Mikelyn H. Bolden

Biography

Mikelyn Bolden grew up in southeast Alabama on a seventeen-acre piece of land with no cable television. This means she knows how to kill snakes, fry okra and eat boiled peanuts. She also says “yes ma’am” a lot and has a standing date with college football on Saturdays in the fall.

Mikelyn comes from a long line of devoted storytellers and began writing short allegorical tales in elementary school. She became an obsessive journalist about this time and was frequently known for getting lost in her world of imaginative stories (Ahem, still does).

Throughout high school and college she used her writing and leadership skills for various inner city humanitarian projects around the world. The perspective gained from these ventures led her to choose a career in speech-language pathology. Though she is now writing fulltime, she still enjoys “playing” with little people and empowering adults through this field.

Escape from Differe is her first novel and was birthed mostly out of her own personal story, as she will readily admit that she hears voices in her head and often talks to herself just like her main character in The Waiz Chronicles.

Depending on the day, Mikelyn can be found with her husband in Dothan, Alabama, on the Auburn University campus, or traveling the globe in search of inspiration for her next story. She is expecting her first child early next year.
