1. Tell us about your newest release.
When You Believe is the story of two people not falling in love so much as staying in love and growing in the process. Of course, all around them odd and weird things keep happening, all somehow tied to the new man in town no one seems to know anything about.
2. What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your story?
There is a scene in When You believe based on a true story which happened in a small town in the deep south. While researching this story, I discovered there are always 'coincidences' around us we take for granted but which could change our lives in a significant way.
3. Do you have any interesting or quirks or rituals?
I always keep 3 or 4 bottles of water on my desk when I write so I remember to hydrate. I also like to have a favorite show's music playing in the background when I write.
4. What authors or friends influenced you in helping you become a writer?
My first editor, Jen Bradlee, pushed me far beyond my 'safe' borders and showed me how to make my stories stronger and better.
5. What does your family think about your career as a published author?
They are very supportive and push me to write more.
6. Besides writing, what other interests do you have?
I love, love, love to read. I also am a huge Doctor Who fan and binge on complete seasons thanks to Netflix.
7. Can you tell us what is coming up next for you?
I'm working on the next three books in the Wedding by C and C series. there's also a special edition of the next chapter in Anna and Robin's story called 'Stuck on You' coming in February 2015 J

She also happily suffers a chocolate addiction which causes her to visit her favorite chocolate store, The Chocolate Fetish an abnormally high number of times.
Mia can most often be found at her computer spinning new tales or in a quiet padded nook (a nook, she swears, not a padded room) with her e reader happily engrossed in a new story. She's currently hard at work on her series 'Weddings by C & C' and trying to build its reputation from 'just another wedding story' to 'OMG you have GOT to read this book!'

Monica has deep roots in the small town of Abbeville and manages the local coffee shop, which serves as the hub of town news. Deeply in love with Daniel, she still can't help but notice the gorgeous stranger, Micheal, who seemingly appears out of nowhere. When Dan begins to pull away from her, what's a girl to do? Tempted to sit home and cry, Monica is determined to push through the uncertainty. Does that mean exploring new options?
Daniel carries secrets he can't share with anyone, even Monica. He's a man with no past and no relatives, so he doesn't believe he deserves a bright future. Pulling away from Monica, his love and the closest thing he has to a family, he believes is the only way she can truly find happiness. But when tragedy strikes Abbeville will the man with no roots become its savior? Or will he discover Micheal's true reason for appearing among them?
"Am I interrupting something?" Dan came in the door and stood just inside, his expression confused. "Is everything okay?"
"No. Amber is convinced Michael is some assassin here to kill someone for Jamie Manning who's part of the Irish mafia." She pointed at Dan as he burst into laughter and glared at Amber. "There. See how ridiculous you're being?"
"Oh, that's too funny. Adam and Emily would get such a kick out of that. I bet Chief Owens would, too." Dan bent over as he continued to laugh. "Come on that's too silly to be real."
"Well, okay, so maybe it is." Amber conceded with a hard note in her tone. "But you have to admit the guy is weird and freaky things happen around him."
Dan straightened and walked over to put an arm around Monica's shoulders. "He is, I agree. But he's no killer. He grabbed the Marley kid out of the street a few weeks back. And Monica told me how he saved Anna from falling right before she gave birth to the twins. No assassin does nice things like that."
"So what's his last name? And where is he staying?" Amber demanded. "I'm going to find out before something really bad happens. Then you two will have to eat your words." She stomped off to the back room, shoulders and spine stiff straight.
