After seven years of success and accolades writing Attack of the Redneck Mommy Tanis Miller blew up her blog so that she could start fresh in the obscurity that is her B-side.

Tanis continues to spread her brand of humour and honesty on Tanis Miller only it turns out you can take the writer out of Redneck Mommy but you can't take the redneck out of the writer.

Tanis lives (quite literally) in the middle of nowhereville, Canada, with her family, her dogs and whatever wildlife that has mistaken her lawn for their litter box. In her spare time Tanis sits on the board of directors for Violence UnSilenced and is a passionate advocate for the rights of special needs children and their families.

She loves Nickelback, Dolly Parton and anything with the accordion and she really wishes square dancing were an Olympic sport.
