If you ask Miranda Khan what her number one goal is in life, she would say, “to make a difference.” And that is what this award winning on-air personality and children’s book author continues to do.

Her professional career has landed her on-air, online, and on the cover for some the country’s most leading publications, websites, and #1 rated shows and networks, including Real America’s Voice. Miranda joined the RAV family, as she likes to refer to it, in 2020, and serves the network in a variety of capacities, both behind the scenes, as well as in front of the camera, to make sure the voice of REAL Americans is being shared. You can watch her, along with Dr. Gina Loudon weekdays at 4pm ET.
A community leader, she has dedicating her time and resources to numerous non-for-profits, such as American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, where she currently serves as a board member for the Southeast Florida chapter. Miranda’s passion for mental health began after losing her only sister Meredith to suicide. Wanting “to make a difference,” Miranda took it upon herself to finish what her sister began, and publish The Blossoms of Floraland, a children book series originated by her sister, which now serves as a catalyst for suicide awareness.
Meredith was a kind and gentle younger sister, often described as childlike by those who knew her best. From an early age, Meredith had a vivid imagination and a desire to write her own children's books.
In 2011, Meredith began creating the colorful world of Floraland. It was her passion in life. Inspired by her own childhood, most of Floraland centers around the mysterious wonders of Mother Nature. Meredith often enjoyed exploring outside, even as an adult, and adored all living creatures, both big and small. She also valued diversity and friendship. Meredith illustrates those values with the creation of The Blossoms, a group of four young girls who live and play together. Meredith spent years meticulously developing each character, providing them with unique physical and personality traits. Each Blossom is named after a particular flower, has her own unique friends and flower power. Through each adventure, readers experience a world they never thought possible, where riding on butterflies and sliding down rainbows is a typical way of life, while learning valuable lessons along the way. Meredith's ultimate goal is that her books spark the imagination of young readers, help them discover their own flower power, and influence them to grow up to be kinder adults.
