About the Author
Frances A. Miller has been both a teacher and a librarian. Currently at home in Chestertown, Maryland, she has lived all over the U.S. and spent 6 years in Australia. She is a long time member of Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and The Authors Guild, and author of four highly successful YA novels about Matt McKendrick and the Schuyler family. The Truth Trap won the California Young Reader Medal (high school category), and was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. Aren't You the One Who . . . ?, called "taut and touching" by the Chicago Tribune, was a top choice in English Journal's annual Young Adult poll and on the Iowa Teen Award list. Losers and Winners was described by Publishers Weekly as a "powerfully written story of uncommon humanity." Cutting Loose, a Tor Book Club choice, was reviewed by a YA librarian as "Real teenagers wrestling with real issues. Highly recommended." A ghost story "Something's Different" appeared in Donald Gallo's Short Circuits collection. Miller has also written Watch Out, World!, a fantasy for 9-11 year-olds; fiction and biographies for older students reading at the third grade level; and numerous articles on reading, writing, and books for national publications. From 1984 to 1987, Miller sponsored the "Aussie Books for Kids" exhibit which traveled to school--public and university--libraries all over the U.S., and in 1987 she organized "Happy Birthday, Australia!," a gift to Australia's children of 520 American children's books and hundreds of birthday cards to celebrate their country's bicentennial in 1988. She still hears from readers who find her on the web at francesamiller.com.
