Her latest novel, A Children’s Bible, was a finalist for the national book award and shows children grappling with climate disaster - and their parents - in the wake of n apocalyptic storm. When not writing novels Millet works for the Center for Biological Diversity in Arizona, a nonprofit that works to protect endangered species.
