Miranda Owen

I work in a library and that helps my book addiction. My favorite genres are romance (just about any kind) and cozy mysteries. I also enjoy true crime books - especially time periods 1950 & earlier. I like anti-heroes, personal journey stories, character-driven stories, and ones with strong, smart female characters. I also enjoy graphic novels & manga. I am in several online book groups.
