About this author

Michelle Figley enjoys spending all of her free time reading Young Adult novels, rotting her brain watching too much TV, and daydreaming about living in the Andalusia (Southern) region of Spain. She is a three-time graduate of Indiana University where she studied Spanish Literature, among other things. She lives in beautiful Bloomington, IN with her husband, teenage daughter, and the loves of her life, her two dogs Rocco and Jolson Bear. She is currently writing her next novel, a New-Adult, time travel romance set around the end of the world. The Saints of the Cross is her debut novel.


Thank you to those who have taken the time to read and then review and/or rate The Saints of the Cross. I am humbled. I do enjoy reading your thoughts on the book, seeing what stuck with the reader and learning what did not work with the book. I will carry this knowledge with me as I continue to work on December Burning. Thank you so much, and may all of you have a blessed and prosperous 2014!... Read more of this blog post »

It’s a soul-crushing moment when you have to come to terms with the fact that your decisions have completely destroyed someone else’s life, especially someone you love more than life itself. I know this fact as well as my father does—maybe, more so.Michelle Figley

“For some reason, the despair that's welling up in me is transforming into white-hot rage. I feel it working its way up from my toes, winding around my legs, and burrowing into the pit of my stomach. It spears its razor-sharp tendrils through the pieces of my broken heart. It's crippling, and devastating, and unrelenting. I have only one choice to survive this; I turn that rage outward.”
Michelle Figley, The Saints of the Cross

Hello Mikky!

Thank you so much for reading The Saints of the Cross and I'm glad you are enjoying it. Right now I am working on a separate novel which will be the first in a series, but if you like Saints, I'm sure you will love December Burning. When this book goes to my editor, I may start working on the sequel to Saints. I have had many requests for a follow-up and am working up the story line. Thanks for checking in with me and also for the friendship.

Best, Michelle


Mihaela Florentina Hi,Michelle! Thank you fro the friendship!Right now I'm reading The Saints of the Cross and I'm loving it.Will there be a sequel?
