The oldest of five children, she is generally an organized mess with crazy eclectic tastes. She has a B.S. in History, a M.A. in English, an insatiable love of books, and more weird quirks than she’d like to admit.

Michelle’s a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl who secretly wishes she could run around town in a big, poofy dress from the 1600s and hopes to someday be able to get away with crazy stuff like that by chalking it up to her eccentric writer personality.

I often get great ideas in the shower or while doing dishes, I think because those are generally times when nothing else is going on and my mind can wander.

My favorite part of the process is the brainstorming part - sitting down and mapping out a new story before I ever write a word. Editing is my second favorite part. I love taking that first draft and polishing it up :)(less)

So You Have to Write a Poem by Michelle McLean
"A Versed Review from Me to You

The thought of poems scares me much,
My words don’t flow they twist and crunch.
The regulated rules to know,
Alas I have no skills to grow.
Then after all this time I see,
Michelle has made it fun for me!
I didn’t know..." Read more of this review »

“It was never you. Leaving you was the hardest thing I've ever done and I've regretted that decision every second since the moment I walked out. I've made a lot of dumbass mistakes in my life, but letting you go is the one I'd give anything to erase.
