I am a writer, mother, wife, and lawyer. I write crime fiction.

I have been writing since my fingers could grasp a pencil. (Note to mom: no need to dig those early works out of the attic!)

I have a degree in English from the University of Pennsylvania (with a double concentration in medieval literature and creative writing poetry).
After college, I worked as an editor for three years before attending law school.

I have a J.D. from Duquense Law School and have been a practicing litigation attorney since 1999. First in Pittsburgh, then in D.C.

In 2009, my lawyer-husband and I left our firms and moved to bucolic South Central Pennsylvania to open our own firm.

I have three fantastic children, two geriatric cats, an elderly dog, and the two largest

“She was tempted to take the elevator instead of the stairs just this once. But that was how it started. Take the elevator tonight because she was tired and her feet hurt from having been trapped in three-inch stilettos all day, and then tomorrow she'd want to take it because she was running late. Then, the next thing she knew she'd be taking elevators all over the place because she got winded climbing stairs.”
Melissa F. Miller, Inadvertent Disclosure

“So, Sasha took charge of the meeting and set for herself the same goal she had every time she babysat her nieces and nephews: no blood; no property damage in excess of a hundred dollars; and everybody eats something.”
Melissa F. Miller, Irreparable Harm

“So, he rested his hands in his lap and turned his attention to himself. He let the sentences run through his head: May I be well and happy. May I be peaceful and calm. May I be protected from dangers. May my mind be free from hatred. May my heart be filled with love. May I be well and happy.”
Melissa F. Miller, The Sasha McCandless Series: Volume 2
