    “It was at Eastside Elementary where I first remember putting humorous stories to paper,” Miller said.  “Around third or fourth grade things started to become somewhat sensible, I suppose.”

    “I think everyone who likes to read or write at all would like to see their name on a cover,” Miller said.

    A tumor on her spine that was discovered shortly after her birth, left the 17-month-old daughter of Ella and Erik Fryman paralyzed from the waist down.

    Khloe never knew what she was missing. She slithered through the house relying only on the strength of her chubby arms.
