My super awesome #secretproject revealed!

I am freaking delighted to finally give you the scoop on my next release! A co-written book with my girl, MINDY HAYES!

FIRST the title . . . 

NEXT the blurb . . . 

On June 18, 1993, Flight 397 crashed off the coast of Long Island.
But this story isn’t about the crash. Not completely.

This is a story about two high school seniors living very different lives, who share one connection: they both lost parents on that fateful flight.

Slowly, letters bridge the gap between California and Pennsylvania as Ruby Kaminski and Brett Pratt find a way to remember the past while looking toward the future.

This is a story about hope, paper planes, and the other things they lost.

Sounds fabulous, right? 

LAST the amazing cover. . . designed by Mindy and me, but brought to reality by our girl, Starla Huchton with

AND the rest of the details . . .

Michele writes novels with fairytale love for everyday life. Romance is always central to her plots where the genres range from Coming of Age Fantasy and Drama to New Adult Romantic Suspense.

Having grown up in both the cold, quiet town of Topsham, Maine and the steamy, southern hospitality of Mobile, Alabama, Michele is something of an enigma. She is an avid Yankees fan, loves New England, being outdoors and misses snow. However she thinks southern boys are hotter, Alabama football is the only REAL football out there and sweet tea is the best thing this side of heaven and her children's laughter! 

Her family, an amazing husband and three awesome kids, have planted their roots in the middle of Michele's two childhood homes in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Mindy is the author of the YA Fantasy, The Faylinn Novels and Contemporary Romance, The Willowhaven Series. Currently, she's working on the Coming of Age Romance, The Day That Saved Us.
