Deanna Miller has worked as a cashier, ESL tutor, technical writer, nanny, editor, and stock trader. As a young person she loved reading uplifting fantasies like those by Madeleine L'Engle, so she decided to write a book in that tradition ("Sky Bounce"). She was bullied off and on from kindergarten through ninth grade, so she wrote a book based on her experience to help prevent bullied kids and teens from falling into despair ("Time to Tell 'Em Off").
She also writes songs:
Her interests range from the nutritional research of Dr. Weston Price to the spiritual teachings of Eckhart Tolle and Florence Scovel Shinn. She loves babies, dogs, justice, freedom, and the arts (especially music). Deanna lives in Maryland with her beagle.
Two secret friends from enemy races find their friendship tested and intensified into love when they're forced into opposite sides of an interdimensional and interplanetary struggle between fear and faith. Winner of the Wilbur Award for Fiction, nominated for the Pushcart Press Editors' Book Award, and field nominated by reviewers for four ALA awards. Ages 10 and up.
