Joanne Miller lives and writes her own adventures in full color, whether watching the fiery sun set under full sail near St. Michaels, dodging feisty crabs on Smith Island’s oyster-shell roads, or feeling the burn while climbing Baltimore’s Washington Monument. Her interests in fine food and wine, art, environmental issues, and American history come through in her writing-every place has its story, and Joanne makes the landscape come alive through words and pictures.

Joanne first glimpsed the elite Maryland suburbs north of Washington DC on the last leg of a coast-to-coast trip after securing a BA in anthropology in California. In the following years, she visited the Tidewater to crack crab in Ocean City and indulge in fantasies of life among the super-rich in Winterthur. Joanne keeps hope alive for the day when crabcakes are considered a diet food.

Joanne is the author of Moon Pennsylvania and Moon Chesapeake Bay, and is a frequent contributor to Writer’s Market and Novel & Short Story Writer’s Market. Currently, she is working on a novel of old San Francisco, The Richest Gal in Boom Town.
