About Mark H Miller

Diane and I live in Leander, Texas. This past June 17, 2015 I celebrated the 49th anniversary of my ordination. We returned to Texas after three years in Washington, during which I served as interim minister in Bellevue/Eastgate and Mercer Island. Am planning to begin a 5th novel that will have my protagonist, Tricia Gleason, serve a year in licensed ministry in Snoqualmie, Washington. The novel, "The Lemon Drop Didn't Melt," will find Tricia wrestling with ministry challenges. None of which more daunting than someone wanting her breathing to stop. All the published novels are available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle under Mark Henry Miller. A primary goal in our return to Texas is to make sure grandchildren get lots of attention--here and in Chicago and Washington, D.C. Traveling is definitely an activity that will not slow down. With that, of course, fishing will happen. To that the t-shirt is apt, "I fish; therefore I am." In addition to novels, the book of Blogs, "Voice Of My Heart," is also available on Amazon.

He Hit More Than Home Runs

I’m still on baseball. Read an article about the most overrated professional baseball players. Some impressive names. Of the list I cast no vote. If I had I wouldn’t have labeled Anthony Rizzo as overrated. But, hey, that’s not my … Continue reading

Take The Bat Off Your Shoulder

Truth neither hidden nor denied: I am a baseball fan. As a child, the Portland Beavers were an AAA professional baseball or team. No television then. But, their games were on a Portland radio station. Bob Blackburn and Rollie Truitt … Continue reading

Kicking To Victory

I am the first and last to admit I don’t understand soccer. Some of you…better for accuracy, most of you…know more than I. Hey, this isn’t a know-it-all contest. I watched, though. And when the 5th minute after game regulation … Continue reading
