Michelle L. Teichman was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where she still resides. Michelle grew up in a well-to-do family of professionals, where emphasis was always placed on education, family, kindness, and excellence, no matter what she chose to pursue. She started writing at a young age, and knew she had talent when she won a short story competition in high school, which saw an acre of wildlife conservation land dedicated in her name. Her father, a prominent Toronto lawyer, wanted Michelle to follow the family tradition, but she heard the calling of quill and quire, and knew that writing was her true vocation.
In 2007, Michelle graduated from the Creative Writing program at York University in Toronto, which at the time was the most exclusive Undergraduate writing program in the country. Her professors included notable Canadian authors Richard Teleky (The Paris Years of Rosie Kamin), Shyam Selvadurai (Funny Boy), and Susan Swan (The Wives of Bath, upon which the movie Lost and Delirious was based). Armed with an Honours Bachelor of Arts, Double Major, Creative Writing and English, Michelle uses what she learned in school, in life, and in love to create inspiring stories that will resonate with readers.
The Space Between is available now.
In 2014, Michelle published The Gentleman: An Alex Lines Novel.
