What do you wish you’d known before you were published?
I wish I would have known more how to market, and get my books to more people.
What are your favorite books in your genre?
I like a variety of books from Shakespeare to Robin Hobb to Mark Twain to JRR Tolkien. The Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings, and DragonLance books would be at the top of my favorites, though.
What do you love most about the writing process?
I love the creativity and passion of writing. I love being able to express my ideas, stories, and worlds with the readers. I love the idea of just sitting and writing whatever comes into my mind.
Any unusual talents or hobbies?
I do crafts, painting, and arranging flower pots. I also recently took up beading, making bracelets and jewelry. It is another avenue for my creativity!
What is the last think you watched on TV/Netflix?
The last think I watched on TV was America’s Got Talent. I love seeing all the different contents/talents. I also enjoy hearing their stories.
If you were animated character, who would you be and why?
I think I would like to be Minnie Mouse, She is just fun and happy, and lives at Disney! Who wouldn’t want to live at Disney?
Michelle is a married working mother of two fine young men (her children). She lives in Wisconsin. When not writing, she enjoys reading especially science fiction/fantasy and classics. Her favorite authors include Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Margaret Weiss, and Colleen Houck. She also enjoys doing painting and crafts, and spending time with her family. She enjoys going for walks, and swimming. She has been known to jump in Lake Michigan with no life jacket!
She has been writing since high school. Michelle took a break from writing to concentrate on raising her children.
She has an app on her IPad that gives her a word of the day and poem of the day.
