JQM Literary Chat Welcomes Nancy E. Miller
Tell us about yourself:
I’m just your average Doggie Mama of four. Wife of 33 years to Ernest (retired U.S. Navy), Author of five books on Amazon.com… Four Fiction, one Nonfiction.
Tell us about your book:
The Long and Short of It All is a bit of a romance, a suspense, a psychological drama with a dash of humor. It’s about dealing with PTSD and the aftereffects of Trauma. It’s also about how sometimes life takes a left turn from the planned and expected. How one deals with that shows much about Your own character.
What influenced you to write your current genre?
I have four rescued canine sweeties who have all suffered their share of Trauma. Daisy, in particular, suffered greatly at the hands of a horrible person. It took medication and lots of love to just start the healing process.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite is Anna Salter. She only wrote five novels but she really helped me develop my voice. Her main character is a forensic psychologist. In real life she studies sexual predators, victims of childhood sexual abuse, and trauma.
Patricia Cornwell is another author that draws me in.
What are your favorite books?
My all time favorite is the classic, Jane Eyre. I am learning to appreciate the classics.
Who are your favorite literary characters?
Ones that are relatable but also present enough complications to make them interesting. Too many complications and I lose interest.
Is there anything you want to share with potential readers?
I truly appreciate all my readers and welcome your reviews. I’m not perfect. I can go over a book countless times and still find an edit issue years later. Desperate Overtures was the first in the Alice Gentry series. She is my favorite character. I’m working now on number two…Mortal Curiosity.
Where can we go to learn more about you and your literary works?
All of my books, four fiction and one nonfiction, are on Amazon.com. Crystal Unicorns and Desperate Overtures are in paperback and ebook. Head Games, Daffodils, and The Long and Short of It all are ebooks but the paperbacks are on the way. I also have a couple of short stories there.
