When Michelle Isenhoff's not writing imaginary adventures, she’s probably off on one. She loves roller coasters and swimming in big waves. She’s an avid runner. She likes big dogs, high school football games, old graveyards, and wearing flip-flops all winter. Her dream vacation would include lots of castle ruins, but so far she’s had to settle for pictures on Pinterest. Once an elementary teacher, Michelle now homeschools two of her three kids and looks forward to summer break as much as they do.
In a genre dominated by traditional publishers, Michelle has received the following accolades:
Nominated for a 2013 Cybils Award (Song of the Mountain)
Semi-finalist in the Kindle Book Review 2013 Book Awards (Song of the Mountain)
Considered for the 2012 Great Michigan Read (Divided Decade Trilogy)
Nominated for the 2012 Maine Student Book Award (The Color of Freedom)

What a fantastic story. Well written, colorful analogies, and grains of historical facts about the Underground Railroad makes The Candle Star an enlightening read, and it show cases a how much of a difference one person can make if they choose to act upon the opportunities presented to them. This would be a great story for parents and teachers to discuss with their students about this part of America's sordid and glorious history.
