Michelle Gable is the New York Times Bestselling author of A PARIS APARTMENT, I'LL SEE YOU IN PARIS, THE BOOK OF SUMMER, and THE SUMMER I MET JACK.

Michelle grew up in San Diego and attended The College of William & Mary, where she majored in accounting, as most aspiring writers do. After a twenty-year career in finance, Michelle now writes full-time. She lives in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California, with her husband, two daughters, and what is quickly becoming a menagerie: one cat, one bunny, and a lab/jindo mix recently rescued from the dog meat trade in Thailand.

It was not intentional, and just how the stories ended up coming together. But now I kind of wish I'd planned it that way. ;)(less)

Hi Shel!
I hadn't seen this earlier--sorry for the delay! Yes, wherever possible I try to visit. You'll notice that my characters tend to live in nice places. ;) I'd always wanted to write about Nantucket and when I saw the Vanity Fair article about the homes in Sconset, I knew this would be my angle. I've been several times and two summers ago my family and I actually stayed in a house ON Baxter Road. Of course, on the non-cliff side. Glad you enjoyed it. I loved writing that book. (less)

Madcap Young Adult novel narrated by the youngest of five children in the lead-up to her sister's wedding. Problems, shenanigans, and chaos ensue. There aren't any big surprises here, but it's a fun read with well-defined and interesting characters.

Had to add a "90s" shelf for this--I guess it's soon becoming a historical time period. ;) Loved the hoops-playing protagonist in this coming-of-age novel. With two athletic teens of my own, and having personally come of age in the 90s, much of this ...more

Incredibly unique, big-hearted debut. It's very difficult to describe the many facets to this Australian novel, though to me it was first and foremost a coming-of-age adventure with a heavy side of addiction and a sprinkle of magical realism. The cha ...more

Fantastic memoir written by a woman who loses her (fascinating, complicated, famous in some circles) father far too soon. Beautifully written and an excellent listen on audiobook.
