This is pretty much what I look like.

My name’s Michela and I write middle grade science fiction and fantasy. And I know this question is on your mind, so let’s just get it out of the way right now: It’s pronounced “mee-KE-la.” But I’ll respond to anything that’s close enough!

I live in the Greater Boston area with my husband and son. Before I moved to Boston in the summer of 2017, I was a student at Brigham Young University, where I studied folklore, adolescent literature, and creative writing under the pretense of being an English major. I’ve been writing seriously since 2011.
