Michelle writes literary fiction with a fabulist bent. Born and raised in the United States Southwest, she attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ, and graduated summa cum laude with a BA in English. She desperately wishes she had become a badass rock ‘n’ roller; however, being neither badass nor rock ‘n’ roll, she instead lives out her fantasies by writing about musicians and going to an alarming amount of live shows (in those golden days of yore pre-COVID-19). If you let her, she will happily talk your ear off about most ’90s indie artists/bands, and godspeed (you! black emperor) should you ever bring up Neutral Milk Hotel in casual conversation.

Michelle works in marketing for a neat little audio tech company based in Sydney, Australia, but resides in Portland, Oregon with her partner, tortoiseshell cat, and a menagerie of musical instruments (all of which have names).

She is represented by Ronald Gerber @ Lowenstein Associates.

and out in the dark the world is still rolling
kids in their cars, cigarette smoking
and all that they are just reeks with the sweetest belief
