Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Robert Tate Miller was raised in the North Carolina mountain town of Hendersonville and began writing at an early age. He began his writing career with homespun essays of small town life that were published in such publications as Reader’s Digest, The Christian Science Monitor, and the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. He moved to Los Angeles in the late 1980s and wrote successful family-oriented telefilms for NBC, ABC Family and the Hallmark Channel. Robert lives in Northridge, CA with his wife, Gina, and stepdaughter, Chloe June.
“I was born and raised in the South, and we southerners are storytellers by nature. I grew up with relatives that truly loved to tell those old family tales around the dinner table. As a boy, I would sometimes sit there long after my plate was empty and just listen. I think hearing my family members sharing those old stories was my inspiration to later spin a few yarns of my own.”
