Miranda Richmond Mouillot

Miranda Richmond Mouillot is a French-American writer, translator, and editor with a degree in eighteenth-century French History and Literature from Harvard University. An acclaimed translator, Miranda has a passion for pulling ideas into exciting and beautifully written words. Her first book, A Fifty-Year Silence: Love, War, and a Ruined House in France was translated into several languages, and her most recent translation, The Kites, was named one of the top 100 books of 2018 by the New York Times, won a Pen-Heim award and drew praise from the New York Times The New Yorker, the Sydney Morning Herald, and the London Times. Her work with children, top scholars, innovators, and business leaders has pushed her to develop knowledge of an almost comical number of places and fields, from slaughterhouses and cheese factories to bridge pylons, glaciers, luxury hotels, and couture houses. She divides her time between the Sunshine Coast of Australia and the South of France with her husband, cartoonist David Hackett.
