Jonathan R. Miller is a biracial author of genre-bending literary thrillers with diverse, non-traditional characters exploring issues of identity and belonging. 

Miller, who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, was born in Illinois, lived in Los Alamos, New Mexico for most of his childhood, and then became a California transplant after undergraduate school at Stanford University.  He was an 8th-grade teacher for 7 years in the Oakland public school system, and has worked as a writer in the Bay Area ever since.

Miller's own biracial heritage -- black and white, but "passing" as white -- has had a strong influence on his thought processes and writing style.  His novels deftly explore issues of identity while providing storylines that are
 layered, cerebral, gritty, thought-provoking, and moving.
