About the Author

Mia Kerick is the mother of four exceptional children—one in law school, another at a dance conservatory, a third studying at Mia’s alma mater, Boston College, and her lone son still in high school. She has published more than twenty books of LGBTQ romance when not editing National Honor Society essays, offering opinions on college and law school applications, helping to create dance bios, and reviewing English papers. Her husband of twenty-five years has been told by many that he has the patience of Job, but don’t ask Mia about this, as it is a sensitive subject.

Mia focuses her stories on the emotional growth of troubled young people and their relationships. She has a great affinity for the tortured hero in literature, and as a teen, Mia filled spiral-bound notebooks with tales of tortured heroes and stuffed them under her mattress for safekeeping. She is thankful to NineStar Press for providing her with an alternate place to stash her stories.

Her books have been featured in Kirkus Reviews magazine, and have won Rainbow Awards for Best Transgender Contemporary Romance and Best YA Lesbian Fiction, a Reader Views’ Book by Book Publicity Literary Award, the Jack Eadon Award for Best Book in Contemporary Drama, an Indie Fab Award, and a Royal Dragonfly Award for Cultural Diversity, among other awards.

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.

3.5 Stars Review by Lisa Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Reading the blurb for The Art of Hero Worship by Mia Kerick, I thought it was going to be a different type of storyline. The beginning had me sitting on the edge of my seat gripping my tablet. As in today's day and age, with these horrible shootings, this story starts off gripping. But as the story unfolded and concentrated more on the M/M romance, I felt it was missing a little something with regards to the tragic situation and the healing of that outcome. The storyline moved along at a quick pace and at times I felt it was a bit rushed. No slow build or lasting touches, just a quickie and it's over onto the next scene. I did like how Liam, in turn, had to face his own stuff and that Jason turned around and had to save him. Flipping script that way made this story more enjoyable and the title of the book more meaningful. The blurb of the story gives all the highlights of this book with little more to go on, in my opinion.

This was a brilliant book. It was written gorgeously, with a fantastic blend between raw, gritty fear and sensual passion. This read started out with a morbid, but very realistic event. From this event we flow through all of the emotions with swift, unrelenting speed. As the characters try to deal with the aftermath of the event, they turn to each other for the support they need, the support of someone who has seen dark things, someone who had actually been through what they had. This led to so much more. I loved our two main characters. They we developed exceptionally well. They had depth, emotion, passion and were good people. The author really built them throughout the read, giving me the opportunity to dive right in and be a part of their story. The passion that was built up in this story was fantastic. It had a raw quality to it that really touched on points that a lot of people could connect with. They had problems with each other and and with what they had started, but they felt so strongly that they could not stay away. That tension, the feeling that they had to have each other, to be close. Overall,this was a great book. I truly enjoyed the author's work and look forward to reading more. ** I received this book for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
