about christy miles

When I was five years old, I knew I wanted to be a writer. I wrote my first short story when I was seven. By nine, I had a vision for my life: I wanted to write things that made people think. Today, I would only add one word to that vision: I want to write things that make people think differently. I write about things I care and feel deeply about. I share my stories when I feel they may be helpful and when they are ready to be told. Thank you for stopping by and spending time with my words. 🙂




Christy Miles is principal and founder of Rivermaker, Inc., a strategic messaging and marketing firm. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia College Chicago and a BA in Professional Writing from Purdue University. Born and raised in Chicago, IL, Christy now lives in an unincorporated area outside the city in a house with lots of trees, two awesome teenagers, one Rhodesian Ridgeback, one bearded dragon (eek!) and one ball python snake (double eek!!).

  1. Thinking deeply is wonderful. I often think of a phrase from Harry Potter when Harry asks Dumbledore if what he is experiencing is real, or just happening in his head. Dumbledore replies: “Of course it’s just happening in your head, Harry; but why does that mean it’s not real?”
