Jude Munro, very briefly Mia Kerick’s adult gay romance pen name, writes fictional characters in her adult gay romance novels who are drawn to the beach. They’ve sunbathed on the sands of many alluring East Coast beaches, along with the fantastical beaches in Jude’s books. They’ll answer questions like “Who do you think you are, the sun god?” (which they often resemble)ifthey can hear you over "Boys of Summer" cranking on their headphones. To most of Jude’s men, no shoes and no shirt is reallynot a problem. But even on the sunniest of beach days, the guys in Jude’s books dohave problems… as in, serious relationship issues. Many of which seem insurmountable. And each character must earn his day at the beach. (Yes, there is always a HEA).
