About the Book

Calista "Callie" Fuentes is an aspiring historian and a museum assistant in New York, working really hard to finance her family back home in the Philippines. Born and raised in Manila, she first came to the United States of America when she was 18. With the help of her older brother, Gabe, she was able to experience the "dream" that only a few of her peers will ever experience. Also coming from a conservative and traditional family, she has always tried her best to walk away from love. Not until she met the overconfident and charming Luca Moretti, who was three years her junior. Meanwhile, the charismatic Luca was an aspiring chef working at their family restaurant. After experiencing all sorts of ups and downs with each other, they will be left with a very difficult decision that may make or break their relationship. A story of love, life, struggles, decisions, family, and the American dream. How long would you wait for a love worth risking?

About the Author

Mich Mercado was born and raised in Dapitan City, Zamboanga del Norte, but is now based in Pagadian City, Zamboanga del Sur, in the northern part of Mindanao in the Philippines. She’s a graduate of the Bachelor of Science program in tourism management, but she has always been passionate about the arts. When she was in high school, her cousin gave her a copy of "The Little Prince," which sparked her interest in writing. She had a lifelong fascination with romance literature and cinema as a child. Additionally, because she was raised in the Philippines, she has always been familiar with the Filipino-American ideal and has observed others in her community taking a similar route. By incorporating this idea with a beautiful but motivational love story, Mich developed A Million Miles.
