G. Wayne Miller (born June 12, 1954) is an American writer and filmmaker from a suburb of Boston. He graduated cum laude from Harvard in 1976 and became a reporter at The Transcript, a small daily newspaper in North Adams, Massachusetts. Then he took a staff writer position at the larger Cape Cod Times in Hyannis, and subsequently worked at The Providence Journal. In 1988, he sold his first book, a novel, Thunder Rise (hardcover, 1989; paperback, 1992), to William Morrow.

'Toy Wars', released in 1998, opened Miller's readers to the previously closed doors exposing the inner workings of toy manufacturing giants and Fortune 500 companies Mattel and Hasbro. The popularity and success of 'Toy Wars' would later lead to the opportunity to write 'Men and Speed' in 2002.

In 2000 he published King of Hearts, an account of the men who created open-heart surgery focusing on Dr. C. Walton Lillehei.

In 2002 Miller released the first in-depth, behind-the-scenes books covering one of the most popular sports in America - NASCAR - as only someone given a rare, unlimited access to the largest racing team in the world. The release of 'Men and Speed: A Wild Ride Through NASCAR's Breakout Season' was the result of Miller being granted unprecedented access to Roush Racing (now Roush Fenway Racing) during the 2001 season. This book took his growing fan base through a fascinating season that included the death of legendary Dale Earnhardt, the rise of young star Kurt Busch, the trials of superstar Mark Martin, the prelude to Matt Kenseth's 2003 Winston Cup championship season and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a modern race team. 'Men and Speed' has quickly become one of the standards for NASCAR literary excellence.

Miller's last book was The Xeno Chronicles: Two Years on the Frontier of Medicine Inside Harvard's Transplant Research Lab. He is at work on his eighth.

In 2004 Miller was part of a team that was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prizer for Public Service for their four-part series 'Fatal Foam', a look at the flammability dangers of household furniture and beds. It was part of the Providence Journal's coverage of the devastating Rhode Island nightclub fire that killed 100 people in 2003.

Miller's last narrative work was a much anticipated behind-the-scenes look at one of the most prominent American Catholic bishops, the Most Rev. Thomas J. Tobin. A ten-part series about the bishop began on Sunday, October 21, 2007. [1]

Miller is also producing and writing the documentary ON THE LAKE: Life and Love in a Distant Place scheduled for release in 2009. Miller and director David Bettencourt are in pre-production planning for more films. Miller and Bettencourt are partners in Eagle Peak Media, a multi-media company.

Miller is the father of three children. He is also chairman of the board of trustees of the Jesse Smith Memorial Library.
