Book loving, writer, who likes to read several books at a time because she's a bit crazy like that.

Go-to authors are Stephen King, James Herbert, Terry Pratchett, Raymond Feist and Clive Barker, with Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, Robert A Heinlein and lots of others in between.

It's not so much about loving particular genres, as much as finding stories and characters to engage and resonate with - but I will always head for Horror, Thrillers, and Science Fiction, before any others (my guilty pleasure is Self-Help.)

I write dark stuff, sci-fi stuff, surreal stuff, psychological stuff and a mixture of all four.

I also write as M K Boers

I have a newsletter, which you can sign up for here.

I'm on Facebook and Twitter

Mid-Week flash on hiatus until mid-August

With having bought a new house, & all the renovation work we are doing and moving at the end of this month, I am sorry to say that I have to put #MidWeekFlash on hiatus until the middle of August. My head is so full I just can't quite manage it at the moment.

This is only the second time I have done this - last time was back in 2017 (wow I've been doing this for longer than I thought!).

Miranda’s Recent Updates

Kevin Hammond
Kevin Hammond is starting Sleep: Just started reading. Brilliant, devastating prologue
Kevin Hammond
Kevin Hammond is on page 100 of 270 of Sleep: A very deep and involving story. I love the trial because the writer has incorporated all points of view and the motivations of each of the characters while explaining their conflicts with each other.
Pretty impressive.
Kevin Hammond
Kevin Hammond is on page 116 of 270 of Sleep: Sounds so realistic, in the court trial. We love the outrage of the evil doer and every gory detail of their crimes. But then theres the family and friends of the accused and their stories. It's another dimension this story covers so well.
Infestation by Miranda Kate
"Roderick ask Hanson if Brandon come back yet from the power station yet?
They had to be careful other infected survivors might attack them.
Warners Dealership. Maybe there was still a vehicle left.
Bobby & Steve greeted Daniels & Hanson.

This book is a gore fest, I mean serious blood and guts to the extreme. You could read the pleasure the authors found in writing those parts, and in some ways the story felt constructed round those parts. Sometimes it was so extreme it almost felt hu ...more
