About Miranda

Miranda is the acclaimed author of seven novels, most recently The Fairy Visions of Richard Dadd, which was chosen by the Royal Academy Magazine as one of their six Christmas books in December 2013. Hilary Mantel has written of her work, “Miller’s intricate fictions are lit by the dark flicker of a strong and original imagination.” She has also written a book of short stories about Saudi Arabia, A Thousand and One Coffee Mornings, which was nominated for the Macmillan Silver Pen Prize, and a book of interviews with homeless women.

Miranda has taught English as a Foreign Language and English as a Second Language at all levels in Italy, Libya Saudi Arabia and Japan and has also taught Creative Writing for the Workers’ Educational Association and Practical Writing for Kellogg College, Oxford. From 2013–15 she was Royal Literary Fund Fellow at the Courtauld Institute and she also works as a Reader and Mentor for the Literary Consultancy.
