After teaching fourth grade and remedial reading for fifteen years, Cheryl Miller taught language-related classes and worked part time in the learning lab at Colorado Northwestern Community College for another 18 years. She retired in 2008 to continue pursuing her philosophy of “We’re here to learn.”
While teaching, she joined writing groups and took creative writing classes wherever available. Her poetry, essays, short stories, book reviews, and how-to articles have appeared in numerous local and regional publications and national periodicals including Farm Wife News, The Reading Teacher, Quick and Easy Quilting, Country Woman, and Colorado Life. In 2013 she won the Pikes Peak Branch National League of American Pen Women Flash Fiction Contest.
Along with writing she does needlework, gardens, walks, and practices qigong. Book and writers' groups and her family complete her blessed and busy life.
