When Michele was 3 years old, she taught herself to read because she wanted to write stories so badly.

As you can imagine, writing has been a driving passion throughout her life. Before becoming a published fiction author, she was a professional copywriter (a copywriter writes promotional materials for businesses), the owner and founder of a copywriting and marketing company and the bestselling author of "Love-Based Business" series of books, which cover both business and personal development topics.

She published her first novel, "The Stolen Twin," in December 2014, followed by her second "Mirror Image" in May 2015. She's currently completing a psychological thriller trilogy called "Secrets of Redemption," the first book in that series "It Began With a Lie" is due out September 10, 2018.

Her books are a blend of psychological thriller, mystery, romance with a dash of paranormal. Things are never as they seem in Michele's world.

She holds a double major in English and Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Currently she lives in the mountains of Prescott, Arizona with her husband Paul and southern squirrel hunter Cassie.
