Davon Miller (born April 23, 2002 in St. Petersburg, Florida) is a young, published children's author and illustrator best known for his children's book series titled Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock. As an infant, Davon was diagnosed with severe asthma, which forced him at times to be in and out of All Children's Hospital. He started writing and drawing stories at a very young age, becoming inspired by the characters he viewed on television. He published his first book at the age of eleven in April of 2014, with the book titled Mr. Tickety-Toc Clock: Goodnight Mr. Clock, which eventually spawned into a series. Davon was an active volunteer of the South Branch Library and the Ronald McDonald House while also continuing to donate some proceeds from book signings to Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital in support of Asthma research. He is an alumnus of Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg and is a 2022 graduate of St. Petersburg College. In 2020, he launched #IMAGINE2020CHILDRENSTORIES, a campaign to help indie African American authors during the rise of #BlackLivesMatter. He currently hosts a segment on the radio program, Joy on Paper, titled BookBuzz, where he discusses about a new children’s book and author each month.
