Michelle wrote her first script on spec for a producer who wanted to turn her first novel, Pride and Premiership, into a drama. And while the drama didn’t get made, the script did open many doors for her.
Michelle likes to hold a mirror up to society through her writing, telling stories that resonate with her audience. Much of her original work gives a voice to those who traditionally have been ignored or undervalued, such as women, children, ethnic minorities and the working classes and she has continued to emphasise human moments even when writing for historical fantasy drama – A Discovery of Witches.
Contemporary, sometimes challenging but, as in life, ‘never without humour’ is her motto. Not one to venture far from the kettle, she has been known to write in the kitchen, but at the first glimpse of sunshine she is drawn straight outside to write in the garden!
