Elise Frances Miller welcomes you to her Goodreads Author Page, and hopes to have honest conversations with you about love and revolution in 1968 - and today! Her novel, The Berkeley Girl, in Paris 1968, re-released in 2016 (formerly A Time to Cast Away Stones, 2012), is well-researched historical fiction, but her life has been pretty exciting in its own way. She was born in Los Angeles into a family of diehard Republicans. She annoyed them all when she joined the Young Democrats in high school. She was going to be (and was!) the first in her family to graduate from college, and she set her sights on the bastion of free speech, UC Berkeley.

Look for two new stories in Fault Zone: Diverge, published by Sand Hill Review Press, fall, 2014. Eli

So many readers asked, after reading A Time to Cast Away Stones, "What ever happened to Janet and Aaron?" that I wrote a sequel - the novella, and stories dealing with other issues from those days. This will be published sometime in 2016. (less)

What an amazing writer! Irving makes even a lifelong skeptic of such material believe in a dwarf's direct link to higher powers - or at least suspend disbelief for the sake of a thrilling story. The real star is not the clear and sympathetic narrator ...more

“...I began pulling out old pictures and yearbooks from our Los Angeles high schools and UC Berkeley. Suddenly there we were, thousands of trim-haired, neatly-dressed, conservative-looking youngsters, with perky, forced smiles, encased in identical inch by inch-and-a-quarter boxes for our children to snicker at. Only they did not snicker.
“Mom, this isn’t the 60s, is it?”
Elise Frances Miller, A Time to Cast Away Stones
