Michelle Richards-Graham wrote the first draft of her first novel when she was 14 years old after she was molested. The process helped her overcome what had happened to her, and she continued writing because becoming a published author had been her childhood dream.
Michelle's YA books tackle realistic subject matter: first love, friendships, broken homes, abuse, and the tough decisions to be made in the middle of it all. Michelle has made speaking appearances at schools and events hosted by groups and organizations that support adolescents and women.
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 is currently working on her next book.
