About Michelle Proulx

Hi! My name's Michelle, I'm 27, and I currently live in Nova Scotia, Canada. After graduating from the University of Western Ontario, I did a year-long stint in South Korea as an English teacher. I'm back home now, working as a part-time technical writer, full-time aspiring author. I spend my time writing, reading, watching TV, playing video games, going for long, rambling walks, and hanging out with friends.

I published my debut sci-fi/romance novel, Imminent Danger And How to Fly Straight into It, in January 2013. It's a cute sci-fi romance about a teenage girl who's abducted by aliens, is rescued by a dashing space pirate, and goes on an awesome space adventure. The book is available on Amazon -- check it out!

The sequel, Chasing Nonconformity, was published in September 2015. It picks up right where the first left off, so don't miss out on Eris and Varrin's latest adventure!

Also consider having a look at my two free short stories:

"The Coin Collector", about a bumbling Tax and Revenue agent who goes on his first-ever field mission and bites off a bit more than he can chew, and ...

"The Dusk Bugs", based on a personal life experience where I went for a walk in the park and proceeded to nearly have a mental breakdown from the bugs freaking EVERYWHERE.

Great short story. You can feel them crawling over your body. Bugs don't normally view me as an all-you-can-eat buffet, but I can relate.

Having just survived a Greek summer, I can identify with the author's passionate hatred of these tiny flying horrors...

Another great short story by Proulx.
