About Me


About Me

My name is Miriam Atkinson and I am a Freelance Writer.

I have a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing and an MA in Creative Writing.

Since I was young I have always been fascinated by creative writing. In particular I am drawn to novel writing and all things fantasy and science-fiction related.

I am always searching for new opportunities to apply my writing skills whether it is for work or for personal projects (I will finish writing that novel one day I swear!)

About the Lair of Reviews

As a student I wrote over 30 articles and reviews for an online magazine called ‘Cuckoo Review’ which has since closed down. In June 2020 I was given kind permission by New Writing North, who ran the magazine, to upload my old reviews to my blog (which at that point existed only as a idea).

Between July and December 2020 all of my older reviews were gradually edited and uploaded. These reviews focus on films, theatre plays and books and cover a range of genres from fantasy to thriller, from coming of age dramas to action-packed adventures and more!

Since then I have been creating new content for the lair with new reviews uploaded every month.

All of the reviews in the lair are my own opinion. Some will be positive, some will be mixed and a very few will be negative. Everyone is different and everyone likes different things. I can promise that all of the reviews will be fair and (hopefully) enjoyable to read.

Special Thanks…
