She grew up in south-west London before studying English at Oxford and Playwriting Studies at Birmingham. In her twenties she edited and wrote for charity and magazine websites, and scripted audio magazines for people with a learning disability. She has travelled extensively in Europe, North America and Asia. She lives in Wales with her husband and their two daughters.  

She's a regular contributor to BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio 4 Extra (sometimes as Miranda Davies) where she specialises in adapting books for dramatic serialisation.

She is currently undertaking a PhD at Cardiff University looking at the history of BBC radio adaptation examining the dramatic adaptation of un-English writing for an Anglocentric medium.

She has published one work of non fiction - the travelogue Fragrant Heart - and one work of fiction - the novel Miss Treadway & the Field of Stars.
