When I was just 4-years old I wrote on my blog - "Hi, I am Mia Mei, alias M&M, Dawgie, Sweety, Gundam, puchi puchi, Mimi and a bunch of other things.
I am Chinese-American. And I am learning what that means and have written about my experiences growing up here on my blog.
My mommy and daddy love me and from them I learn to love life.”
I aim to make the world a better place. I have dreams of going on a Peace-Corps Mission, and maybe becoming a teacher at US military installations around the world. I also love stories and think that perhaps I may go to work for Pixar as a storyteller or become a Disney Imagineer. I want to give back to the world of stories.
I am now a 7th grader and I really love to read. I love to read so much that I have run out of things that I like to read. Oh, there are a lot more books to read for sure. But not the kind I wanted to read. You know ... kiss-y, love-y. Yuck! At least, not yet.
In the summer between finishing my 5th grade at the elementary school I attended and moving up to the 6th grade in a new school, my Dad and I decided to create our own series of books.
We did. We did.
Dad and I co-authored the first 3 books in the Growing Up Aimi Series (1300+ pages!) and expect to finish number 4 by Thanksgiving ‘20. We have themes and storylines for books 5, 6 and 7 also. One book at a time.
We invite you to join 3,000+ others to receive our bi-weekly newsletters. For signing up you will receive a FREE COPY of Making of the Giant Forest.

We welcome you to the Growing Up Aimi world and are thrilled to have you dive into the Growing Up Aimi Series. For a limited time you can GET the BOXED SET of ALL 3 BOOKS in one e-box set for $2.99.

Geraldine Evans is a multi-published British novelist who believes in writing to entertain her readers.
After eighteen books published with traditional publishers (Macmillan and St Martin's Press, among them), in 2010 she made the decision to become independent (assisted in this decision it has to be said, by her publishers booting her off their list when she refused to sign their latest contract assigning to them the rights in all her eBook editions! Writing can be a cruel profession. :( )
As an intrepid Indie, she's since gone on to publish all of her back-list, as well as new novels in both the Rafferty series (Game of Bones #18, The Spanish Connection #17, Asking for It #16, and Kith & Kill #15), and other fiction and non-fiction.
Her very first attempt at a mystery novel, Dead Before Morning (Rafferty & Llewellyn series), much to her amazement, was plucked from Macmillan's slush pile and published in the UK (1993), and the US (1994).
Her favourite crime author is Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, whom she loves for her witty Bill Slider series. And her favourite historical author is Sharon Kay Penman, who never fails to tug at the heartstrings, so vivid are her character portrayals.
Geraldine Evans's working life has been so varied that she was bound to become a writer in the end. It included stints as an office worker in a psychiatric hospital, as an assistant in a public library, running their own vehicle repair workshop with her mechanic husband, an au pair, behind bars, in factories, for the legal world, the energy world, and the insurance world as an office temp. She's helped out in the Constituency Office of her local Member of Parliament and looked after other people's dogs while their owners took a holiday. She's worked with some great people (and some not so great, admittedly, but they were a gift to a writer!)
She spent most of her life in London (UK), where she was born and brought up, the youngest of four children, but moved to a market town in Norfolk (UK) in 2000, with George, her late husband.

SHORTLISTED AUTHOR FOR 2018 KINDLE STORYTELLER AWARD FOR "HIT AND DONE"
Hi. Thanks for stopping by my Amazon author page. I'm Andy Maslen, creator of Gabriel Wolfe and Stella Cole. I've always loved reading thrillers, so when I took the plunge and began work on my first novel - Trigger Point - it seemed natural to me to follow my heroes.
A lot of my readers ask me if I have ever served in the military. I haven't, but I have some close friends who have. They've been incredibly generous with their time (and patience!), explaining how things work, from weaponry and materiel, to the everyday language and behaviour of soldiers.
There are tons of people out there doing varied and interesting (and sometimes dangerous) jobs. As an author it's fantastic to be able to contact them and find they're only too happy to discuss their work. I've interviewed murder detectives, pharmacology professors, military planners, movie fight arrangers, Special Branch officers ... and they've all shared invaluable details to bring my stories to life. I hope their contributions increase your enjoyment of my books.
In my time, I've worked in a record shop, as a barman, as a door-to-door DIY products salesman and a cook in an Italian restaurant. I eventually landed a job in marketing. I always try to take away something positive from any experience, and often find a memory will surface of a situation I've been in, or a person I've met.
