  • Name: Robin Miller
    Position: Conference Director
    Conference Task(s): It would probably be much easier to note what details of the conference DON'T fall under Robin's job description. Then again, none really come to mind. If it has to do with conference, she oversees.

Her books have placed/finaled in such contests as Bookseller’s Best, Carol Awards, Daphne du Maurier, Holt Medallion, and Reviewer’s Choice Award. She has concluded a series for middle-grade girls as well as co-authored a series of books for middle-graders-YA with her mentor, Colleen Coble.

  • Name: Pam Hillman
    Position: Conference Treasurer
    Conference Task(s): Pam handles all of the accounting and bookkeeping aspects of the annual conference.

    Pam Hillman spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn’t afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove an old Allis Chalmers 110. When her daddy asked her if she wanted to bale hay, she told him she didn’t mind raking. Raking hay doesn’t take much thought so Pam spent her time working on her tan and making up stories in her head. Now, that’s the kind of life every girl should dream of! Her debut historical romance, Stealing Jake, was an EPIC eBook Awards finalist. Claiming Mariah, her second novel, won Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart. As past treasurer of ACFW, Pam continues to give back to the organization as Conference Treasurer. She lives in Mississippi with her husband and family.
