Hi. I'm Michele Freeman. I write about true crime cases as well as killer thrillers, horror tales, and sinister short stories. (Read all my short stories for free HERE.)
As New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Michele Bardsley, I write the Broken Heart cozy mysteries and the Violetta Graves paranormal mysteries. I've written more than 40 novels in multiple genres. I've also penned young adult paranormal as Michele Vail.
My work has received many honors and accolades, including the Grand Prize in the Writer’s Digest 74th Annual Contest for A Mother Scorned, the Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice award for Because Your Vampire Said So, and the Crème de la Crème award from the Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc. for A Demon is a Girl's Best Friend.
When I'm not writing, I crochet weird stuff, read creepy fiction, watch and listen to true crime shows, and eat dark chocolate. I live in Texas with my awesome husband and our fur babies.
