Author Biography

My name is Miro and I'm a mother of two, an illustrator and author originally from Romania, currently living in the UK.

I always loved drawing but it took me a long time and support from loved ones to see it as a job. After getting my electronics engineer masters degree, I worked for a few years in that field. While still working there, after getting a graphic tablet for my birthday, I’ve started all sorts of tutorials and reading all the books I could find on graphic design and illustration and found a job in the field as well.

After illustrating a few children's books for various authors I decided I needed to write as well. Whether it's picture books or non-fiction books for kids (books with activities), I really enjoy writing and illustrating for little ones.

As a hobby, I love crafting. Paper crafts, softwood, bookbinding, needle felting, and more, enabled me to spend a lot of quality time with my little ones. We enjoy our board games a lot and I’ve attempted to create a few of our own but their time is still to come.

A nice walk in nature or seeing new places, inspire me to write and sketch more and have the right set of mind for starting a new creative project.

Reviewed by Daniel D Staats for Readers' Favorite

Milo and Cat are ready for bed, but sleep won’t come easily. Miro Tartan has authored Right Before Sleep, a delightful little book about going to sleep, and it is the story of the various things Milo and Cat try so they can get to sleep. First, Milo reads a book of knowledge showing multiple ways of inducing sleep. Second, Milo and Cat try various methods in the way a child would apply the knowledge. But, no matter what they try, sleep won't come. Milo and Cat try counting sheep, listening to soft music, drinking warm milk, and other methods, but all to no avail. In the end, a simple little trick solves their problem. After Milo falls asleep, Cat figures out what it took to put Milo to sleep.

Miro Tartan knows how to solve one of a parent’s worst nightmares as they so often ask how to get their little ones to sleep. In Right Before Sleep, Miro shares many ways to help children fall asleep whilst also telling a delightful tale for the child reading it. This is a great sharing and learning experience for both parent and child. The illustrations are a delight and will keep the child interested in the story. Parents will want to help their children understand how each technique works, as children often do not understand the nuances of such things. Miro writes in an easy-to-follow and easy-to-understand method. The words are simple enough for a new reader but deep enough to keep an older child’s interest.
