Michelle M. Pillow® is a Romance, Cozy Mystery, and Women's Fiction Author with over a million books sold.

As long as she can remember, Michelle has had a strange fascination with anything supernatural and sci-fi. After discovering historical romance novels, it was only natural that the supernatural and love/romance elements should someday meet in her wonderland of a brain. She's glad they did for their children have been pouring onto the computer screen ever since.

Michelle loves to travel and try new things, whether it's a paranormal investigation of an old Vaudeville Theatre or climbing Mayan temples in Belize. She's addicted to movies and used to drive her mother crazy while quoting random scenes with her brother. Though it has yet to happen, her dream is to be a zombie in a horror movie. (She came close as a refugee extra on SyFy's Z Nation, Fall 2016!) Michelle is involved with various film and historical documentary projects with her filmmaker husband.

For the most part she can be found wearing pajama pants while writing in her office, and enjoying a cup of coffee.
