Carol E. Miller was sixteen when the private plane piloted by her father crashed, pinning her in the wreckage, critically injuring her parents and killing her twelve-year-old sister. Compounding this traumatic event, her father told her he wished she had died instead of her sister. For the next twenty years, she labored under feelings of guilt and lack of self-worth. When another in a long line of personal crises landed her in therapy with an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) practitioner, she began at last to investigate the crippling effects of the plane crash. Using bi-lateral stimulation to access her fiercely guarded memories, she learned to challenge the belief that the crash was all her fault, and that she didn't deserve to be alive.
Carol E. Miller holds a PhD in English and creative writing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. A former college professor and administrator, she currently runs a commercial copywriting business in the San Francisco Bay Area. She lives Northern California with her husband, a psychotherapist and EMDR specialist.
