Mya Larose was born in Turkey in the eighties, educated in France, studied in Cambridge University. She is a thirty-three year old youngish woman living in northern Ireland, now, with her wonderful Northern Irish husband as well as her children and a wee granddaughter.
Mya was attracted to books since she could remember. As she grew “older” her love for books followed. She always wanted to write but had this fear of refusal. Putting her phobia aside, she pulled her big girls knickers on and started to write six months ago.
It wasn’t long before she decided to try her hand at getting it published. She couldn’t describe what she felt when she learned that her first book was going to be published. Since then, she’s been working on two more manuscripts.

Q: What time do you start writing each day?
A: I wake up from anywhere between 5:00 and 6:00 a.m. my mornings usually constitute of preparing my girls for their day ahead. As soon as, I drop off one to school, I put my younger down for a wee nap, I would grab my laptop and check for any incoming emails and then I begin work on my latest story. I usually have an hour of writing under my belt by the time my daughter wakes up. We spend our day playing, reading and gardening until it’s time to pick up my older girl from school. Between banter, homework, dinner and cuddles before bed, I would sit behind my laptop and write away until my eyes feel grainy. There are never enough hours in the day for me to utilize my passion for writing.
Q: Did you find it hard to start writing?
A: Actually, I did to start with. I’m a person who can speak three languages fluently. The ideas and inspirations would immerse me in any situation and location but I found it hard when it came to write them down in English, it would take me two to three times to review my manuscript before I’m satisfied.
Q: How long have you been writing for?
A: I have been writing for about six months now and love the fact that I can create characters and stories which people want to read. I love to hear from readers about what they think of my stories, so if you want to contact me, or just let me know what you think of my work, don’t hesitate to send me an email. It may take me a couple of days to reply, but reply I will.
Q: How would you describe yourself?
A: All over the place. From the outside, people see me as a calm and controlled person but behind closed doors, I’m like a hummingbird. I would start a project and start a second before accomplishing the first. There isn’t a day where I sat down for a wee cup of tea and actually finished it.
Q: If you had to choose, which writers would you consider an inspiration?
A: I couldn’t possibly choose one author over another. The majority of the Siren-BookStrand authors are my inspiration amongst others. However, I have a weakness for time travelling Romance.
Q: What is your favorite way to relax or reward yourself after a long, productive day of writing?
A: Would you believe me if I told you that the best reward I receive is knowing that I have accomplished my goals. I would snuggle in my couch with a warm tea or coffee and sigh in contentment.
Q: What do you do in your spare time?
A: I love to read, spend time with my family, cook and garden.
