Biographical Sketch

The author of over eight titles, Patricia Miles Martin earned many awards for her children's books, sometimes writing under the names Jerry Lane, Patricia A. Miles, or Miska Miles. Patricia Miles was born in the Midwest, attended the University of Wyoming, and taught school for four years before moving to California with her husband, Edward R. Martin. She signed up for a class in creative writing at the College of San Mateo because the upholstery course she wanted was full, and published her first book, Sylvester Jones and the Voice in the Forest , the next year.
