Making up stories of her own has always been one of Michelle’s passions. She received her first rejection letter at the age of ten for Keri the Koala Baby, and has been writing ever since. A love of literature led her to major in English at the University of Newcastle, where she completed a PhD (with a focus on romance and feminism) in 2019.
Her first book for Harlequin Mills & Boon was published in 2007. Her books have been nominated for numerous awards including the RITA, the Australian RUBY, the Booksellers Best Award (which she won in 2013), the National Readers Choice Awards, and many others.
She's a sucker for happy endings, heroines who have a secret stash of chocolate, and heroes who know how to laugh. She lives in Newcastle on Australia's east coast with her own romantic hero, a house full of dust and books, and an eclectic collection of 60s and 70s vinyl.
