MeiLin Miranda writes literary fantasy and science fiction set in Victorian worlds, from her 130-year-old house in Portland, Oregon. Her love of all things 19th century (except for the pesky parts like cholera, child labor, slavery and no rights for women) has consumed her since childhood, when she fell in a stack of Louisa May Alcott and never got up.

MeiLin has been a professional writer for most of the last 35 years, focusing on nonfiction until a cardiac arrest and near death experience in 2006 convinced her she'd better get moving if she meant to write fiction.

Currently, she works on the fantasy series "An Intimate History of the Greater Kingdom" and the online fantasy western serial "Scryer's Gulch," and is a co-creator of the shared steampunk fantasy series "The Drifting Isle Chronicles." She lives with a husband, two kids, two cats, a floppy dog and far, far too much yarn.

People of Wattpad! I done goofed! I left out an episode! Episode 48: A Little Look-See, to be exact. It has been added in, and the episodes renumbered.

I will warn you: I am coming to the end of what I have written. I have three more in the can after this one, and then I got nothin. I'm hoping to have somethin, but it's been a while since I've written in the Gulch's world; these episodes were written years ago.

In all honesty, I hadn't planned on writing more Gulch until I'd finished the book I'm currently working (and working) on. But I also hadn't expected the Gulch to take off like it has here on Wattpad. (Thank you!) So I'm going to do my best to get some more Gulch written and not have any gaps in posting.
