While crunching numbers and forming revenue projections in her day job, Michele Arris is always plotting out her characters’ next move. Even when she’s not seated in front of her laptop, she’s writing scenes in her head.
A book lover practically since she could read words on a page, the romance genre has always captivated her; so much so, she decided to try her hand at it. "A Deal for Love" was born. It is Book One in the steamy Captured Heart Series and her first erotic romance novel, which won the 2015 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® award for Erotic Romance.
Michele migrated from the Big Easy to the North East. When she isn’t writing about strong-willed, twenty-something, professional heroines and the complex heroes who strive to have them, she’s reading all types of romance genres, loves to workout, watches period classics (Little Dorrit, Persuasion, Young Victoria to name a few), is a holistic enthusiast/vitamin junkie, and spending time with family and friends, simply enjoying life.
