New York Times best-selling author Denene Millner is an award-winning journalist whose work spans the entertainment, parenting and book publishing industries. She is the author or co-author of 19 books, including Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man and Miss You, Mina, the first in the wildly popular Scholastic Candy Apple book series for tweens to feature an African American lead character. Millner also is an advice columnist and contributing editor for Parenting, founder and editor of MyBrownBaby.com, a critically acclaimed blog that examines parenting and motherhood through the multi-cultural experience, and a frequent contributor for Essence. She also has written for Health, Heart & Soul, Money, and Ebony, and Jet magazines, among others, and has given expert parenting and relationship advice on The Today Show, The Nate Berkus Show, HLN, CNN, and the Rachel Ray show.
In keeping with her dedication to books written for, by and about African Americans, Millner recently partnered with and helped launch NorthParan.com, the most comprehensive black bookstore online. In addition to offering for purchase the biggest selection of black books on the web, North Paran donates one book to a child in need for every book sold — a testament to Millner’s commitment to increase literacy among children of color.
The former political reporter and entertainment journalist lives in the Atlanta area with her husband and their two daughters and son.
