About Michelle Merritt

Michelle Merritt is a native of Washington State. Born at Seattle's Providence Hospital in 1964 to a Ballard family, she was raised on the East side of the Cascade Mountains. In 1982, Michelle returned to Seattle, where she attended the University of Washington for a short time. Dissatisfied and impatient with academic life, she joined the United States Air Force as a reservist and received a certificate in Aircraft Maintenance technology.

In the subsequent years, Ms. Merritt enjoyed a long career in the automotive industry, worked a brief stint as an insurance agent, owned a restaurant, and managed a non-profit. She holds a current merchant mariner's license and is working toward accumulating enough sea time to become a licensed captain on international vessels.

Since publication of her first book, One Night in Rome: And the End of Life as I knew It, Michelle has traveled by land, air, and sea to Italy, Monaco, France, England, Fiji, Turkey, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, and forty-five states within the United States of America.

She is the mother of two grown sons and a grandmother who now calls Tacoma, Washington her home.
