Meet Brandon Marie
About Me
Brandon encourages readers to think of history as the greatest story of all.
Fiction has nothing on history for tales of courage, sacrifice, redemption,
cruelty and betrayal. Brandon aims to inspire readers with stories of people
who have struggled, overcome great odds, and made a contribution to our
human spirit. It’s no coincidence that “story” is right there in the word history!

Raised in Park Forest, Illinois, Brandon lives in Cincinnati, Ohio. When not
researching and writing, she loves to read biographies and murder mysteries,
travel, play games, attend the ballet, watch sports and old movies from the
1930s and 1940s, and enjoy great conversation. She includes her middle
name on all her books so people know she is a girl named “Brandon.”

Brandon Marie Miller earned her degree in
American History from Purdue University,

love of history began early thanks to her
parents, both teachers, who encouraged
her to walk in the past's steps at national
parks, historic sites, battlefields and
museums.

award-winning books for young people have been honored by the
