Similarly to my top ten books of 2020, I decided to create a list of authors that I’m giving the spotlight to this year. I may not have necessarily read their books this year, but I’ve seen what has been published and what kind of reactions they’ve gotten.
I have read these authors and I’m really looking forward to what they come up with next.
10. Mia Knight
Mia Knight is the author of the Crime Lord Series and Singed Series. She writes dark, contemporary romances that will make you question your beliefs and leave you feeling drained and emotionally bereft. If you like your men dark with questionable morals and a possessive edge, you may have come to the right place.
When Mia isn’t writing, she’s exploring. She prefers traveling by car or train, but will take boats or planes when there’s no other choice. She loves coffee, fast food, daydreaming, and the sound of rain storms. She is constantly shadowed by her dogs who don’t judge her when she laughs and cries with the voices in her head. Mia’s also a notorious hermit so please be patient if she doesn’t get back to you promptly on social media.

4. Dawn Hosmer
I am a lifelong resident of Ohio. My husband, Steve, and I have been married for 18 years and we have 4 children, although 3 of them are now adults. I have spent my career in social work and have a passion for helping others. I was diagnosed with Crohns disease 15 years ago which has been both a blessing and a curse. My illness has prevented me from continuing to work (the curse) which allows me to pursue my passion for writing with many less time-restrictions and focus my energy on being a wife and mother (the blessing).
My writing is often sparked by a true story which creates a cast of fictional characters/situations in my mind. In addition, I sprinkle pieces of people’s true -life stories they’ve shared with me throughout the years into my fiction as a way to honor many of the tragedies and joys that people live through.
In addition to God, my family and writing, I love coffee, traveling, reading, HGTV and naps. I believe that a story lives in all of us and that it’s important to share ours with others, never knowing who will benefit from what each of us has to say. Sharing our stories not only helps others, it changes us as well.
