WELCOME TO THE AMAZON FICTION BOOKS PROFILE OF PHYLLIS ZIMBLER MILLER
(See her non-fiction books by Phyllis Z. Miller on Amazon at www.amazon.com/author/phylliszmiller and her YA fiction book PINKY SWEAR by P. Z. Miller on Amazon at www.amazon.com/author/pzmiller)
Phyllis Zimbler Miller lives in Beverly Hills, California, and blogs on book-related topics at www.PhyllisZimblerMiller.com
She grew up in Elgin, Illinois, and majored in journalism at Michigan State University, where she met her future husband, Army ROTC cadet Mitchell R. Miller, on the State News editorial staff.
In May of 1970 Mitch went on active duty at Ft. Knox, Kentucky, and Phyllis tagged along with him. Her women's friendship novel MRS. LIEUTENANT is inspired by the nine weeks they spent at Ft. Knox.
From September 1970 to May 1972 Phyllis and Mitch were stationed in Munich, Germany, where Mitch served with the 18th Military Intelligence Battalion.
Phyllis eventually got a security clearance and worked as a civilian with the 66th MI Group. Her romantic suspense spy thriller CIA FALL GUY is partially based on knowledge she learned on this job (reports she typed went to the Munich office of the CIA).
After Mitch's military service, while living in Philadelphia, Phyllis was an editor and reporter for the Jewish Exponent before earning an M.B.A. at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Her Wharton experience is the starting point for her Los Angeles-based cozy mystery CAST THE FIRST STONE.
(Two short stories in TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE feature Rebecca Stone, the same protagonist as in CAST THE FIRST STONE. Both books include kosher recipes from Phyllis' 1992 Jewish holiday book SEASONS FOR CELEBRATION written with Rabbi Karen L. Fox.)
Phyllis and Mitch moved to Los Angeles in 1980, and Phyllis held positions at TigerAir and Max Factor. She then worked as a marketing consultant, and she was the founding president of the Los Angeles Chapter of Sisters in Crime.
(Mitch has been a tax lawyer in Beverly Hills for over 25 years -- see www.EstatePlanningForYou.com)
In 2008 Phyllis co-founded an online marketing company at the same time she self-published her novel MRS. LIEUTENANT, which was selected as a 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semifinalist. Phyllis dove into the world of blogging, social media, and online book marketing.
Phyllis and Mitch have maintained an interest in military intelligence, and Mitch is a member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers and the U.S. Naval Institute while Phyllis is a member of the Military Writers Society of America. Together Phyllis and Mitch wrote the military thriller LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS, an adaptation of two screenplays featuring the same protagonist.
Phyllis is a member of the Department of Defense's Bloggers Roundtable and frequently blogs about PTSD. Her short story SOLOMON'S JUSTICE was inspired by her visit to the Los Angeles County Veterans Court.
Phyllis Zimbler Miller's "Two Birds with One Stone" is another great addition to her Rebecca Stone mystery series. In this short story book, amateur sleuth and Los Angeles business reporter Rebecca Stone finds herself in the middle of two murder cases to solve in "Solid As Stone" and "Cold As Stone."
As she sets out to solve each crime, her investigative skills as an amateur sleuth are certainly put to the test. Mystery, suspense, life-threatening circumstances, and a never-ending quest to discover the truth will keep the reader turning the pages and eager for more. As in all of her sleuth adventures, Rebecca Stone's driving spirit, her keen investigative skills, and her unrelenting bravery run true to form. "Two Birds with One Stone" is an excellent and well-written cozy mystery short story book that will not disappoint the reader.
