Miranda specializes in travel writing with a focus on cultural aspects including the truck driving industry, ecotourism, road trips, solo female travel, and culinary delights from every plate on earth. As a freelance writer Miranda is equally interested in all aspects of creative nonfiction, whether writing product descriptions, press releases, website content or rock-and-roll trivia questions.
She is trained as a certified librarian practitioner, which combines her love of community with reading. Since January 2015 Miranda has worked for Randall-Reilly as a web content writer. She has written more than 150,000 words, and counting, for various truck driving job recruitment sites. Miranda works closely with a team via Randall-Reilly in order to produce shareable and knowledge-rich content for their sites.
Miranda has written travel articles for USA Today, as well as green living articles for the United Nations of Eco-Friendly Citizens Forum. Many of her articles have been recirculated across multiple channels, such as one of her travel articles, "Puerta Vallarta Excursions," which was reprinted by Puerta Vallarta's Banderas News.
In 2013 Miranda was the community manager and writer for a social website for sociology. She managed new writers for the site, as well as all social media profiles. Additionally she wrote fresh academic level content for the site. Since she took on the project in February 2013, Miranda and her team brought the site from a 200+ ranking on Google to 30th.
Also in 2013, Miranda created a webinar about blogging for public libraries, which she was selected to present as part of the Nebraska Library Commission's Big Talks from Small Libraries. The presentation on social media is available on the N.L.C. website.
Miranda was a regular writer for the Platte Enterprise in Platte, South Dakota from 2012 to 2014. She wrote a column, as the Loquacious Librarian, in reference to her role as librarian at the Platte Public Library. The column included community programming, book reviews, and information about upcoming library events.
When Miranda is not working on content writing, she is writing fantasy fiction with a horror bent. Her novel, "In Deep," is a modern day Southern Gothic tale that weaves Miranda's Southern Appalachian roots through a tangled mass of the fictional community of Wilewood Hollow. Miranda is also writing the first draft of a fantasy tale about Alice a giant hunter living in a dystopian future. This story has its roots in Maya creation mythos and "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."
