The Poetry of James F. Miller II


a poet & writer, a dreamer & traveler.

James Miller is a poet from the Midwest. His passion for writing burned for him once he learned to write in cursive.  Putting a pen to the page makes him feel alive.  His book, A Footnote for Tomorrow, has held the No. 2 spot on Amazon Top New Releases list and remained in the top 10 for two months.  Previously, Miller’s poetry saw publication in the Tecumseh Review (Vincennes University, Indiana) in 2000 and various anthologies between 1997 and 2000.

Jim was born in the 1970s in a small town in northern Indiana.  His early life was spent between Indiana, Florida and the New York area. After his many years in college, he took to the road and traveled the country in a quest to find himself and some meaning or purpose in life.

During his academic career, James studied English, creative writing, journalism, advertising, philosophy and music/audio recording. During that time, he attended several smaller community colleges including Vincennes University where he studied English-Creative Writing, Journalism and Music-Audio Recording.  During his time at VU he held an editor position on the school’s newspaper, The Trailblazer, for four semesters. 

When he is not writing, working on the family business or at the auto factory, Jim likes to throw on a backpack and hike or load up the kayak and head out into nature. He’s a curious man who will speak to anyone willing to have a meaningful conversation.
