Connect with Maya
My name is Maya Banks and I live in Texas with my husband, our three children and an assortment of pets. Personally, I’m more of a cat person, though at some point my daughter became convinced she NEEDED a dog. So convinced in fact that it became her mission to convince her father and me – she even prepared a two page handwritten proposal that detailed WHY she needed a dog and after I sent her to her father (I knew he wouldn’t tell her no) we embarked on the search for the perfect dog. This was shortly followed by a two hour journey across town, where I was pulled over for speeding... whilst on the phone to my agent, who was calling with an offer from a publisher for one of my books... the officer wasn’t impressed. He wrote me a ticket anyway. Thus, I now tell my daughter that her dog turned into one very expensive concession!
When I’m not writing, I love to hunt and fish with my family. We all love the outdoors and go on family hunting trips every year. We also love to travel.
Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of a writing career is getting to meet so many wonderful readers. There’s nothing better than dishing books with someone who loves the romance genre as much as I do. Romance readers are passionate and vocal. We love our books, love our happily ever afters, and we love to spend time talking to others about our favourites. This is why I love my job so much, and I’m so grateful to readers who gave me a chance when I began my career. So thank you.
