GOLD Medal WINNER in the 2014 READERS' FAVORITE INTERNATIONAL AWARDS

Readers' Favorite gave CACHE a PREDATOR five-stars. "I highly recommend this book to any readers who are looking for a new, excellent crime novel that is heartrending and thought-provoking."
Cache a Predator is a geocaching thriller about a father's love, justice, and the unhinged game of hide-the-cache.
Officer Brett Reed will do anything to gain custody of his five-year-old daughter, Quinn. But when a judge grants Brett's drug-addicted ex-wife custody and slaps him with a protective order for losing his temper, he fears for Quinn's safety. Who will protect her now?
When Quinn is found abandoned on the streets, the child is placed in a temporary foster home until Child Protective Services can complete an assessment. It should only take a few days.
But a lot can happen in a few days.
Especially when there's a deranged psychopath on the loose, someone who's attacking pedophiles, someone who wants to protect children like Quinn, and someone who's planting body parts in geocaching sites.
Michelle is a fulltime employee of God's kingdom, writing and encouraging writers every day. She's a sucker for emotional stories, her sensitive side fueling the passion for her character's plights, often giving her the ability to show readers the "other" side of the story.
She grew up in the burbs of Detroit with five brothers. No sisters. Each time her mom brought the boy bundle home Michelle cried, certain her mom liked boys better than girls. But when her brothers pitched in with the cooking, cleaning, and babysitting—without drama, Michelle discovered having brothers wasn't so bad. They even taught her how to take direct criticism without flinching, which might come in handy with book reviews.
Michelle is living her dream—writing every day and thanking God for the stories He puts in her path. When Michelle isn't writing she's winning ugly on the pickle ball court. She's known as "Queen of the Rim Shots." No joke. It's ugly.
Her debut novel, Cache a Predator is a geocaching mystery and an Amazon bestseller in the thriller/crime category.
