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. ...more

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)

Looking back at 2020; looking forward to 2021

Like so many of us, I started 2020 with such high hopes. Raccoon Retreat was headed for publication after a too-lengthy delay; lesson plans and engagement with wildlife rehabber and educator communities were intentions, as was a draft of Book 3, Raccoon Rebound.





Almost none of that went according to plan. I did publish Raccoon Retreat — at the height of lockdown. Lots of parents were looking for wa

The premise was intriguing, the characters and settings nicely differentiated (and in some cases unexpected)... but ultimately the nonstop action made it hard to really drop into this story. Which is a shame, because Milazzo's a really good author -- ...more
