Born and raised in the Southeast, award-winning author Patrice Michelle gave up her financial calculator for a keyboard and never looked back. Thanks to an open-minded family who taught her that life isn’t as black and white as we’re conditioned to believe, she pens her novels with the belief that various shades of gray are a lot more interesting. She’s a natural with a point-and-shoot camera, likes to fiddle with graphic design and, to the relief of her family, strums her guitar to an audience of one.
Well, that’s the condensed, back-of-the-book bio about moi, anyway.
As for becoming a writer…I wasn’t one of those writers scribbling stories as soon as I could write, but I was a voracious reader. At the age of fifteen, I told my mom after I’d finished reading a book, “One day, I want to be the one who writes the kind of books readers think about long after they’ve closed it.”

FIVE RANDOM THINGS
- I love to take pictures. I’ve been known to take twenty shots from as many angles just to get the right one. Thank goodness for digital cameras. And the trashcan button. Yep, I took the photos in the slider on the front page…oh, and the moon photo in the header. LOL!
- I’m a dog person.
- My favorite poem is The Power of the Dog by Rudyard Kipling (see #2 above).
- I’m a Scorpio, and though I don’t follow Astrology, I seem to have almost all the Scorpio attributes. Weird how that worked out.
- I’ve never met a “lull in a conversation” I wouldn’t try to fill.
