About the Author


J.R. Miller’s prose is a character driven exploration of homogeneous American life and pop culture. Sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, his stories work hard to develop a close bond—a relationship—between the reader and his cast. He draws inspiration from his literary heroes—ranging from Virginia Woolf, Fitzgerald and West to Mailer, Vonnegut and DeLillo to contemporary writers such as A.M. Holmes, T.C. Boyle, Junot Díaz, and Sam Lipsyte—all of which have their own unique voice entrenched in the American life. 

J.R. was born and raised in the blue-collar suburbs of Detroit. After several years of working in advertising and joined by his wife and children, he moved to Florida. He received his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of South Florida. His work has been published by Midwestern Gothic, Palooka, Prime Number, Prick of the Spindle, and others.  He is the Co-Founding editor of ĕm: A Review of Text and Image, production editor for Sweet Publications and teaches creative writing in Florida.
