Miranda Paul is a teacher, world traveler, and mother of two. As she raises an international family, her writing goals include depicting diverse characters (and animals!) with positive and sometimes ridiculously funny stories for children. Miranda Paul has served as a volunteer teacher in Gambia, West Africa and also has family scattered around the Caribbean — so she often escapes her Wisconsin homeland for tastes of the tropical life.
Two of Miranda's picture book manuscripts won her the 2012 SCBWI-WI Mentorship award, and her debut picture book, ONE PLASTIC BAG, is forthcoming from Lerner Publishing (Millbrook Press).
Miranda works for-hire writing and editing children's stories for digital and print markets, and has published pieces in national magazines such as POCKETS and TURTLE. She's also finishing up her first YA novel, plans to save the world someday, and loves the serial comma.
