Hello, I’m Michelle. I am a writer and full-time parent living in Portland, Oregon.

Having kids made me want to take writing seriously. Was this because my children were magical angels whose every adorable action needed to be shared with the world? No! Was it because becoming a parent threw me for such a loop that I needed to write to regain my tattered shreds of sanity? Getting warmer…

I’ve worked as a graphic designer, wedding invitation consultant, retail manager, nanny, martial arts instructor, small business owner, and novelty teeth salesperson.

Other interests include paper crafts, funny TV, riding my bike, cookie taste-testing, and staring into space at coffee shops.

Thank you for reading,



If I had three hands I could take a selfie while holding both children.
