Miranda Suri writes speculative fiction, teaches anthropology at Queens College, and goes on archaeological adventures that would make Indiana Jones green with envy. When she’s not curled up with a good book at her Brooklyn apartment, she can be found indulging one of her hobbies, which include cooking, practicing Pilates, and traveling the world.
Her writing has appeared in Mothership Zeta, Flash Fiction Online, Penumbra, Electric Spec, Every Day Fiction, Fictionvale, and Pseudopod.

Miranda’s other interest (which sometimes even intersects with her fiction) is food. She maintains a site devoted to food and cooking called Gluten Free, No Substitutes.
Miranda holds a PhD in Anthropology from the University of Pennsylvania and has published a number of articles (under her maiden name, Miranda Stockett) on her archaeological research in Honduras. One focuses on sex and gender in ancient Mesoamerica, another looks at spatial patterns and social practice, another at ritual and identity in prehistoric Honduras, and another examines the role of social memory in the construction of power strategies. Her latest publication considers how we theorize, analyze, and interact with human remains. She’s also co-edited a book on Feminist Anthropology. She occasionally contributes to a blog on the archaeological field school she helps direct in Honduras and Missouri.
