About the Author
Making up stories of her own has always been one of Michelle's passions. She received her first rejection letter at the age of eight for Keri the Koala Baby, and has been writing ever since. A love of literature led her to major in English at the University of Newcastle.
She has worked an assortment of jobs. Everything from waitress at a wedding convention centre (where the staff oohed and aahed over fairytale wedding dresses) to answering the complaints line at a call centre for a bank (where the staff didn't ooh and aah over fairytale wedding dresses). All of which have provided her with endless ideas (and characters!) for stories.
Her own "happy-ever-after" came in 1998 when she eloped to England with husband Greg. They were married in Westminster—the town hall not the Abbey—lived on tinned soup for a month so they could afford to spend their wedding night in The Dorchester then flew out the next day to honeymoon in Paris. The sheer heady romance of it all made her wonder if she could breathe life into such encounters on the page.
And she hasn't looked back. She loves staring off into the middle-distance, pen in hand, and scrawling away furiously to bring her characters to life. She's a sucker for happy endings, heroines who have a secret stash of chocolate, and heroes who know how to laugh.
She is currently enrolled in a creative writing master's at the University of Newcastle, fighting a losing battle with her jungle of a garden, and trying to keep her doughnut addiction in check.
