Hi, I’m Miriam Spitzer Franklin

and I write books for children!

My debut middle grade, EXTRAORDINARY (Skypony Press) was published in May 2015. Ten-year-old Pansy plans to become an extraordinary person…but she has only 14.5 weeks to reach her goal. That’s when her best friend is having surgery that she hopes will cure her after a brain injury, and she’s determined her friend will wake up and forgive her for all her broken promises.



m.phpMy second novel, CALL ME SUNFLOWER, was published by Skypony Press in May 2017. Eleven-year-old Sunny comes up with a “totally awesome plan” to reunite her parents, but first must reconcile their past and present or risk losing their future after she finds a photograph that changes everything.
