My series is called The Oceans Series which is comprised of four novels. The first being Oceans Collide, Book 2 being Oceans Submerged, Book 3 Hawthorne’s Calm, and Book 4 Hawthorne’s Arrived. All of these titles will be published by Lock & Key Publications.
The Oceans Series started out with the vision of a strong male character named Ocean, and a very beautiful and conflicted young woman named Livie. I started writing for myself late in 2013 and the novel came about as a personal outlet to my own reality. I drew a lot of the raw emotion from my own feelings and bled them into a powerful story about pain, loss, love, and inner strength.
AMAZING! As an indie Author I had no idea what the heck I was getting myself into. All I knew at the time was that I had a story and I wanted this story read and loved by hundreds all over the world. I never imagined that my story would be so powerful and so loved by many that it would lead to my search for publication. Reaching this far has truly been a surprise that I certainly was not expecting but certainly one that I dreamed for.
I have always had a passion for written words. I’ve always been the type to write someone a letter rather than use my words in conversation. Also, my endless imagination for everything fantasy and fiction has always led me to search for a release in writing. As a child I wrote poetry which I was recognized for. My mind is an ever flowing river of thoughts, dialogue, dreams and hopes, which every now and then mesh into a really incredible story.
I have to say that when creating my characters…I can’t even remember how they came about. They just were. I knew who was going to be strong, who was going to be weak and who was going to be the glue to hold every else’s head above water. However, I honestly think my characters in this series is a very strong reflection of myself. I am a Pisces and we are very good at adapting to our surroundings and fitting in when we don’t want to be alone. All of my emotions, personal conflicts, fears, aspirations and dreams are somehow weaved into each of my characters. They are truly a reflection of myself at some point in my life.
I am a round-the-clock writer. My mind never stops going, talking, plotting, and preparing for the moment I can sit down and let it all out. I write best when I am listening to music however, it could be night or day, as long as I am tune with music I am in writing HEAVEN!
I really do have an awesome family, but other than myself no one really knows how involved I am as a writer. No one else in my family loves to read and write the way I do, so it’s hard for them to understand my obsession with writing and creating my stories. They do support me in my dedication to becoming a well known and loved writer and to me that is all that counts.
Here to stay and a lot to say! Readers can definitely count on seeing more from M.A. De Olmos! Up to date I have four complete novels just waiting for the chance to break free and make it to published status.
I love switching up my genres. It keeps me fresh and always learning about my writing style. I mainly gravitate towards New Adult Contemporary and New Adult Paranormal Fantasy. I am obsessed with werewolves so…the possibilities are endless.
My hobbies consist of being a fulltime mother of two, a fulltime medical biller and indie author. When I am not at work or catering to my zombie’s (six and three year olds) I am busy sneaking in some writing. Free time is scarce but when I can break away from the world I love to watch movies and television series.
Okay putting it out there I cannot live without chocolate and or my battery operated boyfriend. Yeap. I went there.
My advice to aspiring authors is to follow your gut. Some say the heart, but I say follow your gut. Your instinct is a powerful tool. Also, keep an open mind about your own work and please, please, please be confident in yourself. Not everyone will like, love and cherish your work but when you are given the opportunity to connect with readers that have fallen in love with your work, IT IS ALL WORTH IT. There is no other feeling like knowing you’ve almost made someone chuck their kindle across the room while screaming at your FU*KING cliffhanger at the end of the novel! I LOVE IT!
You would most likely find me glued to Netflix watching a Paranormal or Supernatural series. Son’s of Anarchy is my exception because JAX IS HELLA FINE!
I am Hispanic was born in Manhattan, New York and my parents are from Dominican Republic. I sing extremely well…in the shower. I am obsessed with supernatural men including but certainly not limited to the fine men in The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Supernatural, Witches of East End, Being Human and the list goes on ladies and gents.
The Oceans Series touches on a lot of real life situations. Not just hot sex, but real heart wrenching realities that many people go through alone. I hope that this series gives readers hope. No matter how hard, how cruel and how completely fucked our situations are we still have the will to fight back. Somehow we can fight back and hold on just a little while longer…just enough to make it to see tomorrow and then, then we tighten up our boots and do it again. There is nothing like realizing that you have got it in you to overcome what you fear. That is what The Oceans Series is all about.
Book one, Oceans Collide, can be found on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble as soon as August 1st. Book Two, Oceans Submerged, will be available through the same starting Friday, August 8th!!
