Michelle Celmer was born and raised in Metro-Detroit. In her youth, her dream was to become a cosmetologist but, after three months in beauty school, she decided she was wrong. She went on to become a wife, mother and master of crafting. After her third child, she decided to try writing. After trying to write YA fiction, she found category romance at her local used bookstore and knew that this was the niche for her. After countless rejections, Michelle finally sold her to Silhouette Desire. Since then she has published over 25 books and has no intention of stopping.
She lives in southeastern Michigan with her husband, three children, two dogs, and two cats.
