Born in the Appalachian region of Eastern Kentucky, the promise of magic and mountains has captured Michelle’s imagination since childhood.

Growing up with dirt between her toes, and her nose in a book, her loves of reading and writing grew as she was raised on the stories of her parents and grandparents and whatever books she could get her hands on.

Nowadays, Michelle lives in charming small town Berea with her husband, son, and three dogs. She’s a stay at home mom by day, and an author by night (or by morning, or by whenever she gets five minutes to get some words down).

Michelle writes young adult fantasy books. She loves to read and write books that transport readers to magical and fantastic worlds with characters readers can journey with as friends. She loves to write mythical creatures, animal sidekicks, and all things magic.
