Mika Jolie

Welcome to my blog. If this is your first time, I’m a mommy, wife, fan of coffee, and a writer who loves to write emotive tales that loop women’s fiction and romance in a diverse world. I tend to share a lot of moments from my life with my Happy Chaos—my husband and our two energizer bunnies—my love for sports, music I stumble upon, and my unbridled enthusiasm for life. Feel free to comment anytime on any of my posts at the bottom of any entry. Love and kisses.

“You can find inspiration in everything. And if you can’t, look again.” – Paul Smith It’s about that time where the mid-winter blues begin to appear. The holiday bills have started to roll in. For those of us in the colder states, day after day of freezing temps and snow piled upon snow can lead to […]

Choosing names for my fictional characters

So, what’s the big deal about naming a character in a fictional novel? I mean, a name is a name, right? Naming a fictional character can be a fun but daunting experience, each name could reflect major personality traits, or the character’s role in the story. Those who know me well and my writing process […]

Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.

I have a dream… I asked my children why they were off for school today. Neither hesitated when they answered that it was for Martin Luther King Day.
