About Michaela McGregor

Supply and demand determine how precious something is. I have one life to live. You do the math, I suck at it.

Middle age is swiftly approaching. I have 3 daughters, ages, 12, 14 and 22. My oldest has given me the most wonderful gift, a granddaughter. I try not to spoil her. Don't laugh, I do try. My husband is the most supportive man on the planet. Is he perfect? Not on your life but then neither am I, so it works out.

Reading and writing are two of my favorite things. I love a good story, no matter the genre or medium. They take you to another world, allow you to occupy another person's shoes, if only for a little while. My most fervent desire is to write good stories that people enjoy, characters that readers fall in love with and worlds you want to visit again and again.

Enthusiasm is my middle name. Just kidding--but not really. A psychiatrist might call it something else but I don't really care to discuss that. If I love something, why shouldn't I give it everything I have? I just hope there is enough of me. The scale says that won't be a problem but you be the judge.

The South is my home, but I live in the 'Frozen Tundra'. Alas, the torture, the agony... Don't ask how I got here, it's tedious. Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin received about a minute and a half of fame from the movie Titanic. If you didn't hear about it, you aren't alone. As I don't ski, ice skate or enjoy being pelted with balls of snow, winter can be like a prison term. Writing is a Godsend.

If you are easily offended, (i.e. every time you turn around you say, "I can't believe..." or, "Well, I never!") my book/s are not for you. I'm blunt and try to make my characters as real as possible. You may have noticed that I am also a touch on the witty side. Sarcasm isn't a coping mechanism--it's funny. Lighten up. Life's too short.

Review by: L.M. Steel on June 01, 2013 :
This is the first urban Fantasy book I’ve read, and I’m glad I did, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. McGregor tells an excellent tale of crime and magic interwoven through portals of our world and the Zephyri world of many a strange and marvellous creature. Indulging us in Greek Mythology along the way, not only does she create a whole new world within our own, but she feeds it a history to run parallel given it credence and sustainability.

The lead character, Chevy, is a great protagonist, who likes to think she’s streetwise and hard as nails, but is really still quite a fragile little girl. At first I thought this was a misgiving of the writer and I got quite annoyed with the childishness of the character, but as the story developed you see this is the way she is meant to be. She is a twenty one year old who thinks she knows everything and soon realises she doesn’t, just like every other twenty-one year old the planet. this actually made the character much more believing.

The Tsai, Eryx, is a fascinating character that constantly has you asking questions about who is, where he came form, and why does he feel the need to protect this young woman whom he has only just met? Keegan the Vampire, I felt was a little tame for a vampire, but I did love that he was Scottish and the writer did her best to portray the effect of his accent. At first I wondered why she had chosen Scottish, and then it was apparent that all the Zephyri creatures are very, very old, much older than America’s settlement 400 years ago, and so would all have had histories in other parts of the world, and with Greek mythology playing the greatest part, European ancestry again delivers believability to this fantastical history.
My favourite character though has to be the computer whizz pixie, How much do I wish I had one them as friend to fly around with me.

The story has a great flow to it, there are some parts that can cause confusion, especially when we are suddenly thrown into a dream, but the explanations come very quickly as to what is happening.
The story is very well written and edited greatly. Although it is rounded off nicely at the end, it leaves a cliff hanger so that you are eager to go out and get the next book in the series to see what will happen next.
