Meet the Author

J.M. Kearns, PhD, is a writer of fiction and non-fiction who has at various times been a philosopher of perception, a crisis counselor and a music journalist. He brings to his writing the unusual combination of a philosopher’s analytical mind and a novelist’s insight into emotions. His best-selling Why Mr. Right Can’t Find You was embraced by readers and the press on both sides of the Atlantic and has been featured on
Oprah & Friends and in OK! Magazine, Glamour, Cosmopolitan-UK, Maclean’s, The Toronto Star, and many others. Since then two more of his books have been published to critical praise: the novel ex-Cottagers in Love, and his second book of relationship advice, Better Love Next Time. J.M. Kearns grew up near Toronto, Canada and now lives in Cape May, New Jersey with his partner Debra.
