    If you're interested in writing romance, you could choose a first name that means "love" or something similar. I think of a pen name of being something no one would ever be named in real life, just a fun name with a deeper meaning.
    Some ideas:

    Amarissa (meaning: little lover)
    Haviva (meaning: well loved)

    surnames could be:

    I think your first name looks unique without being hard to say, but I'm guessing you want to change your surname? Harika Bantu would be a way to "simplify" it without changing much. Or out of the surnames you gave, Harika Raine sounds good. And out of the three names you listed, I like Miranda Raine and Miranda Grey best. I'm no good at suggestions, but I hope that helps...!

    I like Miranda Beckett and periwinkleblue's suggestion of Bantu, either with your real first name or with Miranda.

    other suggestions:
    Miranda Adams
    Miranda Main
    Miranda Oliver
    Miranda York
    Miranda West
    Miranda Riley
    Miranda Alexander

    Miranda Grey is an easy name to remember when looking an author. So is Miranda Raine, but it doesn't flow as nicely.

    I love the suggestion of shortening your last name to Bantu.

    Here are some sugestions for a first name:
    Happily Married Momma to Three Sweet Girls
    Ellie {9}, Anna {19m}, and Hope {nb}.
