About David A. Miller, II

We are a family of many writers, including my grandfather, David A. Miller, the founder of the Allentown, PA Morning Call newspaper.

At Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA, I was an editor for the weekly student newspaper. It was named, with great originality, the WEEKLY.

During college summers, I was a reporter for the Morning Call, handling a wide variety of assignments. Later, I founded my own successful advertising agency. Writing assignments included many newsletters, magazine articles, features and human interest pieces. Clients were both stateside and all through the Caribbean.

In 2001, I was working in Manhattan on 9/11 and had an uncomfortably close view of the World Trade Center disaster. Like countless others, I had to stay in my office overnight. I wrote three articles and distributed them to friends and family. To my surprise, they traveled around the world, reached more people than I could imagine and became the subjects for sermons.

A client, the Lutheran Home at Topton, PA needed a history of its first hundred years. I was commissioned to write the story and named it “A Gift of Love.”

“Time Birds”, my first novel, began writing itself in my imagination long before I set pen to paper. Other writers have described this same phenomenon.

Reviews

Review by: Dick Young on Jan. 17, 2012 :
Plot is good. Writing is competent. Interesting plot of near-future action/adventure against terrorists.

Main complaint is that words are missing in text. Sometimes entire phrases or even a few sentences. The spacing is there, but the actual words are not. Needs a good edit/proofread for these. I downloaded the Kindle version, so I don't know if this flaw is present in other versions.

Worth the price.
