Meet the Author

SASHA MILLER loves teaching so much that it cuts into her writing time. “Maybe,” she comments, “there’s a message in that somewhere.”

She is the author of over a dozen books, including Ladylord, (from TOR), published in 1996. It is a fantasy set in a world reminiscent of medieval Japan. In addition, she collaborated with Andre Norton before her death on a fantasy series for TOR Books: To the King, A Daughter, 2000, Knight or Knave, 2001, A Crown Disowned, 2002, Dragon Blade, 2004 and The Tale of the Red-Bearded Night (first volume of the continuing Tales of the NordornLand), 2005. The next volume in this series, The Tale of Bjaudin NordornKing is currently in progress.

She and her husband Ben live in Northeast Texas with their two cats. Sasha’s website address is www.sashamiller.com
