About Robert Miller

I started teaching in 1970, and for thirty-two years I worked full-time in public high schools. In addition, I accepted part-time assignments in community colleges and in the teacher-credentialing program at San Jose State University. In the early days of my career, most of my high school students were immigrants and there was little information about the Mexican school system available. I enrolled at the University of San Francisco, and the result was my doctoral dissertation-- a description of literacy instruction in Mexico. From 1978 to 1998, I continued to visit some of the twenty-six schools used in the study and at the ten-year mark, I replicated half of the research. In 1998, I redid the entire study. Over the years, I published many articles, some teaching materials, and a couple of books based on my conclusions. In addition, I gave several speeches.

Now that I am retired, I can pursue my real passions which are cooking, drinking wine and writing fiction. Out of this love came Rick Podowski and the Hefty Trio. The four books are filled with descriptions of food and wine. Since by nature I am a researcher, I was forced to visit the twenty-eight wineries in the books and sample as appropriate (and sometimes I sampled more than what was appropriate!). In each case, I talked to the various people at the wineries and learned some wonderful stories about the lure of wine. This has been a great experience.
