*Nan* Michelle I am really excited because I finally got Boneyard and I can't wait to read it this weekend. I loved The Tunnels and hope you continue to write more books in the future.


Bradley One of my sisters is named Michelle.. heh, thank you for allowing me to become your friend. =)


Rowena Hi, Michelle,

Thank you very much for finding me and honoring me with your friendship.

The Boneyard sounds intriguing!

Best wishes,

Rowena Cherry

D.K. Hi Michelle,

Do you have another book scheduled to be published soon?

Just curious.

D.K. I checked it out, Michelle. Sounds exciting. Now I have two things to look forward to in November, Thanksgiving and your book. LOL.

Michelle And I promise I only use two sticks of butter in the book, not four, so ir qualifies as low-fat ;)


Michelle Thanks so much for saying so, I really appreciate it! Hope you enjoy The Tunnels, too...

Looking forward to your next book! Still trying to track down a print edition of your first one. I'm hoping a trip to Powell's in a few weeks will solve it."





Mackenzie Michelle,

Thanks for the add! :)

message 10: by D.K.

D.K. Hi Michelle, question for you. Will the Kelly Jones novels be the only series you write, or are you considering branching out to other characters and subject matters? Just curious, thanks.


Michelle Hi DK-
Actually, as soon as I hand in the next book in the Kelly series (Monday! Argh!) I'm going back to work on a standalone set in San Francisco. I'm pretty excited to tackle it...


message 12: by D.K.

D.K. I have to give authors credit that can stick with one series pretty much throughout their entire writing career. I think I would start to lose interest after a couple of years.

Michelle I feel the same way. And to be honest, I've recently read a few series books that have disappointed. I give huge credit to authors who can keep a series interesting for more than four books...
