LYNN RUTH MILLER was born in Toledo, Ohio and had the good sense to leave the place when her life began at forty. She earned two Master’s Degrees with honours, one in Creative Arts for Children at the University of Toledo, and the other, a Master of Arts degree in Communications from Stanford University. She has done post-graduate work at Indiana University, Harvard, Oxford, Stanford and San Francisco State. When she was 27 and her ambitions turned theatrical, she starred in her own CBS television show. When she reached the mid century mark in her life, Lynn Ruth landed in Pacifica, a small community concealed from the affluent by heavy fog, nestled between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay.
Her former column in the Pacifica Tribune Thoughts While Walking the Dog was gathered into a book of favourites. It became such a success that a second collection was released: More Thoughts While Walking the Dog. Her autobiographical novel, Starving Hearts has sold over 6,000 copies. Her latest book is The Late Bloomer.
She has six one woman cabaret shows under her belt. She performs stand-up comedy internationally and is a fixture at both the Brighton Fringe Festival and the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival. She hosted two television shows on Pacifica’s public access TV station, CH 26: WHAT’S HOT BETWEEN THE COVERS (an interview program and PAINT WITH LYNN (a hands on art program) until 2014 when she moved to Britain. And became a presenter for BRIGHTON LIGHTS on The Latest TV, Brighton.
She appeared on Britain's Got Talent, America's Got Talent, First Date, and Growing Old Disgracefully on Channel 5.
