You can take the girl out of Texas, but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.
Michelle was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, where she became a band geek, Academic Decathlete, and the girl who always had a book—and a backup book—in her bag.
She earned a degree in English literature and French language studies at Rice University, where she met her physicist husband. What can you do with degrees in English and French? Not much, so Michelle entered the world of information technology and left writing behind for a while.
Now, Michelle lives in southwestern Ohio with her husband, two children, and two extraordinarily ill-behaved but adorable dogs. When she’s not managing IT projects or writing, she enjoys travel, hiking, reading, drinking bourbon, and spending time with her family.
