Miriam Smith


To write or not to write. It isn't so much a question as it is a need. With so many characters vying for a chance for their story to be told, it's little wonder this California native took the plunge and penned a short romance.

Miriam finds pleasure in bringing her characters to life, giving them a chance to tell their story as only they can. She writes what interests her--contemporary and, most recently, sci-fi/fantasy--and always ensures her characters find the happily-ever-after they rightfully deserve.

Smashwords book reviews by Miriam Smith

  • Unforgiven Pleasure on Dec. 27, 2010

    Very well written. I've read this book at least a dozen times since I've downloaded it. Thank you for a great short!
  • Black Moon (Moon Trilogy Part I) on Dec. 27, 2010

    I love Isabella's strength. Right from the beginning, it's clear she's not weak or a pushover. She's firm in her purpose, never losing sight of the job she's been sent to do. And Donovan's perfect as her mate. He trusts her judgment, doesn't attempt to talk her down when it seems she might be making a huge mistake. A terrific read. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of this trilogy. Well done!
  • Amber Moon (Moon Trilogy, Part II) on Dec. 28, 2010

    The theme carries from the first book - the retrieval of a particular item - and the characters are terrific. The references to book one are great, short but relevant to the story. Thank you for a well-written second book in this series. Can't wait for the third!
  • Silver Moon (Moon Trilogy Part III) on Jan. 10, 2011

    A terrific end to this trilogy! All three books are great reads individually and as a collection.
  • The Vampire Across the Hall on Jan. 14, 2011
    (no rating)
    I really enjoyed this book. I kept smiling 'cause it's sweet and amusing. @Ernest: 155cm is about 61in. So 5'1" I guess.
  • Kate and Ben on Jan. 14, 2011

    A very touching story. It's short but packed with so much.
  • The Games We Play on Jan. 14, 2011

    I loved reading this!
  • An Unusual Cupid on Jan. 31, 2011

    Wow! Didn't see that twist! Great read!
  • Softly on Feb. 03, 2011

    Incredibly emotional. Great story!
  • Is There Any Way Out? on Feb. 05, 2011

    Thank you. This hit home in so many ways. Although this is a work of fiction, it rings true for so many men and women. Hopefully they find that one thing worth living for, just like Rose did.
  • To the Meadow's Edge on Feb. 15, 2011

    I like it. Will you write a continuation?
  • The Silver Lining on Feb. 17, 2011

    Beautifully written. The memory of her child is so vividly described and her emotions are fairly dripping from the story. Great writing. Thank you for such a great story.
  • End of Turn on April 07, 2011

    Thank you for such a terrific flash fiction! The ending had me re-reading it and then laughing!
  • Inspection on April 07, 2011

    Made me smile and chuckle. Good writing!
  • The Showdown on April 07, 2011

    I guess he wasn't ready to die??? LOL Very good short.
  • Taking a Chance on April 10, 2011

    This was an amazing story to read. I enjoyed the buildup and how it wasn't just meet-for-the-first-time, falling-into-bed sex. I agree with Ernest - very well done!
  • Blow Me, Baby on June 01, 2011

    Great plot and awesome twist!
  • Leather, Lace and Rock-n-Roll (SEALS, Inc., Book 1) on Sep. 13, 2011

    Well written story. Characters are well developed, the plot moves seamlessly. Can't wait for Cameron's story. Highly recommended book!
  • Quittin' Time: A Short Story on Dec. 10, 2011

    This is a well-written, well-developed, sweet short story. The dynamics of their relationship, the complexity of her thinking, the ease of his acceptance of her - combined, they make for one great read.
  • The Reluctant Bride on June 27, 2012

    A short, sweet and thoroughly engaging historical that made me smile, made me wonder, and me laugh. Well developed characters and a smooth plot made this story fun to read.
