Miranda Goshawk (b. 1921[1]) was a witch and an author of spellbooks[2]. One such spellbook was Book of Spells, in which she gave a slightly extended autobiography[2].


Early lifeEdit

Miranda was the last of nine sisters, born into a very large and very poor family[2]. She attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but in her time at school the textbooks were very complicated and she struggled to understand[2]. Her sisters tried to fool her into using the incorrect incantations for various spells, which might have resulted in her injury had she believed them[2].

Writing careerEdit

When she graduated, she was quick to realise that proper help was unavailable for witches and wizards trying to learn magic, and so wrote Book of Spells, which is used worldwide and has been translated into seventy-two different languages[2].
