The Superstar. 

What’s a girl to do when she finally meets her knight in shining armor and he’s a born-again Christian? How can they have a romantic moment when he’s more interested in attending Bible study? How can she possibly compete with the God of all creation? This celebrity is falling head over designer heels for a regular guy who has traditional values and refuses to compromise (and she thought waiting to find out if she’d been nominated for a Video Music Award was tough!).     

The Average Joe.

What’s a guy to do when he falls for one of People magazine’s
50 Most Beautiful celebs and he happens to be a Christian? How does he ignore the fact that she’s more attracted to the things of the world than the fruit of the Spirit? How does he “just say no” when she wants to get physical? This average guy’s about to discover that sometimes when it comes to matters of the heart (and flesh), staying on the straight and narrow path can be easier said than done.


What inspired you to write "Destiny"?

     I was walking past my China cabinet which was filled with Barbie dolls and paused to admire one from Mattel’s “Diva” collection (who was striking a fabulous pose!); on another shelf stood a Ken doll proudly dressed like an N.Y.P.D. officer. I thought to myself: how in the world could two people from such different worlds ever meet? And an idea began to formulate in my mind…

Can you explain what your readers can expect to read in "Destiny"?

     Destiny is a love story about the two primary characters, of course, but it’s also a story about the love one man has for the God he serves and the things he values and believes in. It’s a story about the age-old challenges of darkness and light and whether or not love can truly conquer all.    

Who am I:  Ramona L. Mejia?

     I am an avid Barbie doll collector (I own nearly 200 of them), a lover of: 70’s light music, Italian food, Broadway theater, classical ballet and romance novels—especially the historical genre (been reading them since I was a pre-tween).

Who is your favorite character in "Destiny", and why?

     Hands down, my favorite character is Chelsea Bryant, Destiny’s personal assistant. When I created her, I envisioned actress Wanda Sykes! She’s feisty and funny and not afraid to stand up to the diva she works for. Plus, she’s got a big heart. Being Destiny’s assistant is more than just a job to Chelsea, she truly cares about the welfare of the family as a whole.

What has writing "Destiny" taught you?

     That some things in life truly are preordained; and a mystery, and when something is meant for you, there is a season, an appointed time and place, that the desire of your heart will be fulfilled.

What are your next projects? Where can your readers follow you?

Great question! I am considering writing a sequel to "Destiny", but in the meantime, my readers can follow me on Facebook: Ramona L. Mejia, Author.

BLOG WRITER'S NOTE TO AUTHOR: I am always fascinated with how a person comes up with the ideas for writing a story.  For me, a lot of my stories come from dreams that I have.  I thinks it's amazing that you own 200+ Barbies.  That sounds like you have an amazing collection. Your book, "Destiny" sounds like an interesting read.  I wish you the best with your writing, and thank you for the interview.
