Michelle Marie Weidenbenner
“ Michelle has a bachelor of science degree in Business and ha's been published in Adoptive Families, Brio, Writer's Digest, and won awards in the Writer's Journal, the ACFW Genesis, and the 2013 Aspiring Writers Contest. ”
Michelle is a fulltime employee of God's kingdom, writing and encouraging writers every day. She's often a sucker for emotional stories, her sensitive side fueling the passion for her character's plights, often giving her the ability to show readers the "other" side of the story.
She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home from the hospital Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting--without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn't so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which might come in handy with book reviews.
Michelle is living her dream--writing every day and thanking God for the stories He puts in her path. When Michelle isn't writing she's winning ugly on the tennis court. She's known as "Queen of the Rim Shots." No joke. It's ugly.
Her debut novel, CACHE A PREDATOR, a geocaching mystery, was launched July, 2013. This novel is an Amazon bestseller in the crime thriller category. "Cache a Predator grabbed me from the very first chapter and into the unhinged predatory mind of a vigilante on the rampage for justice. I am a fan of SVU, Bones, and Dexter, thus this novel is right up my alley. I love the unpredictable plot and the pacing is faultless. The characterization is the best I have read so far."
Michelle blogs at Random Writing Rants where she teaches teens and adults how to get published.
Look for her next novel, SCATTERED LINKS, a young adult multi-cultural novel, available January 20, 2014. "This novel pulls its characters from the gutters and, in the end, celebrates the tenacity of the human spirit."
