About Me

Author photo - resizedI write contemporary love stories.

Not descriptive enough? Yeah, I figured as much.

To be honest, I can’t pinpoint the year when I read my first romance novel, but I know I had a stash of Harlequin romances during my middle school years. And I remember hiding said romances behind the covers of my Menudo magazines (if you’re not familiar with the boy band Menudo, picture young Ricky Martin in spandex—lots of spandex).

Neither college nor law school could deter me from reading romances, and I’m certain my voracious reading negatively affected how much I absorbed from my classes. In fact, for years, I thought the phrase “talk softly and carry a big stick” was dating advice. Ahem.

In my former life, I practiced law in the nation’s capital. Now that I no longer brave the treacherous commute to D.C., I have ample time to hone my craft and plot stories about smart women and the complicated men who love them. Okay, I’ll be real here: I wear PJs all day and watch more reality television than a network television censor—all in the name of research, of course.

About My Writing

When my characters speak to me, I listen. They tell me how they look, how they talk, and where they want to go. I just follow them on their journeys. One caveat: if my heroine finds herself in doormat territory, I wrangle with her until she grows a backbone.

I strive to write the types of stories I like to read: funny, flirty, and slightly dirty romances that feature strong heroes and heroines with interesting jobs, opinionated friends, and families that meddle in their lives. Luckily for me, my extended family is a reality television show waiting to happen and provides plenty of inspiration for my work.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them.

Official Bio

Mia Sosa was born and raised in New York City. She attended the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Communications and met her own romance hero (spoiler alert: she married him). Mia once dreamed of being a professional singer, but practical considerations (read: the need to generate income) led her to take the law school admissions test instead.

A graduate of Yale Law School, Mia practiced First Amendment and media law in the nation’s capital for ten years before returning to her creative roots. Now she spends most of her days writing contemporary romances about smart women and the complicated men who love them.

Mia lives in Maryland with her husband and two daughters and will forever be on the hunt for the perfect karaoke bar.
