Author of ten books, Milam has worked in PR and as a newspaper reporter. A notable triumph for her was the motion picture, “The Adventures of Ociee Nash,” which premiered at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre. The movie is based on her award-winning novel, “A Flower Blooms on Charlotte Street,” the story about her beloved grandmother, Ociee.
The author is forever grateful to Kristen McGary and Amy McGary, director and writers, for bringing Ociee to life on the big screen.
In addition to the series of Ociee books, Milam’s other titles include: “It May Not Leave a Scar,” “Creola’s Moonbeam,” and “Writer, Writer.” Recently released, “My Nun and Her Husband,” is a tribute to the writer’s high school English teacher, a Catholic nun and her husband. Yes, husband!
In 2016, Milam co-wrote a Georgia travel book, “Sidetracked,” with fellow author, Jaclyn Weldon White. The two friends continue to market their book throughout the state, lunching and laughing, and trying their best NOT to become sidetracked!
Milam attended St. Agnes Academy in her hometown of Memphis and graduated from St. Pius X in Atlanta. A graduate of the University of Alabama, she is married to her college sweetheart, Jamey Propst. They’ve lived in Atlanta for more than three decades. She and Jamey have three adult children, Amanda, William, and Jay plus William's wife, Abigail, and their two charming grandsons, Loftin and Emmett.
Often Milam can be spotted walking around her Westfield Park neighborhood sporting a signature broad-brimmed hat.
