Naomi’s love of literature led her to an English degree at the University of Maryland; her love of cinema led her to the University of Southern California, where she earned an MFA in Screenwriting. After ten years in Hollywood, her fear of earthquakes (especially hiding under a kitchen table with her baby) led her back to Maryland, where she happily resides with her husband and sons Jeremy and Jesse. Her debut middle grade novel, SUPER JAKE & THE KING OF CHAOS, was inspired by the chaotic – and magical – goings-on when her youngest son, Jake, was alive. If you’d like to know more about Jake, please visit Naomi’s blog at: https://naomimilliner.wordpress.com/b... ...more

Five of the tricks within the story are revealed in the back, so readers can learn, and perform, them for their friends and families! Warning: some are harder than others. (I did practice them all to see if I could do them, though. LOL.)(less)

It's gratifying and satisfying to shape, and control, an outcome however you see fit. Another great thing about being a writer is keeping the hours you want, the snacks you like, and the comfiest clothes available. :)(less)

“You think of the courage it takes to be anyone at all and anyone, especially, on the page. You think of right, you think of wrong, you think of a writer writing…”    Wife | Daughter | Self

Beth Kephart has penned over thirty books, received numerous awards, and been a National Book Award finalist; yet, somehow, I only “discovered” her recently. Her latest memoir, Wife | Daughter | Self, touched
