Michelle Athy once threw herself around the living room, shouting the alphabet at the top of her lungs as a toddler. She is the author of the historical novella Pearl and the short story "When Mary Left." Her story "Haunted Lake" was released in the anthology Full Dark. She is a graduate of Emerson College's Writing, Literature, and Publishing program and also holds an M.S. in Publishing from Pace University. Michelle lives in New York City, where she was born and raised.

Michelle interned at the Sarah Jane Freymann Literary Agency and W.W. Norton, among other places, before trying her hand at self-publishing.

She began blogging in 2009 and hasn't stopped since. The Sunflower's Scribbles is mostly a writing blog, but also a book blog and a blog about outings and adventures and musings and rants...

Michelle is currently working on several writing projects. She is active on social media and also on the AbsoluteWrite Watercooler.
