Paul Varjak-ing It Since 1973!

Horror From the Heart of Bishop Arts!

“If you take my birthname (Chad Dereick Miller) and rearrange the letters, it spells “Childlike Dreamer” with a pesky “C” leftover. There are quite a few people in this world who can tell you what that “C” stands for…”

C. Derick Miller is an award-winning author, Gonzo journalist, producer, screenwriter, poet, ordained minister, and songwriter born in the town of Greenville, Texas. A seasoned paranormal investigator and independent consultant for the Dallas fine art scene, his influences include Hunter S. Thompson, Kevin Smith, Shawn Mullins, and Del James. He is the Head Writer for Your Stories On Video and is Sr. Writer/Jr. Producer for AtuA Productions. Chad is also an active member of the International Thriller Writers organization. He resides in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas, Texas and has a price on his head for his short story “Hell Paso” contained in the #1 Amazon Best Selling/Award Winning Death’s Head Press Anthology “And Hell Followed”. He wishes he were making up that last part but…it’s nice to be wanted.

“Chad is a believer and an adventurer looking for answers to questions that most people dare not ask. He looks for these answers in dark places that most of society steers clear of. In order to share certain experiences and supernatural insights, Chad has chosen to travel along a paranormal path that is safer during the day but far more interesting at night. Enjoy the ride.”

Thank you so much for taking the time to catch up on my life! Just know that your presence has either led me to where I am today or at least created a personality for one of my fictional characters. Probably one of the psychotic or promiscuous ones, but you should be able to recognize them easily. Please feel free to check back here for regular updates or browse the rest of this site for a trip down memory lane!
