Linda S. Miller

Author Pic-Miller, Linda S (1).jpg
Born in Minnesota, Linda Miller grew up in North Minneapolis with her seven siblings. Her father was a neighborhood barber and her mother worked at one of the local restaurants. During her formative years, reading and writing became her favorite pastime activities. Married right out of high school, Linda raised three children while attending community college and operating an in-home childcare program focused on early literacy, and diversity and inclusion. Due to limited resources to support her program curriculum efforts around inclusion, she began writing children’s stories, songs, and rhythmic rhymes. Currently, Linda lives in South Minneapolis with her family.
