Meet Mika Jolie at Readers & 'ritas in November!

As part of our countdown to Readers & ‘ritas 2017, our Meet the Author interview series helps you get to know the authors joining us in Texas on November 10-12. Read on to get acquainted with Mika Jolie, and purchase your tickets to meet her in person at Readers & ‘ritas!

What book made you fall in love with the genre you write?

It was The Passionate Lover by Carole Mortimer under Harlequin Presents. I found it at used bookstore, and from that moment, I was hooked. I’d count the day for her releases and stay up all night and read. For me, the contemporary romance genre tackles a myriad of relatable issues that women deal with on this beautiful journey called life. But also, at the heart of those novels is learning to forgive, discovering something new, and loving the men in our lives, our families, and our friends.

If a movie were made of your most recent book, who would you cast in the lead and why?

Lance Parker is my Dean. He was my muse while I was writing THE BOY FRIEND. I actually have a whole page on my website dedicated to my muses.

What was the first story you ever wrote?

I think I was 13 and it was called Chucks . . . an ode to my great pair of Converse sneakers.

If you could change the ending to any famous book, TV show, or movie, what would it be and how would you rewrite it? (Spoiler alert!)

Hmm probably How I Met Your Mother. Once Robin and Barney became a couple, I found myself rooting for them. In my revised version, they’d stayed married, and he would follow her when she gets her dream job. And instead of the mother being a small part of the story, I’d make the season ending about Ted and Tracy.

What is your favorite part of meeting your readers (and new readers)?

Where do I begin? There’s nothing like the ability to actually see the person live, to talk, laugh, to discuss characters that moved and provoked them.
