Sandra A. Miller's writing has appeared in more than one hundred publications, including Spirituality and Health, Modern Bride, The Christian Science Monitor and the Boston Sunday Globe Magazine for which she is a regular correspondent. In 2005, she won Glamour Magazine's Reel Moments Contest. Her prize: Sting's wife, Trudie Styler, made "Wait," a short film starring Kerry Washington based on Sandra's winning essay. She has also written for, among other places, "Sesame Street," the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and National Public Radio. But her favorite subject by far is treasure hunting. When she's not out searching for gold, she's probably writing a story about it.
