When Miller Miller moved from New Jersey to Boulder, Colorado in 1973, she was recently divorced, on her own, and excited to explore the mountains. "I had looked for a flower book to hike with but the only books I could find were big, had more words than pictures and every flower had to be "keyed" out. I had an idea for a flower book that would fit in a jeans back pocket, was a picture book and made flower identification easy." Sitting up late one night with her new roommate, Cyndi Nelson, Millie mentioned her book idea. "Why don't you do it?" Cyndi asked. Miller just laughed and changed the subject. After much persistance, Cyndi finally offered "Well, I will help you." Millie Miller and Cyndi Nelson have been writing and illustrating books together ever since. They split all of the work equally. "We paint so much alike," says Millie, "that we sometimes couldn't remember who did which page." Millie Miller lives in Boulder, Colordao with her husband, two sons, and two dogs.
