Michelle L. Teichman grew up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She loves to write, read, and mostly talk about those two things incessantly. She also loves her wife, her dog, her family, wine, bourbon, and pretty much anything to do with women’s rights, LGBTQ causes, progressive worldwide movements and outreach, and the supernatural.

In 2007, Michelle graduated from the most exclusive writing program in Canada.

Her mentors include:

  • Susan Swan (“The Wives of Bath,” upon which the movie “Lost and Delirious” was based)
  • Richard Teleky (“The Paris Years of Rosie Kamin”)
  • Shyam Selvadurai (“Funny Boy”)
  • Jove Belle (“Cake”)

Michelle is the author of Amazon Bestseller Rescue Me and the 2016 Rainbow Award Honorable Mention The Space Between.
