Mia Fairy and the Pirates looks like an exciting story. Can you tell us a little about it? 

it is about Mia Fairy who lives on a small island. what she does mostly on this island is growing mango trees. then when the trees are fully ripe a band of dirty pirates rip down every one of her precious mangos. Then just for fun they burn her whole island to the ground. So she has to go live on the stinky pirate ship. there she finds a boy that is shut up into an old treasure chest and left there to die. She rescues him using some of her fairy magic and the adventure then is to trick the pirates into letting them off onto dry land.


Any plans to turn it into a series? 

This is actually the back story of Mia Fairy who is in other books that are published and waiting to be published. One of the published ones is Ava Fairy Loses her Wings. Where Mia fairy uses her famous mango healing juice to help heal Ava Fairy when she is stepped on a greedy human man named Blister Bumm.


How were the illustrations done in Mia Fairy and the Pirates? 

The publishing company had some very talented artists connect to them.


What inspired you when writing Mia Fairy and the Pirates? 

It was just one of those stories that popped into my head. this happens a lot. Most of the stories that pop into my head come not completely done and I have to fill in the holes. But Mia fairy and the Pirates came to me whole from beginning to end. Even the epilogue just flowed out of my fingers from beginning to end. I have to say when i wrote the epilogue I ugly cried through the whole process and i still cry when i read it.


Can you tell us a little about Mia? 

Mia is patterned after my oldest granddaughter Mia. Mia fairy is very resourecful and kind and smart. Just like my granddaughter.


What age group is your book for? 

This is I think for a little bit older group than most of my stories. It is longer and it deals with some tougher subjects. I am not exactly sure what age group.. but I think it would appeal to many. A younger group would have to have it read to them, in maybe even pieces.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? 

I have always made up stories. It wasn’t until I was a grandmother that I thought I wanted to publish. One time my sisters grandchildren came to visit me and asked me to read to them one of my stories. so I did. They loved it! These were a group of kids that were 12 and up. so mostly teenagers.

One time my sisters grandchildren came to visit me and asked me to read to them one of my stories. so I did. They loved it! These were a group of kids that were 12 and up. so mostly teenagers. So if a group of teenagers loved my story I figured I would stop being scared and send my story to publishers. Now I have eight books on Amazon! with two more coming out soon!


What part of the book was the most fun to write? 

Oh the epilogue.. for sure. Even though I ugly cried through the whole process of writing it, it came to me so easily from beginning to end.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Mia Fairy and the Pirates? 

The epilogue deals with going into the light and death. I worried about this at first but I remembered a little golden book that I loved when i was a child. it dealt with death in such a beautiful way so I stopped worrying about this story.. this has a beautiful ending like that little golden book when i was little.

What do you like to do when not writing? 

I like to play games on my computer or on my phone. I try to do games that help my brain. Like word games and puzzle games. I also like to hang out with my friends here.

Where can readers find out more about your work? 

Well I usually send people to Amazon.. but you can get my work on Barns and noble or any other on line book store. I just found that a couple of my books are on GoodReads too. Which is so exciting! speaking of exciting Mia Fairy and the Pirates went from the top 600s in ranking on amazon to the top 100s last week! I was so excited! I think it is now about 146. So exciting!
