More About the Author

Ann Lee Miller earned a BA in creative writing from Ashland (OH) University and writes full-time in Phoenix, but left her heart in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, where she grew up. She loves speaking to young adults and guest lectures on writing at several Arizona colleges. When she isn't writing or muddling through some crisis--real or imagined--you'll find her hiking in the Superstition Mountains with her husband, meddling in her kids' lives or at AnnLeeMiller.com.

Tattered Innocence debuts in February, 2013.

Ann says: Every year in elementary school the teachers wrote, "daydreams too much," on my report card. Like Ty Pennington, no doubt, put his, "can't sit still," to good use on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, I cashed in my bad behavior writing novels.

However, sometimes the daydreaming didn't work out so well in real life. When I was twelve, my job was checking the depth when we sailed near shallows. I jabbed a pole at the bay floor and yelled out how many feet of water we had by reading the notches on the stick. One day the pole stuck in bottom, and the next thing I knew, I clung to the pole, suspended a couple feet above the water, and my family sailed away.

Of course, I didn't waste all my hollering about mud and barracuda and cold water as I sunk into the seaweed waiting for Dad to lumber the motor-less, forty-foot hulk back around to fetch me--I wrote it into one of my books.

Kicking Eternity by Ann Lee Miller
This book follows the lives of four young adults. There is Raine who has always dreamed of going to Africa. Her heart is for the orphans there but is her motive to escape from under her dad's thumb or her brother's dependency upon her? She is teaching Bible at the Triple S Christian Camp for the summer. When her new friends tell her she hasn't experienced life being home schooled and not out in the world, her faith is challenged. Will she wait to hear what God desires for her or will her physical desires rule her decisions?

Drew has been living the past years in a blur. He has lived waiting for the love of his life to walk back into it. Drew is the Rec Leader at the camp. He remembers the younger Raine who has now become a beautiful young woman. Drew struggles with dealing with the past and deciding on the future. Will the Lord give him a wife and family? Will his old flame return and if so, is it what he still wants?

Cal is from the family where dad is a preacher and brother runs the camp. He is rebelling against giving into God. When he sees the beautiful Raine, something inside him wants to become a better person for her. But is he being led back to God or only trying to meet human expectations?

Aly has been a lost little girl for some time. Her goody two shoes roommate wants to be friends but what does Raine know about life? Aly's dad has been out of the picture for years so she's replaces her dad with other guys to fill her need to be loved, yet she always ends up feeling empty. When she realizes there is one guy that 's always been there for her....and has cared for her....it's too late. He is in love with someone else. And the big question she asks herself is, "Can God forgive someone as sinful as me?

Format: Paperback
Very clean romance with a unique love triangle that kept me wondering far into the story who Rainey would choose. This story is set in a bible camp in Florida where Rainey is a bible teacher as she waits to go to Africa to be a missionary. Drew, the activities director and a childhood friend, teases her; Cal, the art teacher and a rebel to the Christian values his parents espoused, draws Rainey in with his handsome looks and charm. Issues brought up in this book are Christian values, meth use and addiction, and hard family relationships when dealing with a user. I enjoyed this story a lot. It was well written, fast paced and I learned a lot from it.

This book was well written and very engaging. It's a Christian book (although not preachy!) with a clear moral message made very believable. The main characters were well defined and easy to relate to. I enjoyed this story and think it would be especially meaningful for teenage readers. Adult readership may like to see more intense background detail in future books featuring different age ranges. The author has a gift for making the characters come to life and leaves you wanting more!

Set at a Christian summer camp, Kicking Eternity is the story of four young adult counselors, Raine, Drew, Cal, and Aly.

Raine is the main main character. It's really her story we read. Her mission has always been to go to Africa. Obstacles stand in her way. She needs to find God's true path for her and go where He wants her.

Drew, her closest friend, is still in love with his old girlfriend. He believes it's God's will for the two to be together. It's his mission to find out the truth about Sam and where his friendship with Raine fits in all this.

Cal is a brother to Jesse the camp director, which is how he got the job since he does not identify himself as Christian. An artist, he falls for Raine and wants to be what she wants in a man. Can he be true to himself and be what Raine wants?

Aly is good friends with Cal, but how far does this friendship go? She's also roommates with Raine during summer camp, but finds the two are different. Is Raine annoying or is there something deeper? Does Aly want to find something deeper or keep to her boyfriend bouncing ways?

This is the summer for all four. They are tempted and tested, growing to find who they really are and what really matters in life.

It's undoubtly Christian, but I felt it was too in-your-face. It didn't feel quite as genuine as other Christian novels I've read. Maybe I'm just being cynical. I am too cynical for my own good sometimes. Christians are to pray, I know, but it just felt they did it too much, like a "get out of jail free" card. But, overall, it was a good young adult story.

I'm really surprised by the ratings on this book. I was ready to quit by the end of the 1st chapter. Totally unbelievable dialogue between people who have just met. Christian fiction shouldn't have a lower bar, but I think that's obviously the case. This may have won a Christian fiction award, but I seriously doubt it could make it outside of that arena. Glad I didn't pay for this.

I loved this book. After reading Tattered Innocence I was very leery about ready this at first, but I am glad that I did.

As a Christian I love to read fiction that has themes of faith running throughout the plot. What I do not like, is when I feel an author is preaching at me. I not once felt that Ann was trying to preach to me. Ann creates this beautiful picture of the reality of a Christian's walk with God. Christianity is not a free pass from pain, anger, hurt, and frustration. And it is certainly not a free pass from the need for physical intimacy. Miller addresses this side of life from a Christian point of view beautifully. Her characters are real and genuine, and as flawed as everyone else. From Cal who openly doubts his faith, to Raine who is struggling to determine what God really wants her life to look like, to Aly who is seeking love from everyone but the One who can give her peace and comfort. This is a realtable novel to people from all walks of life. Miller does a fantastic job showing that Christians are real people who deal with the same issues that everyone else faces.

This is a book that I would highly recommend to anyone. Period.
