I’m Rising” is the second of three books planned in my “Rising” series. It is an inspiring poetry collection written to ignite a spark and remind us that facing and conquering our emotional pain builds inner strength and resilience.  And that we must own our power. It will be released for broad distribution on September 3, 2019.

I’m Rising is filled with poems for women and men urging us to stretch and grow to our fullest potential. The empowering prose offers encouraging words with a call to action to harness our self-confidence to achieve the goals we were destined to shatter. Whether in search of a connection, shared experiences, healing thoughts or encouragement, this self-help collection offers ready salves to our daily life experiences. I’m Rising is organized into three chapters entitled Evolving, Resilience, and Rising to aid in finding those special words meant for us.

While many of the pieces were written over time, some were inspired by the issues highlighted as the MeToo movement was taking shape. Michelle shares her own personal and professional me too struggles in hopes that they help others feel less alone and perhaps empowered to move forward. Her desire is that all will find renewed motivation in words that encourage them to continue to build their resilience into a formidable and unbridled power. With poems like I’m Rising and I Am The Revolt, readers are sure to come away feeling uplifted and free to make a verse or two into their own personal mantra.



Poetry about life that celebrates love, offers comfort in heartbreak and inspiration to heal, move forward and try love again.

In this emotional thriller of contemporary prose and poetic reflections, you will discover the many sides to love, from unrestrained joy of the first flutter of a new romance, to the pain of heartbreak, and the journey to healing and finding the inspiration to try at love again.

With poems as short as the four lines of Sparks, to longer and more thought-provoking verse such as Wasted, there is something for everyone to connect to as their own.

And whether you are picking it up in a snatched moment during a busy day or settling down for an evening of reading with a relaxing glass of wine, When Love Rises offers something that will touch the soul of any reader.
