I am an author and dramatist. I grew up in London before studying English at Oxford and Playwriting Studies at Birmingham University. I now live in the Vale of Glamorgan in south Wales with my husband and our two daughters.

My travel and food memoir Fragrant Heart was published by Summersdale in 2014. My first novel Miss Treadway and the Field of Stars is published by 4th Estate (UK), Harper Books (US) and HarperCollins (Canada).

I'm a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4 (sometimes as Miranda Davies) and I'm currently undertaking a PhD in the history of BBC radio adaptation at Cardiff University. I'm represented for fiction and non fiction by Caroline Hardman at Hardman & Swainson and I'm @MirandaEmmerson on Twitter and Instagram.

Miranda Emmerson, Miss Treadway and the Field of Stars

“I feel as if I'm disappearing. I wake, I work, I eat, I sleep. No family, no great career. I could disappear tomorrow, like Iolanthe”
Miranda Emmerson, Miss Treadway and the Field of Stars

“She honestly could not tell if she loved London or loathed it. For she could not decide for herself what London was at all.”
