Michelle Dennison also writes as Julianne Alcott. Michelle started scribbling down stories more or less as soon as she was able to form her ABC’s.
She has a Diploma in Horticulture and a degree in Theology, and is Mummy to a gorgeous little girl who has just started Grade 2. She is currently a media assistant in a Primary School, but whatever else she does in her life, Michelle is always a writer.
Growing up, she was also a copious reader, and used this experience to decide what kind of stories she wanted to write. Little Women was the first book that made her realise that a novel can change someone’s life.
Love stories are a must, but often with some added spice . . . spies, murder, or saving the environment. She wants her writing to make a difference. People must ideally finish one of her novels, and find themselves back in the real world with something special they didn’t have before. Something to make their lives a little richer, and their burdens feel a little lighter.
She enjoys movies, chocolate and learning new things, especially when they can be used as research for a new novel.
Her writing inspirations are Jane Austen, Mary Stewart and Agatha Christie.
