Eric James Miller is a former long-term resident of Venice Beach, California who took to writing about his experiences living there after he moved to Las Vegas. Currently, he finds life in the Mojave less neurotic, but equally as eclectic and entertaining as Hollywood and the southern California beach communities. He enjoys ghost hunting in very small groups, painting and exploring wine country in his Prius with his wife and their seven year old golden retriever who, he has been told, is quite possibly the reincarnation of Ava Gabor.
