Long Bio:

Mia P. Manansala is a writer of geeky stories filled with sarcasm, murder, and the occasional Simpsons reference. She is the winner of the 2018 Hugh Holton Award, the 2018 Eleanor Taylor Bland Crime Fiction Writers of Color Award, the 2017 William F. Deeck - Malice Domestic Grant for Unpublished Writers, and the 2016 Mystery Writers of America/Helen McCloy Scholarship. She's also a 2017 Pitch Wars alum and 2018-2019 mentor.

A lover of all things geeky, Mia spends her days procrastibaking, playing JRPGs and dating sims, reading cozy mysteries, and dreaming of becoming best buds with Wonder Woman and Kamala Khan.

When she’s not sassing her ever-so-patient husband, she’s cuddling her dogs Max Power and Bayley Banks (bonus points to those who get the name references) at her home just outside of Chicago.

Mia is quite the joiner, as she is the Secretary of the Mystery Writers of America (Midwest Chapter), and a member of Sisters in Crime, Crime Writers of Color, Banyan Asian American Writers Collective, the Chicago Writers Association, and the Chicago Nerd Social Club.
