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)

Some Q&A about the Living Wild characters & story events

One of the goals I’ve had since I wrote the first book in the series is to provide as accurate a view as possible into wild lives. The point is to show how relatable non-human species are when you take the time to observe them. You might be surprised!





This blog covers some questions and answers about some of those surprises:





Do mother raccoons really adopt orphaned kits?Is there really a feeding hie Read more of this blog post »

The strongest possible end to the series. Much as I would've liked to have spent more time in this world, it's hard to top a end-of-world scenario, and Lukyanenko pulled it off with considerable ease, ending things with a logical and satisfying build ...more

Favorite story of this series so far for its Baba Yaga-like witch character in the second story, and all the moral ambiguity of those fairy tales.
