Writing has always been Michelle'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. She honed her writing skills through general writing courses and through Brian Henry's creative writing course and several writing classes over the years.
Sally the Snake -The Quest to the Beginning was released in 2016 and is the first in a series of animal adventures. She now has a collection of 4 preschool books, released in 2017, Mr. Toad and the Volcano, Bunny and the Rocket ship, The Chocolate Monster and the Curse, The Chocolate Monster and the Witch.
Do or do not,
there is no try.
Michelle volunteered at Mountsberg Conservation in 2008-2009, working with birds of prey and learning about their importance to humans and Mother Nature.. She educated her preschool classes about these raptors, passing on her passion and teaching about other endangered species. Since then, she has taught hundreds of children the importance of wildlife and what can be done to help save our species, and our planet.

This black Jaguar was rescued by Wildcat Sanctuary in 2006 and lived the rest of his days as close to freedom as possible. He passed in December of 2015, a day I will never forget. You can view his memorial slideshow on the Wildcat Sanctuary website.
It is with permission from Wildcat Sanctuary that I use his image on my website and business cards.
Wildcat Sanctuary is a non-profit organization, not open to the public, in Minnesota, US. They are among many who put the lives of animals first and do all they can to bring living free to those who never should have been taken out of the wild.
