Read on to find out about Mia March!
Author Spotlight: Mia March
Mia, who are some of your favorite authors?
A: My favorite author is Elizabeth Berg. I love the way she writes studies of women in her elegant, honest voice. Other favorites are: Claire Cook, Ann Hood, Sarah Addison Allen, Jo-Ann Mapson, Helen Fielding, Allison Winn Scotch, Pam Houston, Ann Patchett. . . I could go on and on!
When you are not writing, what do you like to take part in?
A: I’m either writing, reading or at the movies! This past week I saw Man of Steel, Monsters University (with my son) and World War Z. Next up: Before Midnight, Arthur Newman (starring our Colin; I somehow missed this in the theater), and The Heat.
Mia- do you have any #literaryconfessions?
A: I still haven’t read The Great Gatsby. I’ve tried many times over the course of my life. I get to a certain point early on and I stop. All the attention from the movie has made me want to sit down with it again.
What is your favorite movie of 2013?
So far, Monsters University. J Not brilliant like the original, but super cute.
Speaking of Meryl Streep, with Lauren Wesiberger recently releasing Revenge Wears Prada, do you hope that Meryl might reprise her role as Miranda Priestly if Revenge Wears Prada is made into a movie?
A: Yes! I LOVED The Devil Wears Prada. I saw a hilarious interview with Meryl Streep when she was asked if she’d reprise her role, and she said: “Sure, but I’d have to lose the f-ing weight.” Love her!
Do you have a #literarycrush?
A: My literary crush is and has always been Gilbert Blythe from Anne of Green Gables. Such a good egg.
Mia- what is your vision of a perfect day?
A: A morning walk along the trails with my son and our sweet beagle, followed by black bean and veggie burritos for lunch and a couple of hours with a good book, then a few hours of writing. Finally, a movie, preferably starring my heartthrob, Colin Firth. Perfection.
