Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende


Mika is a young author who loves to write about love, in all its shapes and colors, and who can't quite seem to settle on one genre. Among her works are contemporary relationship dramas with queer protagonists, as well as fantasy-esque romance adventures, along with upcoming novels that fall in closer to science-fiction and action categories.



She lives in a tiny apartment with her spoiled cat, while trying to make sense of the adult world. She also has a weakness for chocolate, movies, and superheroes.

Sweaters & Cigarettes is her first published novel, Just Stay is her second, and her third, Branded, is a fantasy-esque romance adventure.

You can find Mika at her website, on Facebook, as well as Twitter and Goodreads. You can contact her at authormikafox@gmail.com.

One of the best ya-lovestories I read in a long time 6. März 2014
Von Fr. Müller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I already started typing this comment four times and still don't know how to phrase, how wonderful this story is.
It's a story about finding love. Of course it is; that's what young adult fiction is all about; right?
But it's so much more.
It's a story about how love can help your significant other,how it helps yourself; a story about standing up for what you believe in and about friendship and care; a story about family and problems, about neglect and hurt, about growing up and staying true to yourself.

I'm not even close to high school age anymore, and still Mika manages to make you relive this time, feel with the main characters and understand their troubles and feelings, even if they behave like unreasonable children some of the time (because let's be honest; we all did).
While in many ya-books I find the main characters to become annoying because of their troubles and their unreasonable behaviour and their whining, this book manages to not only make the characters relatable to young adults, "older" adults will be just as enraptured with the love between those two, will be happy for the friendship and feel with them in their times of troubles.

Von A. Lew - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Mika's tale of Theo and Max is original and will have you hooked by the end of the first chapter. She weaves an deep and vivid tale of two teens who end up falling in love unexpectedly. I definitely would recommend.

Good and bad, and some possible spoilers 21. September 2014
Von Korrigan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Okay, this is a tough review to write. Let me say upfront I think the author is talented. In fact when I started reading this I thought: wow, aren't I lucky to have found a new author. However, there are problems for me as a reader with this novel.

The premise is simple, two teenagers (both 18) meet in high school and slowly (or quickly depending on your point of view) fall in love. They have sex, and here I will give the author full marks for so beautifully handling Theo's nervousness over time, and how sweetly Max handles Theo's nerves and their budding relationship. This part of the book and the relationship was beautifully done in my opinion.

Yes, there are problems for the couple, though one I found very refreshing: Theo's parents aren't concerned he is gay, they're more concerned about the 'type' of boy he's hanging out with, and the effect he is having on Theo's behaviour. I really liked that over the usual -- how dare you be gay trope.

To begin with I thought this book was set in 'Anywhereville' USA. The setting was very vague and I couldn't get a handle on it, it was unsettling. For example Theo and Max's PDAs at high school and at the mall seemed highly unlikely. I believe the writer is Swedish, and it would have been wonderful have this book with a Swedish setting. The vague 'nowheresville' feeling jarred me out of the book on several occasions. For example Theo makes an odd observation in the middle of winter that it was completely dark by 7 p.m.. I live in Australia, it's dark here in the middle of winter by 5 p.m., what is strange about it being completely dark at 7 p.m. in the middle of winter in a climate where it snows heavily? Exactly where we they living? I couldn't get a handle on it, and it kept taking me out of the book, a bad thing. There were a number of those jarring moments.

The book is far too long, sorry it is. The book needed an editor to rein it in and cut out a large number of repetitive scenes. It needed t be shorter, tighter. I finally started skimming at around the 75% mark, and it is a credit to the author that I didn't start doing that earlier. Because yes, the writer can write, and she's created some lovely characters, Theo and Max are great, loved little brother Riley. It also needed an editor to cut out annoying word repetition. It got to the point that if someone was 'carding' someone else's hair one more time I was going to throw my Kindle, it was that annoying And 'carding' wasn't the only word that was used far too often. This novel just plain needed an editor to shape this into a great book.

Yes, I know I'm the only one at this point who has not given it five stars. I had a look at the other reviewers, because the whole nothing but five star reviews confused me, after I read it. I think I have an answer, but I will leave that to others to have a closer look.

This is a young author with talent and promise, and one I hope to read again. However, I needed to give my honest opinion here. I hope the author continues to write, I hope she hires a great editor.

Interesting idea, but amateurish writing skills 18. November 2014
Von David D. Evseeff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Not a bad story, but the author's overuse of commas and random, constant changing of verb tenses is very distracting and amateurish (and lazy). A decent editor would go a long way toward making this more readable.

Oh, where to start... 10. März 2014
Von B. Doe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is an amazing read and all around joy. Once I began to read I just couldn't help myself. It showed the struggles of two teenage boys finding love where it was least expected. I'm sure that once you pick it up you won't stop until the end. I know I didn't. I recommend this story to anyone who loves a tasteful high school romance. I hope to see more by this author in the near future.
