Michelle Moreland


Michelle Moreland was born in Chicago Illinois in 1989. As an innocent child, she could have never imagined the tumultuous direction her life would take. From starting life in a broken home, to unimaginable situations that a child should never have to endure, she faced many obstacles. At an early age, she was a child of the system, a foster child that was bounced from place to place unable to have a sense of stability or security, this caused her to feel all alone in the world. Struggling to find herself as well as dealing with obstacles and hardships proved to be an everyday challenge. Now 27, a single mother to two amazing sons, her struggles continue as she tries to overcome the obstacles life has thrown her way while still coping with a traumatic upbringing that clearly has tried to tear her down, but because of her strength to succeed she has not allowed it. Through her life experiences she hopes to help others in similar situations. Michelle strives to be an inspiration to others who feel as she once did, to show others that no matter what life throws at you, you are not alone, you too can choose your own destiny and better yourself. Her new book titled "Secrets Change" is an emotional and heartfelt collection of poetry that allows her to inspire and give hope to others.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My children inspire me to get out of bed each day, mostly by jumping on my head and screaming :). I have been writing poetry since the fourth grade but what really inspired me to try to publish a poetry book was my children. I have two young boys and would love them to have something to look forward to read from "mommy".
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
As a mother of two boys most of my time that I am not writing I spend working and taking care of them. The moments that I actually get to sit and write are scarce but I would say that those moments are the reasons for some of my best work.
