National bestselling author Mia King is the author of two novels, GOOD THINGS (Berkley, 2007) and SWEET LIFE (Berkley, 2008). Her third novel, TABLE MANNERS, will be published in 2009 by Berkley, an imprint of Penguin USA. King is a fresh, new voice in women's fiction, a "talented author" who has received praise from reviewers and readers alike.
King and her husband live and raise their three children on the island of Hawaii. They moved to Hawaii in 2000 on a whim, selling everything and leaving their corporate jobs behind. They arrived with four suitcases, 30 banker boxes, and a four-digit balance in their bank account (note from Mia: a little more money and some plan of action before you make the move is highly recommended, though desperation is a great motivator).
King attended Miss Porter's School and Wellesley College, graduating from Rice University with a degree in Political Science. She was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and has lived in Texas, Colorado, California, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Hawaii, Hong Kong, and Beijing, China. Her previous careers include tax manager with a Big Six accounting firm, website content copy chief for a major LVMH luxury-branded website, brand manager, life coach, cross-cultural trainer, director for a 2,000 acre retreat center, business owner, and now, author and homeschooling parent.
She is a sought-after speaker and workshop leader on living simply as well as work and parenting. She has been teaching writing and publication workshops on the West Coast and in Hawaii for over 15 years.
