Michel Prince, her new release, and a chance at a butterfly necklace!

Michel Prince is an author who graduated with a bachelor degree in History and Political Science.  Michel writes young adult and adult paranormal romance as well as contemporary romance.

With characters yelling "It's my turn damn it!!!" She tries to explain to them that alas, she can only type a hundred and twenty words a minute and they will have wait their turn.  She knows eventually they find their way out of her head and to her fingertips and she looks forward to sharing them with you.

When Michel can suppress the voices in her head she can be found at a scouting event or cheering for her son in a variety of sports.  She would like to thank her family for always being in her corner and especially her husband for supporting her every dream and never letting her give up.

Michel is a member of RWA Pro and Midwest Fiction Writers.  She lives in the Twin Cities with her husband, son, cat and new puppy. 


In the annals of dysfunctional families, the Chisholm’s are working their way to the top. Drug abuse, an unwed mother with multiple fathers, and the questionable cash flow for the 'pretty one'.   All this from a seemingly normal, two parent middle class family. But were the choices truly made of their free will?

            Bad choices are a Chisholm family trait, one that confounds the youngest child, Ellie, who's trying to separate herself by making smart decisions. And falling for Oscar Jeffreys, the hottest guy at school, would be number one on the list of  Chisholm family disasters.  Yet the crazy part is it’s not a one sided attraction.  Somehow Ellie has caught Oscar Jeffreys’ eye.   Sure she could see the barriers between them.  Race, age, popularity.  They were at opposite ends of the spectrum.  But a demon set to destroy her family? She can't see that.  

            Oscar provides security and acceptance Ellie never imagined she deserved.  As the passion of first love grows, Ellie honestly believes she has a chance to beat the odds and live a happy, normal life. Then her world collapses around her. With the help of a guardian angel, Ellie learns of a world that has unknowingly surrounded her for years.  And she'll have to find strength buried deep inside to save not only her future, but flush out and stop the demon in her midst.

            And Ellie will have to learn that sometimes the hardest lesson about growing up is accepting that you're worth more. 

Thanks, Michel for stopping by! Today she's talking about the top 3 things on her bucket/life list, her best vacation ever, and several other fun things. Plus a cool giveaway!

Michel will be awarding a butterfly gift basket to one randomly drawn commenter and a butterfly necklace to a second randomly drawn commenter.

Top 3 things on my bucket/life list:

1. Stay at least a week in Bora Bora at the Softel in a hut over the ocean.

2. See Europe…at least the Western countries if not a few of the Eastern. 
3. Get at least one of my novels turned into a movie.

As for best vacation ever that I’ve taken--it would have to be Florida with my husband and son.  We hit Coco Beach, Cape Canaveral and Universal Studios as well as one evening at Medieval Times during what was deemed “mom’s geek day.”


Interview Questions:
1. At any given time do you work on only one story at a time and maybe plot out the next one or are there many ideas racing around your head?
I have many stories running around my head and laptop at varying stages of completion.  There have been only two books that I worked straight through from start to finish; Chrysalis and The Guardian’s Heart.  Otherwise I usually keep between 2-5 stories up so I can switch with my muse.

2. Is there a genre you haven't written in but would like to? Or wish you could write in? 
I wish I could do espionage or spy novels.  I’m not versed enough it the alphabet agencies, weapons and security systems.

3. Do you add an element of romantic suspense in your stories?
If so, how difficult is it to maintain the integrity of the mystery?  In Chrysalis there’s more of a romantic strain than suspense.  In other books there is a suspense element, but I think we all question ourselves in our own relationships so the story wouldn’t have much integrity if there wasn’t that mystery of will it or wont it happen.

4. Say you have unlimited funds: What kind of writing office/cottage would you create for yourself? 
I’ve seen a few that have really gotten my fingers all tingly at the thought.  One of my favorite ones was like a tree house or playhouse separate from the home with two levels of books, because there has to be a library for down times.  I’d need a comfy chair with good lighting, wifi and maybe a fireplace.  Basically a desk somewhere but I’d need to have music pumped in for editing days.

5. If you could turn your novel into a TV show, which novel or series would you do? Where would it be set? Network TV (ABC, NBC, CBS), Cable (AMC, BBC, Lifetime) or Premium Cable (HBO, Showtime, Starz)?
Most people say that Chrysalis would be a great movie…but if I was going to do a series it would have to be The Frozen because as that story grows in future novels there are great twists coming up in that series.  I’d say Showtime, maybe HBO with demon sex it’d need to be on one of those two.

6. Finally, tell us about your latest release!
The latest would be book two of the Chrysalis Series called The Beam.  In the first book we meet Ellie who learns her family’s bad choices were influenced by a demon set out to destroy them.  As she harnessed her powers to destroy them she also learned that she was worth more than she ever thought. 

Now in book two her boyfriend has asked her to marry him as she enters her senior year of high school.  Although she has learned to destroy demons she now has to pull her family back and separate them from a demon that has completely infiltrated her home.  All the while fighting with growing up as suddenly people that didn’t seem to notice her for the first 17 years of her life suddenly decide she’s still a child and needs to be corralled. 

Ellie is the only one who knows about the demons and who can save her family.  With them blocking her at every turn she has to walk the line of being an adult and child as she desperately searches for the strength to save her family and finally find the peace she needs.
