The Author

Miranda Doyle, in her own words... 


Represented by the brilliant Anna Webber of United Agents, and published by the very best kind of editor, Mitzi Angel at Faber & Faber

Miranda teaches Memoir and Life Writing at the Faber Academy, and will mentor one of Spread the Word's Life Writing 2018 prize winners.

Selected for the Writers' Pool in 2004, Writers' Centre Norwich Escalator Scheme in 2005 and awarded Arts Council England support in 2010 for the novel 'An Empty Quarter' she teaches creative writing as part of the Adult Education programme at Hills Road Sixth Form College learning as much from other writers as they ever learn from her. Talking about autobiography with her philosophy students was the inspiration for this book.


With thanks to Norman Ullathorne for his beautiful line drawings and those perfect numbers for my truth grid.  Thank you to Victoria Izat and to Lucy Husband for being so generous with their memories,  to Al Downie who was amazingly thoughtful with all his ideas for this website, to Nick Barraclough for creating such lovely audio for 'Ducks' and 'Frigid'. And finally to Steve and Spencer at Mud Kitchen who have put so much work into this site.  It's just how I hoped it would be.
