Mitzi Miller, who was named editor in-chief of Ebony magazine in April, has resigned after less than a year on the job, officials of Johnson Publishing Company, the Chicago-based parent of Ebony and Jet magazines announced on Friday.
Miller, 39, plans to pursue writing for television and film, according to a statement. Miller co-wrote the 2006 book “The Vow,” which the successful Lifetime cable network program “With This Ring” is based. Miller’s co-authors were Angela Burt Murray and Denene Milner.
Prior to being named Ebony’s editor, Miller was editor and chief of Jet magazine for three years.

Miller, a native of New York, is a graduate of Florida A&M University. In addition to “With This Ring, ” she has co authored four other books
