Too goody-two-shoes for the rebels and too rebellious for the good girls and boys, Christa Miller writes fiction which, like herself, doesn't quite fit in. A professional writer for 15+ years, Christa has written in a variety of genres ranging from crime fiction to horror to children’s, but her favorite stories to write -- and read -- are those which blend genres. She has an affinity for the dark, psychological, and somewhat bizarre, but doesn’t let that stop her from snuggling baby animals as a volunteer at a local wildlife rescue, adventuring with her two sons in rivers, swamps and salt marshes, or relaxing with a good book and a cold beverage in her hammock. Christa is based in Greenville, SC.

I didn't think I had anything left to say in fiction, but during that time I experienced so much that gave me a rich reserve of places and emotions and people to draw from. Now I make a point of writing every day, but if I'm stuck I find it helps to do what I did for 7 years before picking my writing back up again -- do (or even just read) something new, live in those moments, without even trying to solve the writing problem. I've found that the solution works itself out once my brain has a chance to look at life in a new light.(less)

It's also an effective way to learn about new things. I write nonfiction for a living, and I love getting to talk to people about how things work and make the world a better place. I also love how my fiction my nonfiction complement each other -- my nonfiction is more creative, my fiction is tighter and more to the point. Generally I get to go wherever my brain takes me, and that's gold.(less)

Many (though not all) of my stories start with a place I visit or see in pictures, which strikes me a particular way. In “God’s Country,” out in Nosetouch Press’ Asterisk Anthology Vol. 2, the story started with a swathe of farmland out behind the hotel I stayed in during […]

A strong follow-up

In some ways I liked this second book in this trilogy better than the first. There are some good twists, and the Green Man along with Sam and William makes another solid appearance in this story. Love and sacrifice, grief and peace

Reminiscent of what The Shining might have been about had Stephen King dispensed with limits, this thoroughly creepy English folk horror novel has some nasty surprises that keep you guessing to the end. Although there are a few
