Alan Miller

Biography

Alan Miller has been writing professionally for the film and television industry for three decades. He spent many years writing, directing and editing documentaries and features. His principal passion is writing. Obsessive about cinema, he writes articles and reviews for cineoutsider.com for the sheer love of it. He lives in the UK, reads more than is good for him and is known to be irrationally terrified of selected vegetables and utterly in awe of evolution. NIGH is his first novel.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
On a British soap opera from long ago, there was a character who could not read or write. He was being taught by a colleague and was having a hard time writing with his right hand. His tutor suddenly noticed him deftly picking up a tea spoon with his left hand and adding sugar to his tea and stirring it while he was staring at his own terrible handwriting... Once the pen went into his left hand, he rapidly made progress. For me, there were two significant moments when I 'noticed the left hand'. The first was realising the sheer volume of written output I'd generated over the last eleven years writing as 'Camus' for www.cineoutsider.com. I felt that as I did these lengthy reviews all for the love of it, I must love writing more than I realised. The second 'aha' moment was getting a Kindle for Christmas. It was like being given the keys to the castle...
What are you working on next?
In contrast to my recently published novel, NIGH, I'm writing an out and out thriller called GUIDED about a select group of people with a subtle power who guide elected officials into making more moral and ethical decisions in times of crisis. In order to stop a deranged, bereaved scientist wreaking havoc in Washington DC, the 'guides' have to orchestrate a love affair and control the fates of two people who do not turn out to be the puppets the benevolent puppet-masters were hoping for.
