Red, White & Royal Blue is coming to Amazon Prime on Friday, August 11, 2023. The queer rom-com based on the very popular book by Casey McQuiston is finally here, and if the number of people who have read and love the book is any indication, this is going to be one of Amazon’s most popular movies yet.
The book tells the story of the American president’s son Alex Claremont-Diaz and the Prince of England, Henry, as they start off as sworn enemies only to find out that they are 100% in love with each other.
While they try to keep it a secret at first, eventually the story comes out, and the press has a field day. Not to mention their respective families. Imagine if this happened today. It would be chaos.
But while this is undoubtedly their most famous book, has Casey McQuiston written any other books since Red, White & Royal Blue?
Has Casey McQuiston written more books?
The answer is yes! They have written two other queer romances and also had a story included in a 2022 anthology. The first book after Red, White, & Royal Blue was One Last Stop. It is the story of two women (August and Jane) who fall in love, but Jane has been transported from the past. And now August must do everything she can to help Jane get back to her time. Doesn’t spell great things for their burgeoning love, but in this story, anything is possible when it comes to love.
McQuiston’s next novel is a young adult book and called I Kissed Shara Wheeler. It tells the story of Chloe Green who is set on “winning” high school by becoming the valedictorian. Her only competition is Shara Wheeler. But things go awry when Shara kisses Chloe and then completely disappears. Chloe must come together with the other people Shara kissed in order to find out what happened to her.
Casey McQuiston was also featured in the anthology Eternally Yours. It includes a bunch of authors who write love stories about the paranormal and supernatural. Besides McQuiston, it also includes stories by Kalynn Bayron, Kendare Blake, Kat Cho, Julian Winters, Hafsah Faizal, and so many more. It’s edited by Patrice Caldwell.
Maybe one day all these other stories will be made into movies as well!
