Filipino-American author Maida Malby cooks up foodie, multicultural, and contemporary destination romance stories filled with heat, sizzle, spice, and a whole lotta love.
She is a member of select writing groups and romance book clubs. Her To-Be-Read Mountain and book reviews are featured here on her blog Carpe Diem Chronicles. Readers can also find her on Lone Star Literary Life via her regular Texas Reads Roundup Romance column.
When not writing, reading, or reviewing books, Maida discusses current affairs with her husband, records her son’s Travels and Eats videos, cooks the dishes she features in her stories, procrastibakes more often than she should, and watches golf and food shows on TV.
Here’s what she says about herself:
I’m a writer, reader, reviewer, and blogger; a foodie and home cook. I love to travel and learn languages. The Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and the USA are countries I called my home at some point in my life. I speak English, Filipino, Indonesian, Thai, and French in various degrees of fluency. My husband is a Veteran of the US Air Force and our son will be a future baker. I am also a daughter, a sister, and a friend. In my five decades of life, I have been a researcher, media planner, negotiator, advisor, director, vice-president, and diplomat. Through all those titles, I have always been, at the same time, a student – a lifelong learner.
Carpe Diem is my personal motto. I hope you enjoy seizing the day with me.
