Michelle Donice was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. She earned her undergraduate degree from Bethune-Cookman College in Daytona Beach, Florida, received a master’s degree from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and a Ph.D. from The University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. Michelle works on a small campus in Central Florida where she divides her time between motivating youth and writing fiction.
Michelle credits her mother, three aunts and godmother for teaching her to be emotionally strong, self-reliant and creative, and to always seek God first.
Teaching is Michelle’s dream job, and she loves discussing literature and teaching students how to express themselves through writing.
Michelle wrote The Other Side of Throught after hearing so many women talk about marital issues, but it took a few years for her to put pen to paper. Her most difficult challenge in writing the book was staying true to her characters’ stories, and not succumbing to the pressure of censoring things based on what people would say or think. Michelle stayed true to the story her characters wanted her to tell, and she now looks forward to talking about these issues with her readers and supporters.
