A former elementary teacher, Michelle has always loved finding ways to help writers put their ideas out into the world, and she’s super excited to do just that for many different authors at Mascot Books. Michelle earned a B.A. in English Literature from Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, where she later worked for a small nonfiction publishing company before moving to Virginia with her dog, Gilead, and her partner, Will. She reads mostly sci-fi and speculative fiction (the weirder the better!), drinks mostly coffee, and spends most of her free time at skate parks and hiking trails.
