Interview with Author Myra Hubbard

Author Myra Hubbard also known as Myra Inez is the author of the teen novel Stacy. She was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. Graduated from Murray Wright High School in 2000.

Her love for writing came to her at the tender age of 12 in 1994. That is when Stacy was originally written. “I can’t exactly pinpoint what made me sit down and write this book, but I did get some inspiration from reading Judy Blume’s Fudge series of books”, stated Myra in this introduction to this interview.

Tell me more about your latest book

Like I mentioned before Stacy was originally written when I was 12 years old back in 1994. Throughout the novel Stacy Marie Warner has major demons to fight. Next to Jamie Shaw, food was Stacy’s best friend. This diet her parents put her on was absolutely pointless. They had no idea about her over indulgence. Stacy still gave this diet total disregard. Will she ever learn her lesson from all of this splurging?

What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?

  1. Sitting down and finding the time to write it.
  2. Editing and proofreading was a gruelling process. Yes, true I had extra sets of eyes looking over my work, but it was still a challenge.

What is your normal procedure to get your books published?

I used Amazon and Barnes & Noble to publish my work.

Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?

Yes, writing and reading Stacy is a major stress reliever. When I am having a rough day I look over Stacy. I give myself a pat on the back because I know I have worked so hard on this project.

How many books have you written so far?

I have written three other books. Others include Stacy Too: The Wedge, Stacy 3: Jamie’s Crisis and Mary Jo Moves On. Mary Jo Moves on is more mature than the Stacy series. It’s for the 18 and up crowd.

What’s the best way to market your books?

Marketing is not easy. I mostly use social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Melanated People.

How hard or easy is it to establish and maintain a career in writing?

It is somewhat difficult because I still hold down a 9 to 5. I still managed to work on Stacy on off days and after work.

What is your advice for aspiring writers?

Never give up! If writing is your passion go for it!
