Who am I? I was named after The Beatles song, "Michelle". My favorite color is green, though pink and purple come in close behind it. I was an "early bloomer". I've kept journals from the age of eleven. They are full of angst and tears over the boys I loved, and, since they also document my happily ever after, they might just qualify as the first romance novel I ever wrote, lol.

One of my favorite things about writing romance is getting inside the male mind and writing the guy's POV. Such fun! 

The first books I fell in love with were The Baby-sitters Club books. Then came Sweet Dreams, Dolly Fiction, and Harlequin M&B. Now I read all kinds of romance, including contemporary, paranormal/ urban fantasy, teen, & new adult. I spend far too much time on Amazon and Goodreads.

Some authors I've read so far this year are: Belle Aurora, J.R Ward, Jennifer Probst, Sabrina York, Nalini Singh, Colleen Hoover & Sarah Mayberry.

Things I need in a romance novel are: a dynamic emotional and sexual tension that engages me from the start, a hero both myself and the heroine can't help but fall in love with, and a connection between characters so strong, neither of them can walk away from it.

Things I hate in a romance novel are: bitchy, snarky heroines who heap it on the hero. Sure, they may be clever, but I simply don't understand their appeal. I also hate a hero who chases endlessly and gets shot down repeatedly. The heroes I love can always tempt the heroine to lower her defenses :D
That's me in a nutshell! Hope you enjoy my work :-)
