Kayla Perrin has a Bachelor of Arts in English and Sociology and a Bachelor of Education, having entertained the idea of becoming a teacher--but she always knew she wanted to be a writer. Teachers were being laid off in Toronto when Kayla graduated with her B. Ed. Frustrated, she used her time to pursue her life-long dream of becoming a published author and proved that dreams can come true! Indeed, not landing a teaching job was a blessing in disguise. Today she is a multi-published, award-winning USA Today and Essence ® bestselling author with close to 50 novels and novellas in print as of August 2013.
In Kayla's 15 years in the publishing business, she has been a trailblazer in the African-American fiction arena. She has written for many major publishers including St. Martin's Press, HarperCollins Publishers, and Harlequin. She is published in suspense, romance, children's and general women's fiction. She has been featured on radio and on television shows such as Entertainment Tonight Canada, Who's Afraid of Happy Endings (Bravo documentary), The Writer's Corner (South Florida), CHCH TV, CBC's TEST THE NATION game show, the Gill Deacon Show and the CTV News. She has been featured in Ebony magazine, Romantic Times magazine, The South Florida Business Journal, The Toronto Star, The Hamilton Spectator and many other publications. In October 2007, she was featured in the Italian version of Vanity Fair after speaking at a women's conference in Matera, Italy. Her works have been translated into Italian, German, Spanish and Portuguese.
In 2001, after only four years in the business, Kayla was awarded the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for excellence in multicultural romance. In 2007, her novel, MIDNIGHT DREAMS, was the Borders bestselling multicultural romance of the year. She has twice had books voted onto Romance Writers of America's Top Ten Favorite Books of the Year list. In 2011, she received the prestigious Harry Jerome Award in Canada for excellence in the arts.
