Lisa Michelle is an award-winning writer and filmmaker. Recently, Michelle’s debut thriller Calaveras became an Amazon bestseller. The former rodeo cowgirl and mother of two makes her home in the backwoods of the Sierra Nevada where she finds an abundance of gruesome occurrences to draw from. Mountain Misery, a mostly true collection of fast-paced stories, brings meaning to the struggles of rural life and love that will leave readers somewhere between laughing and crying and at times both. Michelle writes from experience about the people and places she knows, giving her characters an undeniable authenticity and grit. Her work appears in RANGE, Sporting Classics, Californian, Western Horseman, and others.
