I grew up in southwest Denver with 5 sisters and a brother. Of course in the 1960's, that meant somewhere near 1st and Federal. Now southwest Denver is closer to Chatfield Reservoir. I was fifteen when I was spirited away by my mother and stepfather to the strange land of Sioux Falls, SD, where I wrote my first short story. It was a paranormal romance about the ghost of a man's first wife trying to kill his second wife. Like so many things teenagers wr...more

Michele Poague BIG THANKS TO JUDGE 16 WHO READ AND EVALUATED HEIR TO POWER FOR THE 19TH ANNUAL WRITER'S DIGEST SELF-PUBLISHED BOOK AWARDS
On a scale of 1 to 5, with one meaning 'Poor' and 5 meaning 'Excellent', Judge 16 gave Heir to Power a "5" across the board for Plot, Grammar, Character Development and Production Quality/Cover Design. Judge 16 also offered these comments: "First in a series, this science fiction novel conjures up a fascinating world replete with an isolated community set in its way which has come to terms with a mysterious outsider. The community, populated by extra large people, possesses an extremely valuable healing crystal that it desperately protects. A vault with remnants of our current era is discovered, leading to odd events. Healers as wall as strange customs are shown in vivid scenes. The characters come alive with recognizable emotions as they struggle to preserve their way of life. A map of the region and a rundown of the key characters are both useful appendages"...

Michele Poague Saw the news about Anne McCaffrey - she was an inspiration to me and one of the reasons I am a writer today. She will be missed. Rest in Peace.
