Oklahoma native Woody Guthrie said it first and best. This new anthology of poems and prose, LOVE CAN BE: A LITERARY COLLECTION ABOUT OUR ANIMALS, is proof of what love can be, as thirty acclaimed authors join together to champion life in all its forms. This is their gift to the world, not just the artistry of their words, but their vision of an extended community that includes cats, birds, frogs, butterflies, bears, dogs, raccoons, horses--a full-out menagerie of being that enriches us all.
Miller is author of the memoir, Means of Transit, and the novels, Remnants of Glory and Family Correspondence. In 1994 she founded the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers, based at Oklahoma State University–Tulsa, where she taught advanced fiction and regional literature. She also hosted and executive produced the television series Writing Out Loud, a staple on OETA which featured over 20 Pulitzer winners for over fifteen years. Miller and her work have been featured on NPR’s The Diane Rehm show and C-SPAN. Miller now works as a full time writer.
