Life Gets Tough and Wild

Miranda Oh Author Interview

Miranda Oh Author Interview

Remember, No Matter What is an fun and emotional story about life, love and the struggle for both. How did you come up with the idea behind this story?

Life is the entire idea behind the story. Life gets tough and wild, we have a choice as to how to deal with it. Chin Up Tits Out is a positive little self-reminder to always choose to stand tall and proud.

Hadley is a charming and interesting character. What were some sources of inspiration that shaped her character?

Hadley is the more refined and tailored version of me. They said write what you know, and during this series I had an opportunity to dive deep into me, myself and I. With this project I explored characteristics I liked about myself and ones I wasn’t so fond of.

I had a great time reading this novel. What did you enjoy the most about writing this book?

The time I got to share it with the world. Writing is pretty isolating, so when it was finally time to share it and build connections with people through it, was my favorite part of writing this book.

This is book one in your Chin UP, Tits Out series. What can readers expect in book two?

Hadley and her partner from South Africa assume they are about to embark on their happily ever after; that wasn’t the case. You best buckle up and prepare yourself for the wildest of rides. In true chin up tits out fashion we hit tough topics like addiction, mental illness and cancer, but we highlight silver linings, dark humor and find an impossible source of strength to continue to press on.

Remember, No Matter What; Chin UP, Tits Out

Chick lit: Remember, no matter what; Chin UP, Tits Out: A chick lit romantic comedy (Chin UP, Tits Out: A chick lit comedy series) by [Oh, Miranda]

Remember, No Matter What; Chin UP, Tits Out by Miranda Oh centers around an 18 year-old girl named Hadley Hope McLeary. The story begins with Hadley working at a fair in Winnipeg, Canada. She meets a handsome boy named Riaan who is from Africa. They fall in love but when the fair comes to an end, he has to continue traveling to other fairs until going back to his country. Devastated from being apart, they do their best to have a long distance relationship. They plan to find Riaan a working visa to enter Canada again, but it is a long and difficult task. They do everything they can to be together, but will they manage to get the visa? Can their love withstand the long months apart?

The authors uniquely positive attitude towards life shines through in the tone and style of this fun romance novel. The writing style is absorbing and easy flowing, which for me, is starkly different from many romance novels in the genre. Miranda Oh uses colloquial vocabulary, not the typical punctuated dialogue, that adds depth to both the characters and the story. I felt like this would be a fabulous Rom-Com movie; a feel good roller-coaster of emotion.

The plot is positively campy and the emotion is genuine and deep, but I felt that the the pace was a little fast. Many events happen quickly without giving me a moment to contemplate what just happened or guess what might happen next; but this is a personal preference.

Hadley and Riaan are exceptional and well developed characters, but I felt that I knew a lot about Hadley and not so much about Riaan. Their families come up every now and again but I would have liked more background on their families; mostly because I wanted to see how Miranda Oh’s amusing perspective would have portrayed them.

All in all, this is a very enjoyable romance novel that was difficult to put down. This is a perfect read for the weekend. I look forward to reading the second book in this series. I highly recommend reading this beautiful romance story.
