Rod Miller, how long have you been writing?
Since the mid-1970s I have written advertising copy for a living. But it wasnâ€™t until about 1997 that I attempted â€œcreativeâ€ writing. I started with poetry, and a few years later tried short stories, with my first story published in 2003. Then I thought Iâ€™d try writing books, and had a nonfiction book and a novel published in 2005. Along the way I also started writing for magazines. I continue to write in all those areas.
Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.
I grew up in Goshen, Utah, a small town on Highway 6 in the far corner of Utah County. I have lived and worked in Utah, Idaho, and Nevada, and for the past 30 years or so have lived in Sandy, Utah.
How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it? (more…)
