Read full description of the books:
Janet Magill's brother has been shipped off to Vietnam, and Aaron Becker, her childhood sweetheart, might well be next. When Janet's parents banish her from the Berkeley protests to what they expect will be a safe, idyllic springtime in Paris, she runs headlong into the 1968 May Revolution and falls in love with a secretive Czech dissident. Far from the City of Light, Aaron makes plans to evade the draft and join her, but loses contact as her "safe" year abroad turns into a dangerous coming of age.

Read information about the authorElise Frances Miller welcomes you to her Goodreads Author Page, and hopes to have honest conversations with you about love and revolution in 1968 - and today! Her novel, The Berkeley Girl, in Paris 1968, re-released in 2016 (formerly A Time to Cast Away Stones, 2012), is well-researched historical fiction, but her life has been pretty exciting in its own way. She was born in Los Angeles into a family of diehard Republicans. She annoyed them all when she joined the Young Democrats in high school. She was going to be (and was!) the first in her family to graduate from college, and she set her sights on the bastion of free speech, UC Berkeley.
Look for two new stories in Fault Zone: Diverge, published by Sand Hill Review Press, fall, 2014. Elise's memoir, “My People’s Park,” won 2nd prize for prose in Times They Were A-Changing: Women Remember the ‘60s and ‘70s (She Writes Press, 2013).
With Elise's art history degrees from UC Berkeley (1969) and from UCLA (1972), she began writing as an art critic and reviewer for several well known publications, including the Los Angeles Times, Art News, The Reader, and San Diego Magazine, for which she wrote a monthly column. Two of her short stories have been published in The Sand Hill Review (2007, 2010), for which she served as guest fiction editor in 2008. These were included in the SHR's tenth anniversary publication, The Best of Sand Hill Review (2012). In addition, her short story, "Playing with the Rules," was published in Fault Zone: Stepping Up to the Edge in 2012. Other gigs have included high school and college instructor and a communications director at San Diego State University and Stanford.
In 1998, she and her husband moved from San Diego to the San Francisco Bay Area, where was a member of the San Francisco Writers Workshop for 15 years. Today, she enjoys the region's literary opportunities and her memberships in the California Writers Club, San Francisco Peninsula Branch, Women's National Book Association, and the Historical Novel Society.
