Mara lives in Kentucky with her boyfriend, their dog, and a three rabbits. She started writing in middle school after her mother shoved a romance novel in her hands and told her to read it; something she didn't do frequently due to her struggle with dyslexia early in life.
She graduated from Eastern Kentucky University with her Anthropology BA in 2010. She returned to EKU and received her second BA in English, Creative Writing in 2012. She is currently working toward her Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing online through Southern New Hampshire University, where she is focusing on writing romance.
Mara Miller discovered her passion for writing romance in her mid-twenties after a stressful divorce and no real direction. Writing has been a part of Mara’s life since her pre-teens, but writing romance gave her a direction she didn’t know she needed to move in until she finished Cheap Guitars. Although she loves writing about strong modern heroines and harder country boys, she also dabbles in other romance sub-genres with vampires or time travel. She earned her MFA in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University. Mara resides in Kentucky with her boyfriend, their two dogs, bunny, tiny parrots, and an army of chickens.
