I'm a visual artist and poet. My new book of poems is forthcoming from Finishing Line Press in February 2018. It is now in pre-order. Reserve your copy by going to www.finishinglinepress.com and entering my title Cures for Hysteria in the search field.
"Caught in a genetic trap, Miller writes about herself as a mutant, paralyzed periodically each day, diagnosed as hysteric at age fourteen. This memoir in poetry uncovers a history of medical misjudgment and digs into the heavy weight of that history still pressing on women and men alike in medicine, psychology, religion, and culture."
The kitchen is also a studio. This dish is composed of grape tomatoes, celery, apples, fennel with a light dressing of white balsamic vinegar that my daughter brought to me from the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, the same place my grandparents roamed and finally left. I feel that art, food, music have all fed the generations of my family. Despite the presence of a neuromuscular condition, I have been able to find ways to make.
