Born in Detroit, Michigan, Deidra Michele was identified as a dynamic self-starter. At a very young age, the Detroit native knew her life path would lead her to areas within the media; while she penned fiction stories in her notebook and experienced heightened inspiration as her high school’s official activities announcer.
By 23, Deidra Michele tapped into her entrepreneurial spirit and became the owner of her very own nail salon near Detroit; Nails by Michele. Despite her successes, she still had a desire to lend her talents to members within the entertainment industry.
Deidra’s aspirations reached fever pitch after she met and provided manicures to comedians Bernie Mac and Michael Colyar. Acquiring the slight taste of working with entertainers, Deidra Michele decided to take a gamble by shutting the doors of her nail salon to move out west. The decision would prove to pay off in a major way.
Once relocating to sunny California, Deidra Michele embraced her role as an accomplished professional manicurist to the stars offering over 20 years’ experience. Deidra Michele has touched the hands of many Hollywood bigwigs such as Jada and Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez, and Katie Holmes; television stars Duane and Tisha Campbell-Martin, comedians Martin Lawrence and Eddie Griffin, supermodels Naomi Campbell and Beverly Johnson, along with performers Toni Braxton, Kelly Roland, Macy Gray, Brandy and living legend Patti LaBelle to name a selected few.
It was in fact within her career as a manicurist, she received the ultimate nudge of encouragement needed to fulfill her dream of being an authoress; Deidra Michele credits author Tajuana “TJ” Butler, who was also a client. Most importantly, her late mother Dorothy Dawson; a list of notable celebrities, family members and friends and life’s many circumstances as motivation to further her writing career.
The good-spirited writer recently completed her first novel titled County Girl – a story, which surveys relationships, friendships, and triumph and child support issues. The message County Girl conveys, is one theorizing people can clash and still bond together in spite of their differences.
Deidra Michele currently resides in sunny California where she is working on several impending narratives to share with the reading world.
