Firefly YA Panel

By | My Life on a Plate, White Petals

I really enjoyed the Firefly Press Day at Waterstones Cardiff.
It was so nice to be on the YA panel with such great authors! The kids seemed to love the children’s authors, and the YA panel got a full house of readers in the audience.
Thanks to everyone for making it such a good day! 🙌😀💜

Amazing Authors in August!

By | My Life on a Plate, White Petals, Writing Stuff

I was asked to do an interview with The Book Activist for Amazing Authors in August.

I have to say, I absolutely loved it! There’s no better interview than a juicy or/and fun interview! I really like it when interviewers do something a bit different and put their own twist on the interview and the kind of questions they ask . It makes the interview fun and interesting for me to participate in, and I’m sure it makes for better reading for the audience.

So, thank you to The Book Activist for inviting me to be one of their Amazing Authors in August, and here’s the interview link below:

My First Huffington Post Article!

By | My Life on a Plate, Writing Stuff

The time has come.
I have finally got myself a place in the Huffington Post family! I’m so pleased! Yaaay! 😀
I have to stop using so many exclamation marks, I know. I’m just so excited, though!
I won’t babble on about it for too long, but I will say that my articles will be written on a mix of different subjects – not just about writing. I’ll be writing about personal development, women’s issues, parenting, relationships, health – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I’ll be writing about lots of different things during my time with Huff Post, and I’m really looking forward to it all!

So, here’s my first official Huffington Post blog post. It’s titled, Working with your Editor. It’s about … erm … well, working with your editor. If you don’t know much about what an editor actually does during the writing and publishing process, then this article is a good place to start learning.

Enjoy! xx

Working with your Editor – Maria Grace – The Huffington Post.

 

Interview with Books & Pontyclun

By | Cool Stuff, My Life on a Plate, White Petals | No Comments

I really enjoyed my visit to Books & Pontyclun bookshop. During my visit, I was asked if I would do a video interview with author Daniel Parsons, which I was very happy to do.
As a writer who’s used to being behind a screen, rather than in front of one, I find it weird to do video interviews. My brother Gav does it on a regular basis for IGN and he always seems really comfortable in front of the camera.
Me? I think I missed that screen-worthy gene because I find it really strange to talk to a monitor, instead of an actual person! Which is probably why I spent most of this interview looking at Dan, instead of the camera!
Either way, I don’t mind. I suppose if I’m interacting, then it doesn’t really matter if it’s with a person or a camera, as long as I’m communicating myself and my work effectively. It’s definitely something that I’d like to work on in the future, so I can hopefully one day be comfortable in front of a camera / screen / monitor, as well as behind it! But until then, I’ll just stay tucked up behind the screen and pages of my own stories. And why not? It’s a lovely place to be, after all!

Hope you enjoy watching 🙂

White Petals Wordsearch! :-)

By | Cool Stuff, My Life on a Plate, White Petals

I have been blessed with the most lovely gift ever!
A wonderful woman and reader of White Petals has written her review of the novel, and get this – created a word search in honour of my beloved characters!
Grateful is an understatement! I absolutely LOVE it! What a treat to have someone be so kind as to actually put the time and effort into doing something like this for you. When I realised what it was, and when I sat down to do the word search with my cup of tea and a slice of carrot cake, the whole thing literally brought a tear to my eye because I appreciated it so much.

WICID EXCLUSIVE: Interview with Brad Williams and Maria Grace

By | Cool Stuff, My Life on a Plate, White Petals

A couple of weeks ago, a young journalist called Brad Williams got in touch with me to ask for an interview for WICID.
Rhys Milsom – the editor of WICID – is a university friend of mine, and has told me all about the great social and creative benefits that WICID provides for our local community and young people. Being a supporter of creative incentives, I was more than happy to take part in Brad’s first exclusive interview for WICID.
