About Mike Millard
Mike Millard, a journalist with roots in the Pacific Northwest has written and edited for newspapers, magazines, wire agencies and websites, worked in Asia for more than two decades and traveled widely in Europe. In his early years he worked as a logger, an oilfield roughneck, a farmhand, a miner and a janitor in a Las Vegas church with beautiful stained-glass windows. While living in Japan and Singapore, he immersed himself in their cultures and their burgeoning economies, wrote two books and made lifelong friends. He lives in the Seattle area, where local deer enjoy grazing on his flourishing garden.
'Love in the Time of Trump' recalls the psychedelic '60s and the progressive human values born during that transformative period. It also sounds an alarm amid the repressive politics of our present day, when an emerging, corporate-driven fascism threatens to dismantle our democracy and yoke the lives of working people to the enrichment of the few while destroying the natural life of the planet. This contrast evoked via memoir recounts the formation of a personal perspective that warns of approaching disaster while hoping it can still be avoided.
