In 1989, Mary Miles’ first collection of historical and contemporary island stories, "Nantucket Etcetera," was published by Yesterday’s Island Press. YIP also published her three interactive story/colorbooks,"Color Nantucket #1, #2, and #3," dealing with island history and nature/environmental concerns. Color Nantucket #3 features thirteen stories of Nantucket children from 1605 through today. In 1993, Miles' popular "What's So Special About Nantucket?" for children and parents was published, along with "Nantucket Gam," a second collection of historical stories, essays, interviews with elder islanders, and little-known Nantucket lore. Miles continues to write new children’s books, including "Shy Shelby," for primary-school children; and the second in her What’s So Special series, "What’s So Special About Plymouth? A Story About the Colonists and the Native People," which presents the story of the Pilgrims’ settlement of Plymouth, Massachusetts and the Native American people they encountered. "Ick!A Tick!" will be available in late 2002; it is a cautionary tale for children and grownups about how to avoid and deal with ticks...told humorously by a self-assertive tick named Irwin F. Ixodid. Miles is also at work on a novel about a slightly retarded woman.
