Kevin D Miller

Air Force veteran and Award-Winning Best-Selling Author, Kevin D. Miller woke up one day to learn his last name wasn't the name he used his entire life. His name wasn't the All-American Miller, but the very Polish Puchalski. Some old newspaper articles he stumbled across revealed a deep family secret and a terrible tragedy that occurred a farm in rural Ohio in 1920. This sent him on a search for the truth. A truth his grandfather took to his grave and never spoke of. What Kevin learned about his grandfather and his family shook him to his core and still reverberates to this day. The story affected him so profoundly, he decided to write a book about it and share his grandfather's incredible and inspiring story of courage and love for his family. Heart of Steel was optioned to become a feature film in Hollywood by GKg Productions, Inc. In September of 2020, Heart of Steel won a Bronze Medal in the Readers Favorites Book Award Contest. Kevin's second novel, White Skies Black Mingo was picked up for publishing by Headline Books, Inc. The story was inspired by the forbidden love of Kevin's great, great grandparents. His great, great grandmother was a member of the Ohio Seneca and the Haudenosaunee Nation. His great, great grandfather was the son of Irish immigrants and a soldier in the Union Army during the Civil War. The book was released on Amazon and on Headline Books' website in November, 2020. Kevin's third novel, The Promise of Lazarus, has been accepted by Headline Books, Inc. to be published in late 2021 or early 2022.

This heartfelt story is written by the grandson of Stanley Puchalski/Miller and what a story it is. Kevin Miller pulls out all the stops and pulls no punches when telling it like it must have happened. Told with heartfelt love of siblings and their mother, he writes as if he were walking in their footsteps and we are walking with him. I was captivated by the detail and how he set each scene. Raw, gritty and at times a bit bloody, I could not put it down until I reached the very last page. And at that last page, I had tears in my eyes. This is a book for the ages and it leaves one wondering just how many similar stories might be ferreted out if one were to just ask the right questions and look in the right closets. Read Heart of Steel – you won’t be disappointed. -Linda Thompson, The Author's Show Heart of Steel is the true story of Stanley Miller and it is hard to find a more realistic tale that will touch you deeply. Kevin D. Miller has written of abuse, murder, prohibition, life on the farm, pain, suffering and joy with so much heart and feeling. I felt as though I was sharing a story with a friend and felt all of Stanley’s emotional ups and downs with him. I cried, I laughed, I worried and I couldn’t stop reading Heart of Steel because it is just a really good book. Heart of Steel covers so many genres and is good reading for the young, the old, male and female – just about everyone should read this book. - Readers Favorites Trudi LoPreto This was such a heartwarming novel for me. Stanley’s struggles, his emotions and his commitment to his family were simply wonderful. I had such a welcoming feeling while reading of his growth through his struggles and trying to make the best of the hand life had dealt him. I was in awe of how strong he was; he added so much depth to the story. I enjoyed how the author brought everything to life and, considering the fact that this is a debut novel, it is very commendable. The word choice, the amazing imagery, and the descriptive narrative were perfect for the story. I enjoyed it all immensely. -Readers Favorites Rabia Tanveer
