I write short stories, novels and poetry for children, teens and adults. My books are realistic stories and my characters are ordinary people faced with dilemmas who have to dig deep to find the hero inside themselves. I like writing about secrets and the things that must stay hidden to solve a problem. Ultimately, I write because I have something to say and want to communicate with my readers.

I have a two book deal with American publisher Holiday House!!
They will publish HIDDEN, my book about two teens who rescue an asylum seeker from the sea, (September 2016) and BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, a brand new Y.A. novel about a girl whose mother is a hoarder, ( Spring 2017). Mary Cash, editor-in-chief at Holiday House,said, "Miriam's writing speaks directly and urgently to young people about subjects which matter to them and the world. We are delighted to welcome her to Holiday House.”The deal was announced in The Bookseller.
Danish publisher, Turbine, have bought the rights to HIDDEN. I'm delighted that I will be published soon in Denmark and look forward to seeing the new cover too!
