Marcy J. Miller is a native Arizonan currently dividing her time among several horses and her creative efforts: leather tooling; photography; and a variety of writing projects. Retired from a career in law enforcement, in recent years she has returned to the more artistic adventures of her youth. She writes on a wide variety of subjects, drawing from experiences as a professional horsewoman and as a long-time officer and police executive; a lifetime of literary endeavors; and a formal academic background in English Literature (BA with highest distinction; Phi Beta Kappa).
MJ has been published in print publications such as Police Chief; Horse Illustrated; Arabians; The Arabian Horse Times; The Arabian Horse World; and the Leather Crafter's and Saddler's Journal. She served as Contributing Editor to the International Fine Arts Collector, and has written columns on leadership for NAWLEE (North American Women Law Enforcement Executives) newsletter. Her articles have been cited in well-respected texts on law-enforcement.
Marcy has had the distinction of retiring as the then-highest-ranking female officer at Scottsdale Police Department, where she served in various capacities including Hostage Negotiator Sergeant on the SWAT team; Field Training Officer; Patrol Sergeant; Training Sergeant; Watch Commander; Basic Training Lieutenant (Arizona Law Enforcement Academy); Training and Career Development Lieutenant; and Administrative Lieutenant to the Assistant Chief. She has been certified in dozens of specialties including Criminal Behavioral Profiling, FBI Hostage Negotiations, Response to Civil Threat Situations, Statement Analysis, and as an instructor in First Responder to Weapons of Mass Destruction, and served as a Subject Matter Expert for Arizona POST in two categories. She is still available to provide consultation services or instruction in her areas of expertise.
In addition to her own books, MJ has edited and / or ghost-written non-fiction books for others. Through her business, Ironwood Leather, Marcy produces hand-made tooled leather items for those who appreciate the beauty of this traditional western art.
