I first heard about Michelle and her books in the best way possible — word of mouth. I bought the first in her self-published "Dark" series — kind of space opera/science fiction romance. I loved it, bought the rest in the series, then discovered she was also a traditionally published historical writer, and a writer of historical mysteries, so I bought those too. And that's not all she writes. Find out more about Michelle here.
