Hello, little foxes! Today I have the blessing of bringing you an interview with Mimi Grace, whose debut Along for the Ride comes out next month! I personally cannot wait for it to come out, so get to know her now!
– About Mimi Grace –
Mimi Grace credits romance novels for turning her into a bookworm at twelve years old. It didn’t matter if those stories included carriages or cowboys, she could be found past her bedtime getting lost in a couple’s journey to happily-ever-after.
If you don’t include mint chocolate chip ice cream and long-running reality TV shows, romance novels are where Mimi finds the most joy.
She wants to evoke that same feeling in others with diverse books that are sexy, fun, and delightful. Her debut, Along for the Ride, comes out July 16, 2019.
What’s the first book you remember falling in love with?
Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. I loved Anne because she was a fascinating combination of insecurity and boldness. I also watched the 1985 Anne of Green Gables miniseries an absurd amount of times.
What’s your favorite part in Along for the Ride?
I like the banter between my hero and heroine. They have the jokes and the comebacks I wish I could wield in conversations to seem cool and witty. But, alas, I’m stuck with a nervous giggle.
If you had a burger named after you, what kind of burger would it be, and what would you want to be on it?
A cheeseburger with some sort of spicy mayo or chipotle sauce. Also, I’d include lettuce, jalapeños, tomatoes, pickles, and lots of onions (the amount that would have me worrying I’d offend someone’s sense of smell once I spoke). The burger would also be so big that I’d have to either cut it in half or risk losing all the contents down the front of my shirt.
What’s your favorite emoji?
Hands down it’s . It’s such a goofy grimace that works in a lot of scenarios.
Who are your top 5 writing influences?
Alyssa Cole for how she’s successfully written in different romance subgenres, N.K. Jemisin and Shelly Laurenson for their world-building, I also just love Naima Simone’s storytelling style, and Ms. Beverly Jenkins for her long career and the interesting ways she continues to explore Black American history through her novels.
What’s one thing that would surprise readers to know about you?
I have no desire to extensively travel the world; I don’t have wanderlust. It’s mainly because I really don’t like flying (I enjoy road trips though! :D). That being said, there are a few places around the world I would love to visit or return to for one reason or another.
Do you have any future books planned or in the works?
I do! I have two more romantic comedies planned out, and I hope to release both of them the first half of 2020. The next one is a Pygmalion/My Fair Lady-inspired story.
When Jolene Baxter offered to help her sister and brother-in-law move halfway across the country, she didn’t foresee the last minute changes that would leave her making the journey with the one person she can’t stand, Jason Akana. Their interactions are strained from a heated confrontation five years prior, but adding car problems, a pit stop, and sizzling chemistry, leaves them rethinking things.
