Poetry, books, music and art by Miriam E. Miles.
“Phoenix took me by surprise both visually and intellectually”
“Authentic, transparent and raw”
“I love ‘normal’ poetry, but found that I could appreciate your style ina different way.”
Phoenix is an abstract poetic exploration of acknowledgement, facing the hard stuff and finding healing. Each poem reveals a portion of the road travelled and is a transparent and sincere study of a mind fighting its way free from illness, grabbing hold of spiritual hope and setting itself free.
This collection is focused on the real intersection between mental illness and connecting with spirituality and healing, giving an opportunity to open up the conversation about the power of God that undergirds Miriam’s journey from illness to wellness.
Phoenix is accessible, written in a none-threatening and non- judgmental style. It allows the reader free and open access to embrace Miriam’s journey and connect with their own.
“I love ‘normal’ poetry, but found that I could appreciate your style in a different way.”
“Moving and eloquent. Looking forward to Volume 2!”

Poet, Speaker, Creative
Miriam E. Miles is a writer, speaker, and poet who questions the way mental health, relationship, faith, and physical health intersect, with a particular focus on mental wellness from a Christian perspective. With the intention of drawing people away from the status quo and into a unique view of living life to the fullest she discusses core subjects such as faith, identity, self-worth, mental illness and wellness, and acceptance.
Miriam’s heart is to reach people of all generations, cultures, and walks of life, motivating each one to consider living a deeper faith-based journey and being enabled to take hold of the gift of life and reconciliation God has given us.
She is a wife, mother to two strapping lads, mother-in-law and grandma to two exceptionally transfixing granddaughters. When not writing, Miriam can be found at the piano, in a coffee shop, or wandering down some obscure laneway on a city day-trip.
She is available to speak at your school, church, community or business event and will tailor topics to suit your desired focus.
