Like a lot of people out there, I wanted to be a writer from the time I was young but I was told you couldn’t make a living doing it unless you were Stephen King. Instead, I pursued practical career choices, like theater. And graduate school for degrees that sound really impressive but don’t actually have careers that go with them. I spent a lot of time working as a temp, and at jobs that paid better but that I didn’t enjoy.

So, now I’ve come back to writing. If I’d done that from the beginning, maybe I would be as famous as Stephen King right now. Then I could be writing my books from my own private island in Maine instead of from my dining room table in a very non-coastal part of New England. Maybe next year.

I wrote my first novel, Telling Lies Online, as part of the National Novel Writing Month challenge in 2015. It took a little longer than a month, and some of it was written from the passenger seat of a car while driving through torrential rain coming home after Thanksgiving. If you’ve read the book and there was a part you didn’t like, that’s probably where that bit was written.

Now I have books in four series that I hope offers something for every taste. Please check them out, and if you enjoy them, tell your friends!

Also, I love hearing from readers so if you have any questions, please email me at miranda@mirandamacleod.com.
