Poet, novelist, historian, biographer, journalist, essayist, reviewer and screenwriter—Rod Miller is a versatile writer. His work appears in books and magazines, anthologies and collections, online and on the screen. From poems to stories to articles to opinion, he writes in a variety of styles for various media. His subject matter is the American West, and he writes about its people and its places, its past and its present.

Rod Miller has won the prestigious Spur Award from the Western Writers of America three times. "Rawhide Robinson Rides the Range: True Adventures of Bravery and Daring in the Wild West" won the 2015 Spur Award for Best Western Juvenile Novel. His new book, "Rawhide Robinson Rides a Dromedary," is the latest in the series.
