Like many authors, Michelle has been a writer since she was a child, enjoying the rush of delving into her imagination and creating a new world on paper.
That love of writing eventually led her to a day job as a news reporter, while she secretly worked on a novel for fun.
In 2016, Michelle, on a whim, dusted off that novel and threw it out to the world. Mostly for friends and family. Mostly for fun.
That whim kickstarted her journey as a published author.
An empty-ish nester, Michelle lives in southeastern Ohio with her husband, sometimes newly adult children, and way too many animals.
