Mia Mitns

For fans of:N.K. Jemisin, Stephanie Meyer, Octavia Butler, J.K. Rowling, J. R. R. Tolkien

Mia Mitns was born in Houston, Texas but grew up in multiple places including California, Colorado, and a few other areas around Texas. She graduated from Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia and Western University in Pomona, California.

Mia started writing poetry and short stories when she was young and continued through high school. In college, she drifted away from writing to focus on her studies in the sciences. Years later, after graduating from Spelman, Mia took a creative writing class that re-ignited her passion for telling stories. She began with random short stories, which led her to revisit poetry. At the time, Mia began to learn the guitar, and so her love of music led her to learn how to write lyrics, which led to songwriting.

After Mia finished graduate school, she was able to write her first novel, Tea Leaf: What Hides Beneath, an urban fantasy story that was born from a strange dream. When she is not writing or reading, she enjoys listening to music, going to concerts, trying to play guitar, playing basketball, and drawing. She lives in Texas with her plants.
