Mandy Miller is an attorney currently living in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, with her husband and Talisker, a rescue mutt. Before moving to Steamboat, she practiced law in Chicago, New York, Latin America, and South Florida.
Mandy is originally from Scotland, but lived in more than a dozen countries with her family before moving to the United States for college. With an undergraduate degree in Spanish and French Literature, she needed to do something to pay the bills, so she did what any good liberal arts student who can write would do, she went to law school. After eighteen years as a corporate lawyer, she planned her escape to another professional life teaching psychology. More school ensued and a Ph.D. in Psychology was granted, but the great escape was not to be. She was dragged back to the law to use her legal and psychological powers for good as a criminal lawyer, specializing in the representation of individuals with mental health and addiction issues in the criminal justice system.
Thankfully, no ‘good’ crime occurs in Steamboat, so she spends her spare time making up murder and mayhem. In her spare time, she competes in ultramarathons. States of Grace is her first novel.
