About the Author

Patti Miller is a writer and teacher who lives in the Blue Mountains of NSW. After teaching general writing classes for many years, Patti discovered how many people wanted to write their life stories and designed workshops especially for them. The first edition of 'Writing your Life' (1994) grew out of those workshops. 'The Last One Who Remembers' (1997), Patti's second book, shows what is possible if writers continue to explore their craft in the this way. 'Child' (1998) was her third book and first novel.


'This book will be a valuable companion as you write your own life story.' Caroline Jones, author of An Authentic Life 'Patti Miller is the perfect navigator to accompany anyone embarking on the journey of discovery that is life writing... her voice is like that of a guiding friend, offering encouragement and support as well as practical advice.' Caroline Baum
