past works

Miranda has worked as a freelance writer and editor for years. Her work has been published in newspapers and magazines such as Pockets and Turtle (U.S. Kids). She’s also worked for app and game companies.

When she visits your school or library, she can talk about what it’s like to have to write something quickly—on deadline—or what it feels like to see a kid playing a video game that she’s helped create! There are a lot of ways that writers tell stories.
