Hi, I'm Michele BarDsley.

I'm a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of paranormal fiction. Obsessed with dark chocolate, "Supernatural," and all things yarn, I create fictional worlds because, hey, it's a lot more fun than housework. I live happily-ever-after in Texas with my husband and our fur babies.

I've been writing for more than thirty years. I received my first publishing contract in 1998 from pioneer electronic publisher Hard Shell Word Factory for my romantic comedy, Daddy in Training. I've had numerous short stories, novellas, and novels published by electronic, independent, and traditional publishers, including New American Library and Harlequin TEEN. I've also written articles for national magazines such as Writer’s Digest, RT BOOKReviews, and Byline.

My print books have sold more than 300,000 copies and counting. I've won many awards and honors throughout my writing career, including the Grand Prize in the Writer's Digest annual writing contest for my short story A Mother Scorned, a 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 (which you can read here).
