Laura E. Miller


Laura Miller writes, tap dances, plays piano, hikes, feeds and picks up after a variety of people and four-legged creatures, and keeps a mostly messy house. She reads aloud and tells stories from a purple chair, or, if she's not in her living room, from behind a podium to a larger audience. She dances in holiday parades throughout the Bay Area and on small community stages. Laura lives with her husband and children in Oakland, California.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I love Irish authors. Sebastian Berry, William Trevor, Maeve Binchy, Anne Enright . . . I'm always collecting more. Their voices have a cadence that melds with my imagination. I also like many English writers: Clive Barker, Kate Atkinson, Roald Dahl and Alexander McCall Smith. I know they're very different from each other, but they are all great storytellers.

My favorite books of all time are The Elegance of the Hedgehog, To Kill a Mockingbird, All the Light We Cannot See, The Unlikely Pilgrimmage of Harold Frye, Poisonwood Bible, Where the Sidewalk Ends, . . this list is long and I can't stop adding to it because people can't stop writing great stuff.
Describe your desk
Wherever I am. I always have a notebook and pen or pencil. For planned writing sessions, my laptop comes along to any corner of the house that's free or any cafe where there's a table.
