Background Information

 John W. Miller was born in Memphis Tennessee. He grew up in that part of Memphis, Hollywood and Chelsea, know as “North Hell’s Kitchen.” Following service in the U.S. Marine Corps as Staff Sergeant and later as Lieut. Colonel in the National Guard, he graduated from the University Of Tennessee School Of Dentistry. In addition to the practice of General Dentistry he became a Professional Custom Golf Club maker. In 1998 the GCA awarded him as Custom Club maker of the Year in the Southern Region. In 1999 the PCS awarded him as Atlantic Regional Custom Club maker of the Year. He makes his home in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife, Joan Seigenthaler-Miller.

At present, he enjoys writing fiction novels and short stories with the dialogue written in a soft mountain dialect. His first novel, The Curse of Satan’s Collar, was published in 2008. The novel spans the period from the 1770s through the 1920s. It is based on the stories of his father who grew up in the mountains of North Carolina, the stories he heard and the customs of the mountain people. There is some historical fact, some fiction, and a whole lot of embellishment. It seems embellishment is just part of mountain stories.
