One in Many Millions
A far cry from stories about storks and magical eggs, RJ Miles’ debut picture book One in Many Millions engages children in fascinating facts about assisted reproduction.
RJ was inspired to independently publish the book when she and her wife began researching how they would start their own family and began the IVF process.
‘We realised there were not many titles out there for children born via assisted reproduction that explained in their language, how their life began – particularly for same-sex parented children who may have been a result of donor sperm or assistive reproductive technology,’ RJ said.
RJ found that indie publishing required a lot of stamina and effort, but the best part was making connections with many interesting, like-minded people.
She even got invited to TEDx Brisbane, and also to be a writer for QNews in Brisbane. Her next big creative dream is to get a PhD.
‘One in Many Millions is special to me because it coincides with the start of our child's life and was essentially written for them,’ RJ said.
RJ and her wife welcomed their baby boy in December 2018.
