Another Introduction... Michelle Willis

This introduction is an interesting one...

The story Michelle Willis wrote was posted on her blog and spotted by Sonia Wright, who sent her my way so that we could publish it in the next collection. I am very glad she did, it is a lovely story, heartwarming.

So, we have another author on board, this will be the largest collection yet... very exciting.

To any other authors, I would like submissions in by this Monday latest... check the submissions tab.

Anyway, a bit about Michelle...

Michelle Willis is a mum of two, who works from home as an accounting technician and creates beautiful crocheted items for sale. As a child, Michelle wanted to be one of three things: A librarian, an accountant or an archaeologist. Michelle began her working life in a college library then moved into shop work.
 
At twenty four though, life changed and Michelle felt the need to change things. The chance came to retrain as an accounting technician and Michelle ceased it! She worked as an assistant to the accountant and a payroll clerk for various companies.
 
After marriage and qualifying, Michelle became a stay at home mum to her two children and a carer for her husband who has Borderline Personality disorder and is also partially deaf. Michelle also suffers from Post Natal Depression and copes by crocheting and writing short stories and poems.
 
Michelle began writing at a young age and developed a passion for it when she studied English Literature at college. The praise from her tutors for her first short story ‘Why?’ made her believe in her own talent. She began writing poetry at nineteen years old at the suggestion of her counsellor following an attempted rape at her place of work. She now takes a lot of her inspiration from the industrial landscape around her.
 
Michelle now lives in Blaenavon, South Wales.
