Susan Cummins Miller: About
WELCOME to my home page!
Half Dome, Yosemite NP, CA (S.C. Miller)
I was raised in Pasadena, CA, educated at the University of California, Riverside, worked all over the West, lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern Virginia, and now reside in Tucson, AZ. My educational background is in the geosciences, social sciences, and liberal arts. I have bachelor's degrees in history, anthropology, and geology, and an M.S.in Geology.
Before becoming a full-time writer of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, I worked for the U.S. Government (primarily with the U.S. Geological Survey), conducting fieldwork in California, Nevada, Idaho, and Utah. Subsequently, I taught introductory geology and oceanography at the college level, and offered short courses and workshops in writing, geology, paleontology, and oceanography in Tucson-area schools. Until the pandemic, I gave talks and taught occasional writing workshops to professional associations in the Southwest region. Those events are on hold until the world manages to bring COVID-19 to heel. Stay tuned . . .
