About Michelle Dennis
Michelle Dennis lives in Perth, Western Australia; she has always loved reading and in the past few years this love has expanded into creating her own written words and worlds.
Michelle has a love of medieval and fantasy creatures, and her first book, Wolfbaene, revolves around this theme and brings the world of knights, castles and dragons to children around the world.
Michelle is a devoted wife and mother, and fits her writing schedule in around her busy lifestyle. Michelle shares her home with a very mature Dachshund named Phoebe Rose, and a whole bunch of cats who are under the impression they are the owners of Michelle's home.
She is currently working on a sequel to Wolfbaene, and when she's not in the world of dragons and other mythical beings, she can be found listening attentively to the other characters in her head, who are shouting for her attention.

1. Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
I can never fit enough into one day and I love challenging myself; both physically and spiritually. I'm a writer, a mother, wife and grandma, so every minute of my day is special. I love to travel, watching the sunrise and sunset, and have a wondrous interest in dragons and fairytales. I don't ever want to grow up!
2. What kind of books do you bring with you when you go on holiday?
Anything that will capture my heart and soul. Some of my favourite authors are Rebecca Raisin, D.S Williams, Nora Roberts and Matthew Reilly.
3. If you could spend a sunny day anywhere how would your perfect day look like?
I'd be soaking up the Balinese sunshine, poolside, with a cocktail and a good book.
4. Could you tell us about your hobbies (when you are not writing or reading)?
I've recently started Pilates! At, um, 40-something, this was one challenge I set myself up for and I'm loving it. I have officially added “Gym Junkie” to my list of hobbies. I also make soy candles and dabble in aromatherapy for nourishing my soul.
5. Where do you find the inspiration for your stories?
Real life; either my own experiences or those of others. Even in a young adult fantasy with talking dragons, there needs to be believable stuff for the reader to connect to.
6. If you could be any leading character from a bestselling book, who would you be and why?
Wendy from Peter Pan, of course! Who wouldn't want to hang out with the boy who never grows up and his fairy, Tinkerbell?
7. What's your favorite reading spot?
My writing room, on a comfy reading chair beside the window.
8. What is your favorite holiday destination and what do you like so much about it?
Bali, Indonesia. It's sunny, close to home (Perth W.A) and the Balinese are simply beautiful people!
9. Do you have any advice for authors who would like to write a sunny story?
Travel, read, fall in love and repeat.
10. What can we expect from you in the future?
Book II of my Infinity series ~ Absolution ~ is set for release in August. It's a gritty, romantic, page-turner ~ perfect for a holiday in the sun!
By Michelle Dennis
Absolution – Book II of the Infinity Series, is a gritty and confronting telling of a young man’s battle with depression, loss, love and grief.
Looking back over the last six years, two major tragedies occurred in my life; both centred around men’s mental health and the lack of awareness on such a poignant issue. With the sales of this book, I hope to raise awareness of some concerns facing men, help reduce the stigma associated with mental health and use proceeds to help support to Beyondblue.
