Author Biography - Joanne Miller

One of Joanne Miller's earliest memories is of being lulled by the hum of car wheels as she gazed out the window of a wine-colored Oldsmobile; the scenery changed from dense forests to cornfields to dry plains. Her father, a freelance photographer, was taking pictures in the U.S. National Parks System for National Geographic. By age 10 she had visited every state in the lower 48. Comic books made interesting companions on the road, and "travel" became synonymous with "adventure", all in an easy-to-follow four-color format. While camping in a musty tent in New Mexico, Joanne followed Scrooge McDuck to the south Pacific, climbed Egypt's pyramids, and hoisted sail with Huey, Dewey and Louie alongside Jason's Argonauts. An appreciation of fine literature followed, in the form of "Classics Illustrated" - Macbeth was a terrific ghost story. By the time Joanne was reading books with more words than pictures, she had written and illustrated one of her own: a primer on "How to Do Everything Right." Martha Stewart, eat your heart out. After surviving her know-it-all teens, and adding Alaska, Hawaii, Japan, England, and Canada to her list of "been-there's", Joanne first glimpsed the mighty Chesapeake. After securing a B.A. in anthropology, she crossed Mexico, and traveled up the eastern states through the Necks of Virginia, along the coast of America's largest estuary. In the following years, she lived in the mid-Atlantic, visiting the Tidewater to crack crabs in Virginia Beach and indulge in fantasies of powdered wigs in colonial Williamsburg. She continues to live and write her own adventures in full color, whether it's watching the fiery sun set under full sail near St. Michaels, dodging feisty crabs on Smith Island's oyster-shell roads, or feeling the burn while climbing Baltimore's Washington Monument. Every place has its story, and Joanne makes the landscape come alive through words and pictures. She is the author of Moon Pennsylvania and Moon Maryland & Delaware and is a frequent contributor to Writer's Market and Novel & Short Story Writer's Market.
