Following statement from the author's page http://www.ellenmiles.net:
  • I was born in New York City on April 8, 1957.
  • I have curly hair and glasses. But I do not have a middle name!
  • I grew up in New York state but now I live in Vermont (the best state in the USA).
  • I'm the baby of the family, with one older brother and one older sister.
  • I don't have any kids, but I have three amazing nieces and lots of young friends.
  • My first pet was a beautiful tortoise-shell cat named Jenny.
  • I've been a bookworm since kindergarten and I still love, love, love to read. My favorite authors include Beverly Cleary and Dorothy Canfield Fisher.
  • My favorite color is green. Recently I painted my living room walls green!
  • I love to spend time outdoors every day. In the summer I bike and walk and swim and help out at my local farm; in the winter (my favorite season) I love to cross-country ski. When I'm indoors, I love to cook, read, spend time with friends and family, read, and do crossword puzzles. And read. Did I mention that I love to read?
  • I write the Puppy Place series because I am crazy about dogs. I get my ideas all over the place: from books, from the newspaper, from my imagination, and from dogs and people that I know.
  • I have shared my life with many wonderful dogs and I loved every one of them very much. I don't have a dog of my own right now, but I hope to get a puppy soon - probably a Lab or a Lab mix. For now, I get my doggie love from the dogs next door, two great mutts named Barley and Ursa, and some other dog friends like my puppy pal Bodi, who is a cock-a-poo, a cross between a cocker spaniel and a poodle.
