Author Biography

Michelle was born in Wales, where men are, "real men," women are, "real women," and sheep are ... very, very worried. She left for Hallam Uni in Sheffield to study computers, where IT would become the springboard in to many different worlds.

Being transsexual, Michelle says she has dual Mars/Venus nationality and when she transitioned in the early 90's there was a lot of prejudice around. She also took part in support groups, helping others like her, and that came with its own emotional baggage. Never one to miss an opportunity, however, she used that pain to feed a dark sense of humour which pops up now and then in her writings.

IT being one of those things that many industries rely on, she was able to work in many places and meet a wide array of colourful characters. These include a steel works, the banking sector, a perfume manufacturing company, toiletries, pharmacies and more, as well as spending two years travelling across Europe working for some of the industry big guns.

Her writing début came in the mid '90s when she wrote specialist, hard adult fiction for a small press at the tender age of 25. Life had other plans for her, however, and that was short lived. When it came to her mid thirties, she had a story that she wanted to tell.

It was 2014 before that story made it out in to the wild and Michelle got feedback that she had missed her calling. So once more, with a small press, she is to be found hammering away at the keyboard. This time, however, she is writing for the general populace rather than the specialist market that has probably long forgotten her small name...
