Vica Miller grew up in St. Petersburg (Russia), came to NYC by herself at the age of 20 and has been a New Yorker since. George Plimpton called her a writer, and she believed him. Her first novel, Inga's Zigzags, was published on May 14, 2014 by Ladno Books.
Vica has written for Vogue Russia, Internet and Tennis Week magazines. Her short stories have appeared in LitroNY, The Jet Fuel Review, Asymptote, The Linnet's Wings and Thrice Fiction literary journals. Vica has published a book of poems and is currently at work on a collection of short stories. Her second novel is being considered for representation.
When not writing fiction, Vica runs communications for DataArt, a global technology consulting firm. Previously, she was a magazine editor, sports marketing director, multimedia producer, TV reporter, art publicist, and CEO of her own multimedia firm. She launched a New Media course at Hunter College (CUNY), now Integrated Media Arts MFA program, and later taught Public Relations there.
Vica holds a Master's degree from ITP - Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
She is an excellent swimmer, a beginner paraglider and a mother of two. She's also a big fan of burlesque and has synesthesia, which makes her life full of color.
