Michelle was born in Buffalo Children's Hospital in Buffalo, NY, on March 1, 1960, thus depriving her mother of a surf'n'turf dinner. She has spent the last 50+ years trying to make it up to her.
Michelle has worked in various jobs over the years including hay baler, cow milker, cleaning woman for the rich lady down the road, waitress, darkroom technician, gas station attendant, horse exerciser, dog sitter, cat feeder, egg picker, and, yes, systems analyst and bartender.
She is owned by two cats, one greyhound, and ten chickens.
But she is also blessed with three daughters, three grandsons, and a very tolerant husband.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Our big baby of a greyhound who stands at the bottom of the stairs and "sings" us awake. That, and a fresh pot of coffee.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I read! I am a voracious reader; I can devour a book in two or three days.
