“This novel, although fictional, shares a story on workplace bullying that unfortunately too many people, in EVERY industry, can relate to. I intend to use this as a voice for the bullied and the broken” said Miriam.
“As a journalist, I always wanted my stories to mean something so when I moved to a law firm and began working as a Media Advisor, I was suddenly exposed to all of these horrific accounts of workplace bullying.
While I couldn’t tell client stories, this was a way to tell a tale to change the tide and to hopefully empower young people in the workplace to stand up for themselves in any degrading situation.”
Louboutins, Lattes and Live TV is fictional but the message is a fact of many people’s lives.
“When I started writing this novel, I looked for support groups that existed for young people in the workplace and I’m sad to say, that there are very few networks available to help workers navigate tricky workplace situations. This book is a step in that direction.”
“I hope it’s something that mothers give to their daughters to read before they enter the workforce. I hope young workers read it and see it as a tool for empowerment and I hope, that the bullies who do read this learn to reflect and change old behaviours to stop themselves from the inevitable hurt that they cause.”
Miriam is available for interviews.

READER REVIEW – 5 Stars on Goodreads and Amazon
“This is the perfect novel for fans of the like of The Devil Wears Prada, or for anyone who has had an absolute nightmare of a co-worker, who would throw you under bus at the blink of an eye. Many of us have been in a similar situation that protagonist, Anna-Simone finds herself in – battling a workplace foe, that seems to want to destroy her for no reason at all. It is shocking the lengths that Klarissa will go to, to undermine and humiliate her co-workers, just to get ahead. Her willingness to betray and bully, makes for a compelling read…it certainly kept me turning page after page, hoping the next one will bring her comeuppance. I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but you wont be disappointed by the ending, so fight through your frustrations. Louboutins, Lattes & Live TV by Miriam Sawan is a really fun read, that had be laughing out loud, wanting to tear my hair out, and definitely will make me think twice before sending that brusque email.”
