About Miranda Mayer

I feel at home the most at home in quiet, natural places. I reside in the Oregon cascades and Mount Hood region, the lush forests and roar of the river are my respite and my inspiration. I ride horses, I write (naturally), I dabble in art but I am mostly a homebody. I am married, and live with my dogs, cat and husband in a really small cabin... seriously. Our 'furnace' is a propane stove with fake ceramic logs. I am a proud member of the Small House Society and enjoy our humble life quite a bit. I dream of someday owning and running a riding club again. I help with book reviews for my friend, I providing proofreading and some editing for other writers in the writing group, and I hope someday to get into publishing.

Review by: Odyssey Reviews on April 18, 2011 : star star star star
As a reviewer of Miranda's prior, more serious work, I knew that Blackroot if anything would be readable. It's a lot darker than I expected. Miranda told me that Blackroot was the source for many of the themes in Tinna's Promise, and I discovered this was true. There are many similarities, but the core of each story is quite separate. I think for a book that hasn't been professionally edited, it is a markedly decent thing, but I must say that it's more of a skeleton of a book than a full novel. It's not padded enough and it feels a bit rushed. But all in all, I actually enjoyed the complexity of this novel, and the strange likability of two characters that one would not normally write. I think this is a good book to offer for free, and a good book to introduce readers to the style of what I believe to be a creditable writer. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys strange grisly tales.
