Michelle D. Sonnier earned her BA from University of Baltimore and her MS from Towson University. While she was at Towson, she came to realize that her stories fell flat without some element of the supernatural. So, she abandoned “high literature” and embraced genre fiction, most especially urban fantasy.
But a girl has to eat, and so she took on jobs in the cube farms of America. Even as she made her way in the world of offices and high technology in order to keep the bills paid, she never gave up on her dream of being a professional storyteller. After some successes selling single short stories to such venues as Tales of the Talisman magazine, Allegory eZine, and the anthology publisher Sam’s Dot Publications,she found a home, Otter Libris, for an upcoming collection of short fiction and her first novel (also coming soon).
She continues to hone her craft and is working on novels involving clockwork witches and demon fighting pirates. Michelle hopes one day to be able to write full-time, which would no doubt make her husband happy and would please two cats who would prefer her at home as much as possible to attend to can-opening and belly-rubbing duties.
