Miriam McNamara was born in Ireland, raised in the Southern US, and is a new resident of the Midwest. She has dressed up as some variation on pirate for Halloween more years than she has not—her favorite still being Rollerskating Pirate, circa 2003. She has an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, where The Unbinding of Mary Reade won the Norma Fox Mazer Award for a YA work-in-progress. She lives in a cozy little house in Minneapolis, but she also calls Asheville, North Carolina home.
