This bio would be more interesting if I could fictionalize it…
I am an East Coast girl (Metro NYC to be exact), born and bred and with some slight princess traits. For example, “camping” is staying in a hotel without a pool.
Writing has always been my dream, my goal, the way my brain and my heart found a happy place. When I was five my mom got me a subscription to a Disney magazine and precocious early reader that I was, I immediately caught on to the fact that someone, indeed, WROTE these stories. That it was a real profession and from then I was locked in to what I wanted to do.
Of course it took me til just past my fortieth birthday to fully succeed by having my first novel, “Faith & Fidelity” published, but I’ve been writing for decades and whether or not I made a dime, it was always my “must do” thing.
In the meantime I’ve freelanced, worked in offices, managed a bookstore, lived in LA, starved and prospered and became a married mom in the ‘burbs.
Right now my wonderful husband and my darling son and I live in a cute house in the NJ suburbs; we share our abode with three cats, a hamster and approximately 100 fish (warning: when the pet store says “they’re all male!” don’t believe them). Life is good and I am beyond grateful to my family and friends and fans who’ve brought me to this point.
I love to talk to people about writing and books and my book(s) so feel free to drop a line at teremichaelsblog @ gmail.com
