I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?

Okay. I admit it. I am a super jaded reader. It takes a creative plot, larger than life characters, and some sweet turns of phrases to even slightly tickle my reader bone. THE PURSUIT OF TAMSEN LITTLEJOHN not only meets those requirements, it rockets ...more

"Good read

Michelle Griep as always very well written. It's a darker, real-life story than I usually like. She sprinkles hope throughout, and leaves you satisfied at the end. "

"This book on writing has a little bit of everything regardless of where you're at in your writing journey. The book targets the beginning writer and dispels many myths of the writing life but also gives the nuts and bolts of how to get a novel don..." Read more of this review »

“For books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them.”
John Milton, Areopagitica

“It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.”
Charles M. Schulz, It Was a Dark and Stormy Night, Snoopy

“Deeds done in the dark can never remain unexposed.”
Michelle Griep, A Heart Deceived

Jane I didn't realize I could post reviews to Alibris which I receive newsletter from. So I found your book on it and posted you another review. God Bless.


Michelle Griep Wow, thanks so much, Jane! That's great. I really appreciate it!

Rebornbutterfly I have so many favorites! My constant favorite is Jane Austen. I haven't read any Georgette Heyer books, and i've been wanting to! which of hers would you recommend?


message 4: by Lisa

Lisa Greetings! I feel like deja vu since I had just started to get ready for our interview. It's good to see you here. Did you read all the Mary Stewart books? I didn't think I was going to start plugging in everything I read, but every once in a while, I recall someone I loved and then have to sort through them. Am I about the only other person who has an actual copy of hte Areopagitica on her living room book shelf? We had to study it in college.

Lisa
