As long as she can remember, Michelle has had a strange fascination with anything supernatural and sci-fi. After discovering historical romance novels, it was only natural that the supernatural and love/romance elements should someday meet in her wonderland of a brain. She's glad they did for their children have been pouring onto the computer screen ever since.

Michelle loves to travel and try new things, whether it's a paranormal investigation of an old Vaudeville Theatre or climbing Mayan temples in Belize. She's addicted to movies and used to drive her mother crazy while quoting random scenes with her brother. Though it has yet to happen, her dream is to be in a horror movie as 1. A zombie or 2. The expendable screaming chick who gets it in the beginning credits. But for the most part she can be found writing in her office with a cup of coffee in pajama pants.

Come say hello! She loves talking with readers on social media!

Smashwords Interview

Who are you and what do you do?
I would assume since you're here, you already know part of the answer, but here's me as a writer in a nutshell...

​I’m a New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning romance author Michelle M. Pillow. — It always seems strange talking about myself like that because most days I just feel like a girl with a computer.

I'm what they're calling a "hybrid author". I write in a variety of romance fiction genres including futuristic, paranormal, historical, contemporary, fantasy and dark paranormal. I have been all over the publishing world–from traditional “big name” publishers to e-first publishers and now Indie. In 2009 fellow author Mandy M. Roth and I started a highly successful self-publishing endeavor named The Raven Books.

My first book was published April 2004 and since then I’ve published nearly 100 titles, many of which are in their second and third editions, and are in audio book. Being prolific is easy when you love your job!

I write nonfiction features and take photographs for Paranormal Underground Magazine. I also write their monthly Author Interviews.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life is an adventure and I love what I do.
