Writing has always been a part of Michelle's life and it was love of writing that led her to graduate magna cum laude with a degree in Professional Writing which she then used to write and edit technical manuals and reports for Los Alamos National Labs and Sandia National Labs. Needless to say, such writing left her craving something....juicier. Around this time, she read her first historical romance and she was hooked! Her first novel (which you will NEVER read!) was soon followed by other, much better manuscripts (which hopefully you will read!).

Well, for the ideas, it can be sparked by one line in a song (for example, one of the dramatic scenes in A Lady's Secret was sparked by the song Chasing Cars) and I will start to build forward and backward for that idea. Many of my Regency/Victorian book ideas have come from pillaging secondary characters in another. Sometimes as I get to know the secondary character, their story unfolds in my head and I know I have to tell it. Other times, as with the book I'm currently working on, a reader will say "I loved The Lady Ordinary, but what happened to Josephine." When that actually happened, I was like, "pffft, she's just a secondary character. We don't need to know what happened to her." And then Josephine started whispering in my ear (I swear, that's what it feels like!) and it just goes from there. I think the most important thing is to simply be open to ideas. To say, "Hmm, I wonder what would happen if..." and allow your subconscious free reign to run with it!(less)

Picture I had no idea how long it had been since I posted here! I think keeping up the whole Facebook page has fulfilled my "need to share." And in fact, this blog entry began as a Facebook post. It was only when I was in paragraph three that I thought, "oh, hey, this sounds like a blog!" And so here we are...
