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.
Life is exciting if you’re one of the top RCMP officers in the country. With a few good years under her belt and a promotion so close she can almost touch it, Staff Sergeant Kristen Bailey of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police has everything figured out. Until she meets Ashleigh Paige.
Beautiful, naïve, intelligent, and trusting, Ashleigh is the perfect possible lead for Bailey’s case. All she has to do is get close to her. The only problem is Ashleigh’s a paramedic, and in Toronto, paramedics and cops don’t mix.
Undercover and searching for answers as a Toronto police officer, Bailey uses her charm to get Ashleigh to trust her and open up about what she knows surrounding the case of a dead police officer and the paramedics who might have murdered him.
The trouble is, the closer she gets to Ashleigh, the more the line between informant and intimate gets blurred.
