Michele Holmes spent her childhood and youth in Arizona and northern California – often with her head in a book instead of out enjoying the sunshine. She has been married to her high school sweetheart for more than twenty years, and they live in Utah, having traded the beach for the mountains.
Michele graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in elementary education – something that has come in handy with her five children, all of whom require food, transportation, or help with their homework the moment she sits down at her computer. In spite of all the interruptions, Michele is busy at work, with more story ideas in her head than she will likely ever have time to write.
Michele’s first published novel, Counting Stars, won the 2007 Whitney Award for best romance. The companion novel, a romantic suspense titled All the Stars in Heaven was a 2009 Whitney finalist. My Lucky Stars continues the series. Michele also enjoys writing historical romance. Her first, Captive Heart, was published by Covenant in 2011 and is a Whitney finalist.
