Meet Miriam Herin

Award winning novelist, Miriam Herin has earned three academic degrees in English literature and taught Composition and Literature at two uni versities and three colleges.

Between stints in graduate school, she spent three years as a social worker in a children’s institution, which took her into poverty situations and shacks. She was on the editorial staffs of Good Housekeeping Magazine and the Winston-Salem Journal, and for a number of years, shefree-lanced as a writer, editor, public relations consultant and producer of films and videos for non-profit organizations. Her first novel Absolution is set at the time of the Vietnam War, and although not based on her years with refugees from that war, the novel was certainly sparked by that experience. Her second book, A Stone for Bread, written more than twenty years ago but only published in 2015, grew from her literary background and her concern for issues of justice and our human capacity for evil. www.miriamherin.com
