Born and raised in Southern California, a Disney kid growing up, and now residing in the Joshua Tree desert, Michelle writes about her experiences as a kid, her passion for books of all genres, and her life as a wife and retired homeschooling Mom.
“My goal when I write anything is only to share my point of view about a subject, whether it be parenting, reading, or living in the social media, smartphone-connected world we find ourselves in.”
Michelle went to the University of La Verne in California to study stage design and ended up working as a stagehand for Knott’s Berry Farm and then Disneyland. She married her long-time coworker, bringing into her life her step-daughter, mother-in-law, and soon two boys of her own. After leaving “show business” to stay at home with her kids, she stumbled across homeschooling and jumped into hands-on living and learning right alongside the kids. After years of struggling with city life and trying to make ends meet, they decided to move the whole family out to the rural desert and have never looked back.
She currently writes about anything that catches her attention, which is a lot since she’s a bit squirrel-like that department, but her goal is to finish the part-time parent stage she is in (her youngest has one foot out the door) and move on to publishing her memoir along with the myriad of short stories she’s continually cooking up.
