Michelle Richards-Graham wrote her first story at 6 years old and realized that becoming an author was her dream; what she didn’t know is that her love of writing would collide with her worst nightmare.
Michelle wrote the first draft of It Could Never Happen to Me, her first novel, at 14 years old after becoming a victim of child molestation. Through her writing and with the support of loved ones, Michelle was able to overcome and decided she would continue writing books for young people.
An English major at York University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Michelle graduated with a B.A. and became a freelance journalist and youth columnist. She has made guest-speaking appearances at schools and organizations that support youths.
