Authonomy reader reviews: 'This is so well written, such an enjoyable read. The characters are all distinctive, leaping right off the page.
'This is warm, sweet and frothy as a cappuccino with just enough of the bitter side of life coming through. I love the juxtaposition of the English rose amidst bright, brittle New Yorkers - each of your characters is clearly established and distinctly voiced.'
'This book is fabulous. Your writing style is wonderful and you have vivid characters that a reader can really fall in love with.'
'Miranda - put succinctly, your writing SPARKLES.''

Miranda Dickinson has always had a head full of stories. Coming from a creative family where stories and songs were always present, it was perhaps inevitable that she would end up adoring words. A songwriter for over 15 years, Miranda has successfully penned over thirty songs. Miranda began writing in earnest four years ago with her first novel, Coffee at Kowalski's - a romantic comedy set in New York's Upper West Side. This was spotted on HarperCollins' site for unpublished authors, Authonomy.com at the end of 2008 and will be released by Avon (part of HC) as Fairytale of New York ...More About Miranda Dickinson
