Michelle Garren Flye is a mother, writer and editor based in coastal North Carolina. She obtained her degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1992. Not liking the hours required of a journalist, she went on to obtain a Master's in Library and Information Science from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 1997. When her first child was born in 2000, she packed her diplomas away and began a new life as a stay-at-home mom, which fortunately afforded her the opportunity to pursue her writing on a semi-regular basis.
Michelle has served in various editorial capacities for several on-line and print literary endeavors, including Dark Recesses, edifice WRECKED, Horror Library Volume 1, Horror Library Volume 3, Butcher Shop Quartet, Butcher Shop Quartet II and Tattered Souls.
Michelle's work can be found online and in print, including a few she's really proud of in Opium, Smokelong Quarterly, Flashquake, the print anthology Our Shadows Speak and her only zombie story which recently appeared in Sonar4 Publications' Tooth Decay. Her romance novels Secrets of the Lotus and Winter Solstice are available from Lyrical Press, Inc., and her upcoming romance novel Where the Heart Lies will be published by Carina Press in July 2012. Michelle also self-published a fiction book Weeds and Flowers for the Kindle.
