Michelle Davidson Argyle

Brief Bio:
Michelle Davidson Argyle currently resides in the Rocky Mountains with her daughter and actor-husband who keeps lots of swords around the house. Everyone thinks this is a fabulous arrangement, and urges him to acquire more on a regular basis. Michelle happily writes novels as part of her stay-at-home-mom-and-artist career. Her short story, Thread, will appear in the Stories for Sendai anthology. Her first novel, Monarch, is set for release September of 2011 by Rhemalda Publishing. You can find out more about her on her author site: http://michelledavidsonargyle.com and sign up to her mailing list here. She can also be found on Twitter, FacebookGoodreads and various Blogger sites. She welcomes emails at ladyglamis (at) gmail (dot) com.

What genres do you write?
I write contemporary, fantasy, and literary fiction. My literary fiction is mostly short stories, and my fantasy so far has been three fairy-tale themed novellas. My adult thriller, Monarch, is contemporary, while my novel which will be published after that is categorized as young adult/new adult contemporary. I plan to keep dabbling in different genres because my main focus is stories, not genres.

What are you currently writing? Sum it up in 10 words or less.
What happens before the classic tale, Sleeping Beauty.

What do you do when you're not writing?
Taking care of my daughter or husband, cleaning, eating, or spending time in Photoshop or outside.

What is your ultimate goal as a writer?
To keep writing stories and sharing them, no matter how they're published.

How close are you to achieving this goal?
I'm attaining it as we speak, so yay!

What is the single most important piece of advice you can give a fellow writer?
Read a lot and write a lot and never, ever give up.
