Tere Michaels

Tere Michaels unofficially began her writing career  at the  age of four when she learned that people got  paid to write  stories. It seemed the most perfect and  logical job in the world and after that, her path was  never in question. (The  romance writer part was  written in the stars—she was  born on Valentine’s  Day.)

It took thirty-six years of “research” and “life  experience” and well… life… before her first book  was published but there are no regrets – she doesn’t  believe in them. Along the way, she had some  interesting jobs in television,  animation, arts education, PR and a national magazine—but she never stopped believing she would eventually earn her living writing stories about love.

She is a member of RWA, Rainbow Romance Writers, and Liberty States Fiction Writers. Her home base is a small NJ suburb outside of Manhattan – a city she dearly loves. She shares her life with her husband, a teenaged son—who will just not stop growing—and two exceedingly spoiled cats. Her spare time is spent watching way too much sports programming, going to the movies and for long walks/runs in the park, reading her book club’s current selection, and thinking about superheroes.

Nothing makes her happier than knowing she made a reader laugh or smile or cry. It’s the purpose of sharing her work with people. She loves hearing from fans and fellow writers, and is always available for speaking engagements, visits and workshops.
