Kathleen F. Miller was raised on Bainbridge Island. Her favorite childhood memory is of playing on the tire swing attached to the tree house her father built in a Madrona as a birthday gift. Her first paying freelance gig was covering Bainbridge High School's football games for the Bainbridge Review while she was a senior at BHS. She graduated from the University of Washington with degrees in Journalism and Business Administration. She was inducted into the Department of Communications Alumni Hall of Fame in 2004 in honor of her work mentoring students.
Prior to having children and launching her career as a freelance writer, she worked as an editor in a large publishing company, in public relations for nonprofit organizations and as a copywriter for GE Capital. She specializes in writing about health, parenting, business and travel.
Her husband, David J. Miller, is a Technical Emmy award-winning programmer and Cub Master. They have two kids. One of their favorite places to hang out on a rainy day is Bellevue's Crossroads shopping center. They also have cats and Lottie, one very big black mutt. They are often asked about the breed of gorgeous Lottie, who was rescued after being abandoned as a puppy in Eastern Washington. They tell everyone who admires her at the Marymoor dog park, that Lottie's breed is "Sammamish Milltender."
