writing when I became a teacher and started my family. I’m happy to come back to writing now that I’ve earned my masters degree and have a bit more time to devote to creating my stories.

What book inspired you to begin writing?
I started writing poetry and short stories for my grandmother, she cherished and kept every story I had written.

Who is your favorite author(s)?
I love Jo Jo Moyes, Liane Moriarty, Nicholas Sparks, James Patterson and so many more.

If you had to choose a fictional character from one of your books to have lunch with, who would it be and why?
Okay, that’s a tough one. I would say Jake from The Calm After the Storm. Jake is a sweetheart, loyal, handsome and a family man who puts the needs of others before himself.

What has been your biggest accomplishment since publishing?
My biggest accomplishment is fulfilling my lifelong dream to become a writer and to persevere even when things are challenging.

Do you have anything else in the works apart from your book/series?
Yes, I have my new contemporary romance, Wasted Time coming out soon with Blue Tulip Publishing. I also have a ghost story that I just finished, it’s different from what I usually write, but it was so much fun to create and still has some romance woven through it. I’m currently in the process of writing a few short stories as well.
