Interview with Mia Johnson

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Doing yoga! I also love to sing and record music. And I travel. And I dream about finally getting a dog. My current living situation doesn't allow it, but in a few months hopefully that will change.
What is your writing process?
I love to journal, and I've used that as a way to develop my writing skills. I look at my own life as a story, and I try to find as much humor in it as possible, and turn those experiences into something that might be interesting for a reader. For me, writing is a very natural process. It's how I feel I express myself best.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I love stories with strong female characters who also have marked flaws. My all time favorite book is one that probably most people have never heard of ... it's called "Crown Duel" and it's written by Sherwood Smith. I read that book when I was 18 and I still read it to this day.
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything uplifting and funny! I'm not into dark and dreary.

I never saw myself joining the army. It wasn't even something I'd put on the back burner as a possibility in case my life goals didn't pan out. But after earning BA and MA degrees, I found myself, age 27, hopelessly in debt and working my old part-time job. Worse? I was living in my parent's basement on the spare bed. So I embarked on a crazy adventure... and it all stared in army basic training!
