Changing Fate Release Party!

May 8, 2014

I'm so happy for my friend Michelle, whose book Changing Fate releases today! She wrote this book after meeting a girl with cystic fibrosis, and she's donating half of all proceeds from the book to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Here's more about Michelle and her book, which you can get now in ebook or paperback!

All Kate wants is to live. Battling cystic fibrosis is hard enough, dying from it is even harder. When her mom moves them closer to the hospital in the middle of her senior year, Kate’s determined to isolate herself—saving everyone the trouble of befriending a dying girl. It’s a difficult task when cheerful optimist Giana insists on being Kate’s friend.

Kate’s resolve falters even more when curly-haired Kyler captivates her with his sweet melodies. As her emotional walls collapse, Kate realizes the people she’s been pushing away may be the ones giving her a reason to live. But it might be too late.

Check out the book trailer here!

Fun Facts about Michelle:
5.      I’ve been married for 10 years. I met my hubby country dancing. He was good, I was bad, he could lead, I could follow…it was a great mix. He’s tall with light hair, blue eyes, and a smoldering smile. No, you can’t have him. He’s mine forever!!!

6.      I’m number 7 of 10 kids. Youngest girl. Lightest hair. Sparkly teeth…wait. That’s someone else. Dang.
