Jeanette Miller was born in northern California but spent most of her childhood in Guatemala, Puerto Rico, and Costa Rica, where her father worked. She cherishes her experiences of living in Latin America. In her teenage years, she dreamed of becoming a teacher and a published author. Jeanette attended Brigham Young University, where she earned a degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, she taught third grade for four years in the Spanish Immersion program. There, she enjoyed writing and directing plays for her students.
As a young mother, Jeanette started writing in moments snatched between changing diapers and making peanut butter sandwiches—or whenever her nose wasn’t in a book. She loves all things Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre. When Jeanette isn’t reading a novel in this genre, she’s watching their movie equivalents. She also loves scapbooking, designing jewelry, and eating chocolate. She would love to travel all over the world someday. Jeanette and her husband, Michael, have six children. They live in Pleasant Grove, Utah.
