The course of true love never did run smooth…
Award-winning gay romance author Mia Kerick knows that a satisfying romance novel is riddled with challenges. For true love to prevail, the leading men are gonna have to put in some effort. (Sorry, readers, you’re gonna have to suffer right along beside them.) But the HEA is oh-so rewarding.
From Jane Eyre’s Mr. Rochester to Twilight’s Edward Cullen to Brokeback Mountain’s Ennis and Jack, Mia unsurprisingly has a great affinity for the tortured hero in literature. Her character-driven YA and adult contemporary romance focuses on such tropes as hurt/comfort, overcoming tragic childhoods, fear of being an unsuitable partner, and coping with arduous life circumstances.
Mia’s books have been bestsellers on Amazon lists and were featured several times in Kirkus Reviews magazine. They have won a 2019 IPPY GOLD award for Juvenile/Young Adult Fiction, a 2018 YA GOLD MOONBEAM Children’s Book Award, a YA Readers’ Favorite Award, several Gold Rainbow Awards in YA and adult categories, a Reader Views’ Book by Book Publicity Literary Award, the Jack Eadon Award for Best Book in Contemporary Drama, a YA Indie Fab Award, a First Place Royal Dragonfly Award for Cultural Diversity, a First Place Story Monsters Purple Dragonfly Award, and more.
Mia Kerick is a social liberal and cheers for each and every victory made in the name of human rights. Her only major regret: never having taken typing or computer class in school, destining her to a life consumed with two-fingered pecking and constant prayer to the Gods of Technology.
