Beth Hamer Miles

Beth Hamer Miles is the award-winning author of the Cousins Cozy Mysteries who hates writing her own bios. With the help of Artificial Intelligence, she learned that she climbed Mt. Everest twice, won the Hackney Literary Award and the Katherine Paterson Award, is a professional tightrope walker, a paratrooper, and a five-star chef. She was very excited to learn this about herself as she’s typically scared of heights and difficult recipes.


Beth lives with her husband at sea level in the beautiful coastal town of Pawleys Island, SC where she writes stories about the South, works as a speech therapist, brags about their three adult kids, worries about alligators and sharks, takes photos of big trees, and asks her husband what he’s making for dinner.
