Michelle Anderson

SWEET HOME, Oregon, United States


Home page:

Born to unusual, but nice, parents, Michelle grew up rather uneventfully, living
mainly in the deep south (Alabama). Later Michelle would learn that it was her
parents' love for her that not only brought them together, but had kept them
together. And so life was ideal in many respects and distressing in others.
Eventually though the family did scatter like leaves on an autumn morning.
Fortunately Michelle had been able to extract a sincere appreciation for love,
beauty, and an abiding respect for those who at least try.

The single greatest influence in her life was the remarkable time spent with her
paternal grandmother; it was under this influence that she thrived. Her grandmother
introduced her to not only fine Literature, but also the Arts and the Opera. And it
was beloved grandmother who told her that if she wanted to be a great writer she
must first learn to be an avid reader.

Early adult life would be peppered with indecision, failings, and the haunting of
things not learned in childhood. But as is the case with most sincere artist, out of
the angst of life came a great capacity for creativity.

Michelle considers her writing a gift...a joy, a tremendous responsibility, and
something that helps to define her life.
Ms. Anderson is a graduate of Oregon State University and is currently working on
a master's degree.

She lives in very picturesque Central Oregon with her two children.
