J. C. Miller was born and raised in Western New York. She holds her undergraduate degrees from Genesee Community College and SUNY Brockport, and has a graduate degree in Communication from Regent University, in Virginia.
At the age of eight, Miller wrote her first book, a tiny collection of stapled pages recounting the partly fictional story of her life. This amused her mother, who suggested she might like to be a writer one day. Miller began to write in her spare time, earning acclaim from her teachers whenever she turned in a story.
She braved a late start to her college education in 1990, first opting for Graphic Design, then switching to Communications and Media Arts, at Genesee Community College. After earning her AS, she transferred to SUNY Brockport to take the plunge, working on her BS in Theatre and Film.
Then she moved to Virginia to study film production from a Christian perspective at Regent University. By the time she graduated, she had written an award-winning short comedy film, TR.
Miller is back in New York, employed by a talent agency, and working on other writing projects, among them a sequel to Worlds Apart.
