Michelle Rowen pens fantastical romance novels from her "condo o' love" in Southern Ontario, watched over by a pair of friendly cats named for two of her favourite characters from supernatural TV shows. She has been on the Waldenbooks bestseller list as well as winning a HOLT Medallion for her first book.
She doesn't think it's the least bit strange for her fictional characters to keep her up at night with various complaints and plot demands. To paraphrase Jane Austen, Michelle's books are about characters who will have, after a bit (or a lot!) of trouble, all that they desire - or who they desire.
