Pat Zietlow Miller
Pat Zietlow Miller knew she wanted to be a writer ever since her seventh-grade English teacher read her paper about square-dancing skirts out loud in class and said: “This is the first time anything a student has written has given me chills.” (Thanks, Mrs. Mueller! You rock!)
Pat started out as a newspaper reporter and wrote about everything from dartball and deer-hunting to diets and decoupage. Then, she joined an insurance company and edited its newsletter and magazine.
Now, she writes insurance information by day and children’s books by night. She has 10 picture books currently available and 10 more coming in the next few years. She won a Golden Kite Award, an Ezra Jack Keats New Author Honor and a Charlotte Zolotow Honor for SOPHIE'S SQUASH. And, BE KIND was on the New York Times bestseller list for 10 weeks.
Pat has one wonderful husband, two delightful daughters and two pampered cats.
She lives in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin.
