Mia Epsilon

Biography

I like to think of myself as a cross between Doctor Who companions Donna and Amy. I have Donna's blunt manner of speaking and big gooey heart coupled with Amy's enduring curiosity and belief in one true love. And of course, I'm a fellow redhead.

Story ideas tend to come from real life incidents, although I have not quite been able to bring myself to curse a heroine with setting her sleeve on fire at Christmas dinner and then flashing the entire fire department. Favorite authors include Samantha Holt, JD Robb, Stephen King, and Harper Lee. I read everything, anything, and prefer characters and stories that take me away. "We're all stories so make yours a good one."

I write the 'Weddings by C & C' series. This Destination Wedding Planning Service is based in Hilo, Hawaii and follows Christine Jergens, her husband Charlie, their children, and friends as they all travel the often surprising and rocky roads to marriage.

I pour a bit of myself into each character and story and often base plots on real-life events (like many authors do!). The almost plane crash in Book 1 is based on fact. The stalker in Book 3 is based on my best friend's horrible experience. The fandom of Book 4 is based on a real-life friend's obsession with Tom Hiddleston (okay, she got me to fangirl him as well. I'm only human!). I wrote the volcano eruption in Book 5 two years before the May 2018 Kilauea Eruption. I think I should write about winning the lottery next!

I fell in love with words from the moment I could speak. My Grandfather and Father, in true Scot-Irish tradition, were storytellers who could hold an audience captive and wide-eyed for hours. I hope to someday come close to their abilities and tell the stories floating about in my head.

I love to hear from readers, and feel free to connect with me on social media and tell me what you loved, liked, and hated in my books!

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do! It was about people who lived on the planet Venus and who wanted to sun bathe, but couldn't because of all the clouds. Earth sent Venus these giant fans that blew the clouds to mercury so it was more shaded and didn't get so hot. And all the people on Venus enjoyed their sunny days. I think I was six at the time.
What is your writing process?
I don't really have one, to be perfectly honest. I 'dream' most of my stories and books, then try to capture what I'm seeing in my head, like a dvd running at either way too fast or way too slow pace. When I'm at the computer, furiously typing away, I don't pay attention to spelling, sentence structure, etc. I go back later and clean it all up and make everything make some sort of sense.
