Michele R. Wagner told Something about the Author: "I have always been more comfortable reading than writing. While studying for my English degree, I chose a literature emphasis over writing. Writing books to educate children has been a step toward finally crossing that line and trying something different. I have enjoyed my forays into the world of writing and hope that as my confidence in my writing grows, so will my collection of work."
