Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

I write novels. My fifth, Fierce Little Thing, a literary psychological thriller, is about a group of five friends raised on a commune-turned-cult in rural Maine, and the terrible thing they do in a last ditch effort to try to save it. Twenty-plus years later, they're scattered to the wind, but someone blackmails them back to the land, where they have to decide how far they'll go to silence them. I've heard the book described as The Girls meets The Interestings, with a bit of I Know What You Did Last Summer thrown in-- and I'll take it! My New York Times bestseller Bittersweet, my play on a modern gothic thriller, is about an outsider who is invited to her idea of paradise-- a lakeside retreat in rural Vermont. But when she digs deeper into her host family's storied past, she discovers some dark secrets, risking her own life. I wrote Bittersweet for people like me, who love The Secret History and The Emperor's Children; it's a literary beach read. My fourth novel, June, is about what happens when Hollywood came to a small town in Ohio in the fifties-- and the legacy of that summer on those character's descendants fifty years later.
