Michela O'Brien was born in Milan, Italy, in... well, let's say some time in the last third of the 20th century. In Milan she grew up, studied, worked as a teacher, made friends and wrote, commending thoughts to page, imagining plots and characters, recording events in her life, noting observations about the world: stories, diaries, letters... In an era before personal computers, internet, blogs and social networks, it was pen and paper and she still carries a notebook and a pencil with her to sketch ideas on the spot.
She moved to England in 1994 and lives at the edge of the beautiful National Park of the New Forest with her husband and two sons.
Her greatest inspiration are ordinary people and real life stories and her novels and short stories centre on themes of friendship, love, coming of age and self discovery, human emotions and experiences everyone can relate to.
She has written two novels: Playing On Cotton Clouds (2012) and A Summer of Love (2013), both published by Crooked Cat Publishing
Michela is a member of the Romantic Novelists Association

I started reading this book today, and couldn't stop once I started. I just wanted to say I absolutely loved it ... I loved the characters - I loved the growth and development of the story ... You feel for these characters - you follow their lives through the years - their choices and the paths these choices take them down - I was sad to come to the end of it ... I don't want to leave them behind just yet.
