I wrote the story of Anthony Duck-Young Del Vecchio about a year ago and have rewritten it five times to make it just the way I want it! I researched quite a bit and had to figure out how to fit all of my important points into a work of YA fiction. I wanted Inclination to have substance, as well as heart.

Here is the official blurb for the story:

Sixteen-year-old Anthony Duck-Young Del Vecchio is a nice Catholic boy with a very big problem. It’s not the challenge of fitting in as the lone adopted South Korean in a close-knit family of Italian-Americans. Nor is it being the one introverted son in a family jam-packed with gregarious daughters. Anthony’s problem is far more serious—he is the only gay kid in Our Way, his church’s youth group. As a high school junior, Anthony has finally come to accept his sexual orientation, but he struggles to determine if a gay man can live as a faithful Christian. And as he faces his dilemma, there are complications. After confiding his gayness to his intolerant adult youth group leader, he’s asked to find a new organization with which to worship. He’s beaten up in the church parking lot by a fanatical teen. His former best pal bullies him in the locker room. His Catholic friends even stage an intervention to lead him back to the “right path.” Meanwhile, Anthony develops romantic feelings for David Gandy, an emo, out and proud junior at his high school, who seems to have all the answers about how someone can be gay and Christian, too.

Will Anthony be able to balance his family, friends and new feelings for David with his changing beliefs about his faith so he can live a satisfying life and not risk his soul in the process?

I hope you mark in your calendar– FEBRUARY 25th 2015 INCLINATION BY MIA KERICK

  1. I CANNOT WAIT!!! This will be another great book from you, Mia! And an important one. So many teens struggle with this exact issue: balancing their religion and their sexuality, oftentimes in the face of great opposition to one or the other or both.

    Peace ❤

  2. Jay- thank you for reaching out to me here!! I worked VERY HARD on Inclination and I am looking forward to it getting out into the world to help teens who have struggled with this issue and to hopefully sensitize people who have not had to struggle with this.
