Hi, my name is M. A. Phipps, and I’m an American fiction author living in the UK. From a young age, I remember having a passion for literature, but it went so much further than the daydreams we tend to have as children. Sure, there were moments when I wanted to be an astronaut or a ballerina (or yes, even a wizard), but the one thing that never left my mind was how much I loved reading and how amazing it would feel to see my name on the cover of something I had written one day. Now, I can finally say that dream has become a reality.
On the more personal side of things, I’m the wife of a hunky Brit and mother to one rambunctious (but adorable) little girl. I also have an equally crazy Jack Russell Terrier named Milo. Although I was raised in the US, I’ve lived in the UK for a decade now. I’m a big time movie and TV buff (I literally live for Netflix), and I love comparing books to their visual counterparts. You will never hear me say, “BUT THAT WASN’T IN THE BOOK!” probably because film studies was a huge part of my major at college and I enjoy seeing the differences. Oh, and I am quite possibly the biggest Lord of the Rings nerd alive.
In regards to my writing, I want to explore every genre of fiction possible. I want to test myself, explore the farthest reaches of my imagination, and above all, share my stories with the world.
