Interview 2 – Brantley J. Brown

For my second interview I wanted to introduce my good friend Brantley. I am always admired by anyone who drops everything to move across country to follow their dreams. I know it isn't easy - and I know that fear can be debilitating; often times keeping people from pursuing the one thing that makes them happy. So meet Brantley J. Brown: 1. So what made you pick up everything from Tennessee and move to Southern California? I think that a lot of people, at some point in their life, stop and have a moment of reflection. They evaluate everything they've done and accomplished. Some find they are right where they want to be, and some find that they still have so much left in this world to do. I definitely am one who found that I hadn't done nearly a fraction of things that I wanted to do in my l...

Interview 1 – Barbara Spoor

So here at Mimosas with Michael, we wanted to do something new and different. We thought it would be neat to include online articles and interviews of people who have fun and exciting ventures going on - and that we could share with our audience. We decided to launch our first interview with Barbara Spoor, who at the age of 25 walked off her job to follow her passion...and started a blog in the process. 1. First off, I’d like to ask what inspired you to start your blog ‘I Quit My Job at 25’ Writing has always been a big passion of mine. The week of my 25th birthday, I was going through a really big shift in how I was thinking about the life I was living. It's funny, because there was absolutely nothing wrong with my life coming from a logical stand point. I had a great job with a Major Hol...

Episode 5 – Matthew R. Fleming

Michael sits and has a mimosa with horror author Matthew R. Fleming, who has self-published his first novel The Dreams. Synopsis: Waking up in an unknown forest with four strangers, James has an unsettling feeling that the group is not alone. As tension mounts and he finds himself questioning the motives and loyalty of his companions, one of the group members disappears, leaving only a pool of blood behind. It soon becomes clear that something very large and unnatural is in the deep secret places of the forest. And it knows they are there . . .
