Michelle Mitchell has always been creative; the builder of play forts, and the writer of numerous songs that she hoped to hear on the radio. She always enjoyed singing, dancing, reading and writing. One of her dreams was to be a backup dancer for Janet Jackson, but when that didn’t happen, she continued to focus on songwriting. She knew she could shine brightest if she could work in a field where she could create, but she had an awkward start in finding her voice.
A Georgia native, Michelle attended Georgia Southern University where she majored in Communication Arts and minored in Journalism. After graduating, she had a short stint as a feature writing before returning to school and entering corporate America. Needing a creative outlet in between courses, Michelle got inspired and began working on her first novel, Truth Is....
In December 2015, Brown Girls Books put out a call for submissions for an anthology called, The Ex Chronicles. Michelle's submission was selected out of the 300 submissions received. The anthology was published March 8th, and would be her first published work. Followed by the Single Mama Dating Drama anthology, where she contributed a short story titled, Scattered Seeds.
Her debut novel and first independently published manuscript, Truth Is… was released on November 1, 2016. She released a Christmas novella in 2017 entitled, Bells Will Be Ringin’ and is currently working on her third release, Kissing Strangers: Tainted Love scheduled for release in Feburary 2018.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys trying new restaurants, traveling, and reading. Michelle is a die-hard fanatic of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta Hawks. She still resides in Georgia, where she is a member of Pilgrim Baptist Church in Marietta. You can write her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
