I'm a writer living on a small ranch in Canada with my husband, dogs and cats.
I write about creating your best life by being unapologetically yourself.
Miriam Verheyden has been a lumberjack, church organist, veggie washer and bookseller. She lived for six months in a hotel in Wales, sat once around a campfire with a convicted (but innocent) murderer, and is currently learning how to drive a tractor.
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 works as an x-ray technologist by day and writes by night. She 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.
