Michelle Hughes grew up as a military brat and now calls Verbena, Alabama home. Her love of romance began early in life when she would sneak her granny’s bodice rippers into the bathroom for great plots to play out with her Barbie’s. Now she writes about innocent virgins meeting the ultimate alpha male. She’s the mother of five great kids and married to the greatest fisherman on earth with a real job. Prior to a career in writing, Michelle was a singer/songwriter and hosted a televised talent showcase long before American Idol became popular.
