Siri Mitchell is the author of 14 novels published by Bethany House, NavPress, and Harvest House. She has also written 2 novels for Sourcebooks under the pseudonym of Iris Anthony: The Miracle Thief(2014) and The Ruins of Lace (2013).
Siri graduated from the University of Washington with a business degree and has worked in various levels of government. As a military spouse, she lived all over the world, including Paris and Tokyo. Siri enjoys observing and learning from different cultures; she is fluent in French and enjoys making sushi. Siri is a big fan of the semi-colon, but thinks the Oxford comma is irritatingly redundant.
Siri wrote 4 books and accumulated 153 rejections before signing with a publisher. In the process, she saw the bottoms of more pints of Ben & Jerry’s than she cares to admit. At various times she has vowed never to write another word again. Ever. She has gone on writing strikes and even stooped to threatening her manuscripts with the shredder. However...she is currently working on her next novel.
She Walks in Beauty won the inaugural INSPY Award for historical fiction in Dec 2010.
Three of Siri's novels, Chateau of Echoes and The Cubicle Next Door, and She Walks in Beauty were Christy Award finalists. Love's Pursuit was a finalist for the ACFW Carol Award.
Siri is represented by Natasha Kern Literary Agency.
