Hi! I'm Miriam Landis, a Pacific Northwest Ballet School faculty member in Seattle, WA. I spend time on ballet, books, and my family, and love to educate and spread enthusiasm for what brings me joy.

I'm the author of the middle-grade novel Lauren in the Limelight, and two young adult novels, Girl in Motion and Girl on Pointe (previously published as Breaking Pointe). Here are some other things I've been: a professional ballerina with Miami City Ballet, a student at the School of American Ballet, a 2022 LitCamp fellow, an assistant editor at Simon & Schuster, Hyperion, and the Amazon Books team, a Stanford grad, an online media manager for Island Books, and a bunch of other stuff. When not writing, I can be found teaching and enjoying life in the Pacific Northwest.
