A #1 Amazon Bestseller, M.L. (Michele) Callahan is a science fiction and romance fanatic and full time writer whose earliest movie memories are of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and light sabers. (Still waiting on Santa to come through on that one.) She wrote her first short story at age eleven about five friends who fell into another dimension and had to save the Earth - all in ten, sloppy but action packed, wide-ruled notebook pages. Her mother inspired a love of reading and writing and Michele writes seven days a week. She writes sci-fi action adventure as ML Callahan, and romance as Michele Callahan.

I never feel like a story is finished. I never feel like the story is good enough. There is SO much in my mind that doesn't make it onto the page that I feel like there is no way I could have done the story justice. When a reader reaches out to tell me they liked my book, it is like being struck by lightning! I wanted to leap out of my chair and scream, "Yes! I really did it! I don't suck!"

I have finally made peace with "good enough" thanks to something Orson Scott Card wrote in the opener to a reprint of Ender's Game. He basically said that the world he creates when he writes a book isn't his world, it's not the world he sees in his head as an author. Each reader creates their own world by interacting with the words he gave them, and for every reader that world will be unique and unknowable by anyone else. I found that to be profound, and beautiful. And I decided to stop worrying about writing a 'perfect' book. I decided to simply write the best story I could and trust each person who reads my books to make the story into a unique and worthwhile experience for themselves. Knowing that I've reached someone, and the world they created with my words made them happy? That's the absolute best.(less)

These days writer's block only happens to me when I don't know one of my characters well enough. They have a secret I don't know, or they don't want to do what I think they should. When I get writer's block I sit down with a notebook and create a "details" page about each of my characters and just start writing stuff down. History. Education. Parents. Dreams. Fears. Whatever pops into my head. They'll reveal something that will get my plot moving again. For me, it's the characters every time.(less)

“If you want to find out what a man is to the bottom, give him power. Any man can stand adversity — only a great man can stand prosperity. It is the glory of Abraham Lincoln that he never abused power only on the side of mercy”
Robert Ingersoll

Washington Irving

C.G. Jung
“People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
