Michelle Smart is a Publishers Weekly bestselling author with a slight-to-severe coffee addiction. A book worm since birth, Michelle can usually be found hiding behind a paperback, or if it's an author she really loves, a hardback. With varied reading tastes, her favourite authors include Stephen King, Philippa Gregory, Hilary Mantel, Khaled Hosseini, Karin Slaughter, Linwood Barclay, Marion Keyes, CJ Sansom and Jilly Cooper. She considers herself to have the best job in the world.

Michelle lives in rural Northamptonshire in England with her husband, two young Smarties and a gorgeous Cockapoo. When not reading or pretending to do the housework she loves nothing more than creating worlds of her own. Preferably with lots of coffee on tap.
