Miller is long-time resident of San Diego. She grew up in Encinitas and has lived in various parts of San Diego County for most of her life. The nove'ls protagonist, Jan Weston, was based off people she knew from San Dieguito Academy and Syracuse University in upstate New York, from which Miller received a Magazine Journalism degree.
This isn't the first competition Miller has done well in. Earlier this year, she was named a MARSocial Author of the Year runner-up. She'd submitted an excerpt of Between Boyfriends for the heavily social media-based competition.
Between Boyfriends was originally self-published in 2011. The book did so well, she was asked by Booktrope to submit her book for consideration. The company offered her a book deal and subsequently published the Between Boyfriends triology.
