More About the Author
Miranda Dickinson has always had a head full of stories. Born in 1973 in Wolverhampton, she grew up in Kingswinford and dreamed of one day writing a book that would reach the heady heights of Kingswinford Library... Her first novel, Fairytale of New York (2009) was discovered on Authonomy.com - HarperCollins' site for unpublished authors. Within three weeks of its release, Fairytale of New York had entered the Sunday Times Top Ten Bestsellers List, where it remained for five weeks - making it the world's first crowd-sourced bestseller. The novel was also shortlisted for the RNA's Romantic Novel of the Year Award 2010 at the Pure Passion Awards.
Miranda's second novel, Welcome to My World (2010) became her second Sunday Times Bestseller within its first month of publication and will be translated in two countries to date. She is currently writing her third novel, It Started With a Kiss (available to pre-order now and due for publication 10th November 2011), and is keeping a yearlong video diary with exclusive extracts, insights and news about the book, from initial draft to published novel.
