All of the things about Miranda…
What aliases do you have?
I’ve gone by a number of things. Atkeisson is the most common alias, but lately it’s been mirandamojo. I’ve also been known as Jewels, Eiona, and Mojo, obviously. You can call me any of these or simply, Miranda. You can find out more about me as Mojo here.
Where are you from?
I am from Dallas, Texas. Specifically, I am in North Dallas, rather than just being in the metroplex. I love city life. I used to live in the countryside, and it just wasn’t for me. The city life, however, is full of life, bustling, and busy!
Why do you write?
I write because I am a writer. Whether this talent and skill takes me anywhere in life, it doesn’t matter. I write because I can, because I am.
What is the most important thing about you that we should know?
The most important thing you need to know about me is that I am a fighter. I don’t mean cage-fights or physical violence. I mean, emotionally and spiritually, I don’t give up. I am a fighter. A survivor.
Who do you wake up for every day?
My kiddo, and myself.
Do you have a favorite genre of music?
I seem to really dig the Indie / Acoustic scene, but I really enjoy all kinds of music. There’s very little I don’t enjoy. (Catie, I’ve even given Grunge a new try! Hah!)
Do you have a favorite book?
I have a top three list, in no particular order, because picking a favorite is too difficult: The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, and The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult.
Do you have a favorite movie?
Juno. She is my spirit animal in almost all things, but especially humor and attitude.
The Sound of Music. I could watch this musical forever and ever.
