Ethel Lee-Miller, a native of Long Island, New York, is a retired teacher, and now writer and public speaker with over three decades of educational and counseling experience. A transplant to Tucson, Arizona in 2009, she resumed her love affair with words through personal essays that explore the dances of relationships where love, adventures, indifference, dreams deferred, and joy are choreographed and performed.

Her first book, Thinking of Miller Place: A Memoir of Summer Comfort (iUniverse 2007), explores the joy of being an identical twin and provides a nostalgic look back at childhood in the 1950s. Since moving to Tucson, she is active in the Society for Southwestern Authors, local writing groups, founder of The Eastside Writing Room, is an International Women’s Writing Guild Arizona representative, and continues her membership in Toastmasters International.

Coming Soon! February 2014: Seedlings: Stories of Relationships, a collection of personal essays and “seedling” stories about relationships—friends, colleagues, marriage, remarriage, retirement, siblings, parent/child, aging parent/adult child. Relationship topic talks such as Making a List, Remarriage, Who’s the Boss?, Fighting Fair, and Celebrating Love can be a part of group Book Talks with Ethel.

Editing services include copy, proofreading, and developmental editing. Writing workshops cover topics such as The Writing Process, Memories Into Memoir—Getting Started, Memories Into Memoir II, Marketing Your Book on a Shoestring, Creative—Sure You Are, and Public Speaking Without Panic for Authors.
