“At a young, impressionable age, Miranda was my muse, my mentor, and a major influence on what I put on paper. Many days, my words and thoughts drifted into her corner of the world as troubled tumbleweeds and bad static. I was easily distracted and unsettled by my surroundings. But with clarity and grace, she picked up my frequencies and ultimately transformed them into something better. She is a huge talent. Words roll off her silver tongue effortlessly, and anyone is wiser to have heeded her advice. There are many days when writing fills a void in me I didn’t know was possible, and I owe her a great debt of gratitude for it.” – Ben Aldis
