Ruth Miranda is a Portugal born and raised author who feels more comfortable around words than people, especially if those words happen to be in English, a lnbguage she once taught for a living - amongst other varied jobs. She started making up stories in her head as a child, to put herself to sleep, but the stories kept growing with her, so eventually, they needed to be put to paper. Author of two paranormal urban fantasy series and a cozy mystery, it's among witches and vampires Ruth Miranda feels more at home with, but the lure of other genres does not pass her by. Her published work includes The Preternatural Series and Blood Trilogy, and when she's not working on her novels, she can be found styling, photographing and editing dishes for her food blog. You can find her being social on Instagram under the handle @kitchenwitchmiranda, where she shares snippets of upcoming and published work along with teasers of her food.
