Milam McGraw Propst


Author of eight novels including one which became the motion picture, "The Adventures of Ociee Nash." I currently have a new book in the works. This is my initial attempt at publishing online. I've discovered that writing books is a far less daunting task!

A graduate of the University of Alabama, I'm married to Jamey Propst, my college sweetheart. We are the proud parents of three young adults, and both of us relish playing with our two remarkable grandsons, Loftin and Emmett.

*Not only are these Ociee books available through Smashwords, but five other "in print" titles can be ordered: three from Mercer University Press, two from Belle Books, or directly from me through my website: Milam McGraw
