November Author Interviews Featuring Mia Fox

Today I'd like to welcome, Mia Fox! 

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer my questions. 
I'm excited to have you and can't wait to learn more about you.

1. Where do you find inspiration for your books? 

Inspiration comes in many forms...a sunset, a recipe that brings back memories, or even a song. It's an elusive thing that I've learned you can't chase. You just have to hope that it finds you.

2. Is there a routine to your writing?

I like to wake up early before the rest of the house and spend quiet time writing before the day is light. It's my favorite time to write. However, I try to also sneak in moments when the kids are at school or doing their homework. 

3. Who are some of your favorite writers? How have they inspired you?
I read a variety of genres and writers depending on my mood. If I want something I can easily get into and filled with romance, I reach for Nicholas Sparks. I also try to stay up on the current NY Times best-sellers. I recently finished "Girl on a Train" and wonder if I could try my hand at something in the thriller/mystery genre one day.

4. What are you working on now?

Presently, I'm working on a contemporary romance that is set in Oxford, England and follows the story of an older woman and a younger man. There's every reason for them to be apart from age to finances, from life experiences to education, but they are drawn to each other. 

5. What advice would you give to unpublished writers?

Writers write! Whether you are published or unpublished, you have to remember that and do it...every day.

Coffee or Tea

both! coffee in the morning; tea in the afternoon

Wine or Beer

neither! I'm unusual in that I don't like the effects of alcohol

Movies or Books

Hemsworth or Pratt

Summer or Winter
Summer -- I hate the cold

Beach or Mountains
beach -- I was born in California

Pizza or Cheeseburger
neither -- see above. I stay pretty healthy.

Love at First Sight or Friends to Lovers
Love at First Sight

Halloween or Christmas

Game of Thrones or Outlander
Oh Game of Thrones! I can't wait for it to start up again...Jon Snow, sigh.


Mia Fox is a Los Angeles-based novelist who writes across varied genres including Contemporary and Paranormal Romance, Chick Lit, and Satire. She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from U.S.C.

Before writing full time, she worked as an entertainment publicist, a career she chronicles in her novel, “Alert the Media.” However, she is happy to leave that world behind her, preferring that any drama in her life is only that which she creates for her characters.

She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, three children, Casey, the Wonder Westie, and Bean, his brother.

Nate survived countless attacks on his Marine platoon while in Afghanistan, but one undying thought kept him safe -- the knowledge that Ella was waiting for him. 

Ella marked off the days until Nate’s return by writing letters to him, knowing that once he was safely home, they would fulfill their promise to live each day to its fullest. 

Theirs was a love that would endure separation...even in the wake of a tragic accident. 

Although now apart, Ella is given reason to believe in ghosts when Nate’s presence visits her and remains her lover. But when another man enters her life, Ella struggles to give herself over to a new love and maintain her bond to Nate’s ghost. 

A romantic ghost story and love triangle tied to one woman’s need to...Believe.
