Writing has always been Michelle Boomer's first passion, and writing about animals started at a very young age. Michelle wrote her first animal adventure when she was 7, not realizing this would lead her to writing and illustrating her first middle grade novel as an adult. Sally the Snake -The Quest to the Beginning was released in Aug. 2016 and is the first in a series of animal adventures.
Michelle has been educating children for over a decade. She taught meditation and yoga with her children after completing a yoga introductory course in 2013. This also led to Michelle becoming a Yoga Alliance certified Children's yoga teacher through Young Yoga Masters 95 hour course.
After volunteering at Mountsberg Conservation, a park with Conservation Halton and working with the birds of prey, she educated children about these magnificent raptors and began to follow rescue sites and sanctuaries for abused and rescued animals. Witnessing the children's sadness as they learned these creatures are endangered led to the development of her wildlife programs.
Michelle Boomer lives with her husband and their two fur babies Izzy and Chewbacca, in Southern Ontario. When not writing or researching wildlife on the computer or the nature channel, Michelle loves hiking and photographing Mother Nature's splendor.
