If there was one expression that best describes who Jeffrey Miller is, it would be "the unexamined life is not worth living" because that is what he has done all his life--examine the world around him as a writer, essayist, journalist, and teacher.
This need to examine the world around him started in of all places, a comic book, back in 1969 with a prize-winning letter to Archie Comics Fan Cub and publication in the December 1969 issue. With that letter, the die was cast for a lifetime of writing.
Originally from LaSalle, Illinois, he has been living and working in Asia since 1989. After serving in the United States Air Force from 1976-1980, he attended Southern Illinois University, Illinois Valley Community College, Eureka College and Western Illinois University.
Currently teaching at Woosong University in Daejeon, South Korea, he has also been a feature writer for the Korea Times (2000-2006); it was during this time that his interest in the Korean War led to his coverage of many Korean War Commemorative events in Korea. Eventually this would become the inspiration for his first novel, War Remains.
He divides his time between Korea and Laos where his wife Aon and two sons, Bia and Jeremy Aaron live.
