The Pfeiffer University Friends of the Library will present New York Times best-selling author John Ramsey Miller during its annual fall event brunch from 10 a.m. â€“ 12 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 26. The public event will be held on the second floor of the G.A. Pfeiffer Library on the Misenheimer campus.
The author of seven suspense thrillers, including â€œThe Last Family,â€ â€œInside Out,â€ â€œSmoke & Mirrors,â€ and the â€œThe Last Day,â€ Miller's novels have been characterized as â€œmore than a mere book; he writes an experience," by fellow New York Times best-selling thriller novelist John Gilstrap. The writer has been nominated for an International Thriller Writers Award and a Barry Award, which is in honor of American critic, Barry Gardner, who passed away in 1996.
Miller's first novel, â€œThe Last Family,â€ was a Literary Guild Main Selection and was optioned by Hallmark Entertainment. His works have been published in thirteen different languages and converted to audio format.
He was one of 15 authors of the audio serial book â€œThe Chopin Manuscript,â€ which earned the 2008 Audie Award for the audio book of the year, and was selected from nominees like Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows. Miller is also the author of â€œNothing Quite So Evil,â€ a screenplay bought by Universal Pictures, but not yet filmed.
A Mississippi native, Miller has been a creative director for an advertising agency and a photo journalist. He and his wife, Susan, currently live near Gold Hill, N.C.
