About Madelyn Miller, the TravelLady

Madelyn Miller, the TravelLady


Writer and Publisher

Since her very first time behind the wheel, Madelyn Miller has had unique experiences with cars.

When first married, Madelyn worked on the Chrysler-Plymouth account in an advertising agency. When she had an assignment to write about souped up muscle cars. Madelyn convinced them she could write better at home and quickly enlisted her Detroit-native husband’s help. The agency and client loved everything he/she wrote.

The only problem was one afternoon there was a rush assignment that they wanted her to finish before she left and she was at a loss for words.

Her next big auto experience was when her son Greg was born in the back seat of a Plymouth Duster. (She always thought he would grow up to work in the auto industry.)

After that, a preschool group asked her to speak on natural childbirth, assuming that if she could do it in a car, she could do it anywhere.

Her current car is a purple Ford Escort Wagon that friends affectionately refer to as Barney.

Madelyn Miller is a travel, food and auto driver who drives a Ford Escort. Her fantasy car has a big trunk, a space for her purse (best purse holder is in a Chevy Silverado) And a nav system that will talk to you --like the Lexus or OnStar. The only other thing she would like is car with Park Assit like the Scion and Ford Flex. And perfection would be a lift assist like the one in the Ford Escape.

Read her stories on www.travellady.com, www.carladynews.com, www.chocolateatlas.com , www.coffeeatlas.com , www.cocktailatlas.com and www.teaAtlas.com. She has a couple more websites up her sleeve. She also writes a regular car column for LatinaStyle. It apears in the magazine and is also visible online at www.latinastyle.com Other automotive stories include: http://caradvice.askpatty.com/ask_patty_/2010/02/womans-review-the-gmc-terrain-can-wear-as-many-hats-as-i-do.html#sthash.ckwicik2.dpbs ARTICLES ABOUT MADELYN http://www.herhighway.com/features/madelyn-miller
