I'm a writer and x-ray technologist living on a small ranch in Canada with my husband, dogs, and too many birds.
Miriam Verheyden has been a lumberjack, church organist, veggie washer and bookseller. She works as an x-ray technologist by day and writes by night.
During her downtime Miriam is most likely found either in her hammock with a book in one hand and a drink in the other, or kayaking across one of the many beautiful lakes of BC together with her corgi Lily.
A few people have made the mistake of telling her that she looks like Dakota Johnson, and you better believe that she will ride this train forever.
She grew up in Germany and dropped out of college at age 23 to move to Canada to be with her much-older, father-of-4, not-quite-divorced-yet lover. It's a great story with a happy ending, so she wrote her first book Let's Pretend This is Normal about it.
Her second book Quit the Hustle is based on her experience of recovering from burnout through overcoming the need to improve everything about herself and embrace life with all its imperfections.
Miriam believes that being true to yourself is your superpower, and she writes stories about how owning your truth will set you free.
Miriam is currently working on her third book/first work of fiction: a thriller set in a small town about unusual female friendships, disappearing young men - and a killer on the loose.
