Ann M. Miller
Young adult author
I write young adult fantasy and contemporary romance novels. I grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada, where the local bookmobile fed my diet of Nancy Drew mysteries, Sweet Valley High books, and Stephen King horror. (Yes, I loved and still love a wide variety of genres!) Currently, I make my home in Newfoundland and Labrador with my wonderful husband, son, and two fur babies. I'm a member of SCBWI and a former literary intern. When I'm not reading or writing, I can be found binge watching Netflix or playing catch with my son.
My debut novel, Captured in Paint, will be published by Finch Books (an imprint of Totally Entwined Group) in January 2021.
I am currently looking for a home for two sports-themed YA romances, and I am in the outline stage of a YA fantasy that I plan to write in November, which is National Novel Writing Month!
Paintings can stir emotions, but for Julia, emotions bring paintings to life…literally.
After her mom's death, seventeen-year-old Julia learns she can make paintings come to life, just by using her emotions. When her boyfriend Nick gets trapped in the mural she created, she must enter the wintry world and bring him home before it’s painted over. But with a mysterious force keeping Nick tethered to the world of the mural, they may be captured in paint...forever.
Forthcoming from Finch Books in January 2021.
Trust is the name of the ballgame.
After her MLB dad kills a family while driving drunk, sixteen-year-old Kate takes a job coaching Little League. Dating her friendly co-coach Ryan has all the makings of a sure-fire base hit, but it’s tattooed ex-ballplayer Chase who makes her head spin like a curveball. He’s also got a rep for starting fights—and a history of addiction that’s eerily similar to her father’s. As Kate faces the consequences of her father’s destructive behaviour, she must decide who gets to play, who she throws out at home plate…and who’s the game changer she needed all along.
I'm currently seeking a home for CURVEBALL.
Fearless Ali sets her sights on a return to the diamond, but her childhood nemesis throws her a curveball when he tries to keep her out of the game.
After a daredevil move at centerfield stops her heart, all Ali wants to do is play ball again—even if it means defying her dad. But when she falls for the nerd-hot guy her dad enlisted to keep her out of the game, she risks her heart both on the field…and off.
