Miriam currently lives in Maine, making occasional trips to London where her daughter lives. She is originally from Wisconsin and received her Masters in Landscape Architecture from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1985. Following graduation, she initiated redevelopment programs in Indiana and Virginia then worked as an urban planning consultant for several years in Florida. In 1999 she moved back to Wisconsin where she owned and operated an antiques shop for five years. In 2005 she sold her business and bought a farm house in rural Georgia. There she had space at a designer mall, sold pecans from her trees and otherwise devoted her time to writing. Answering a life-long desire to live in New England or Nova Scotia, in 2009 she moved to Maine where she continues to write, inspired by its scenic beauty and the smell of the ocean.
