About the author

Michelle Levigne

<p>On the road to publication, Michelle fell into fandom in college and has 40+ stories in various SF and fantasy universes. She has a bunch of useless degrees in theater/English/film/communication/writing. Even worse, she has (or had) nearly 100 books and novellas with multiple small presses, in science fiction and fantasy, YA, and sub-genres of romance.</p> <p></p> <p>Her official launch into publishing came with winning first place in the Writers of the Future contest in 1990. She was a finalist in the EPIC Awards competition multiple times, winning with&nbsp;<strong><em>Lorien</em></strong>&nbsp;in 2006 and&nbsp;<strong><em>The Meruk Episodes, I-V,</em></strong>&nbsp;in 2010, and was a finalist in the 2018 Realm Award competition, in conjunction with the Realm Makers convention.</p> <p></p> <p>Her training includes the Institute for Children&rsquo;s Literature; proofreading at an advertising agency; and working at a community newspaper. She is a tea snob and freelance edits for a living (MichelleLevigne@gmail.com for info/rates), but only enough to give her time to write.&nbsp;Her newest crime against the literary world is to be co-managing editor at Mt. Zion Ridge Press. Be afraid &hellip; be very afraid.&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p></p> <p>www.Mlevigne.com</p> <p>www.MichelleLevigne.blogspot.com</p> <p>@MichelleLevigne</p>
