About Miranda Heaney

I was born and raised on a working farm in Wagga Wagga, NSW, where I learnt to ride horses and motorbikes, how to shoot plates hanging in trees, how to milk cows and drench sheep. When I was 10 my family moved to the Mornington Peninsula in VIC. I have always loved writing, and had written many short stories and poems in my childhood; but it was during my high school years under the guidance of my literature teachers that my passion for writing flourished. My favourite form of literature is poetry, but I have immensly enjoyed discovering the power and complexity of novellas. I am currently studying literature at Monash University.

Chasing Violet: Whence We Came is the very rare book that kept me glued to it from beginning to end. The dramatic story is very well written by Miranda Heaney with just the right amount of fantasy, romance, and suspense that had me curling my toes in excitement. All of the characters, my favorite being Violet of course, were unique and well developed as you go through the book. This was actually my first time reading anything from Miranda Heaney and I must say I am very impressed.

Chasing Violet is a refreshing book that's part fantasy, part love story, and part adventure novel. From the first sentence, "And it was always when Roe was on duty that they seemed to find the bodies," I was hooked. Seriously, how killer of an opening line is that?

Our main character Violet is seventeen years old and going through more than the usual growing pains. Though this is appropriate for young adults, Violet and Tristan and the gang are compelling characters no matter what age you are (I'm 30 and I loved it). Plus, Heaney approaches the book with a keen eye and a fun sense of humor. Highly recommended entertaining read to cozy up in your armchair with.

Oh! My God. I love this book. I bought this book after a friend has told me a lot about it. My friend always talked about its suspense, action and diction. I decided to give it a try. Infact, I am not dissapointed. I thought my friend was just talking. When I read it, I concluded that one cannot that one cannot but talk about it. Good diction, wonderful character development and suspense. I love it.

Review by: Meg Alexander on Aug. 14, 2014 :
I loved this story, and found myself really caring about the characters and how events would affect them. This author has a knack for quickly creating people who are both familiar, memorable and highly relatable.
I also loved the creation of a fantasy world set in an unspecified time.
The descriptions were so vivid, I could really 'see' the train of caravans, the meeting on the summit, 'hear' the sounds of the horses, the wind, the crackle of flames. I can't wait for the sequel!
