Michelle Hauck lives in the bustling metropolis of Northern Indiana with her husband and two dogs, while trying to find the humor in being an empty nester. She works with Exceptional Learners by day and writes fantasy whenever she has a moment. Her epic fantasy trilogy Birth of Saints (Grudging, Faithful, Steadfast) was published with Harper Voyager Impulse. To give back to the writer community, she hosts Query Kombat, Sun vs Snow, Picture Book Party and other writer contests as well as mentoring in Pitchwars for six years. Most days you can find her hanging out on twitter (@Michelle4Laughs) and procrastinating. Find her website at MichelleHauckWrites.com
