Municipal Clerk Rediscovers Her Passion For Writing

I’m excited to be featured on the front page of the Home News Tribune and Courier News today!

When Michele Lynn Seigfried entered the College of New Jersey, she didn’t have a major. She took an array of classes — art, television, acting, math, science, history, public speaking, stage building, world religions, and women’s studies — but nothing seemed to fit.

Then she took a creative writing class.

“My teacher singled me out to read my assignment about siblings out loud,” the New Jersey native said. “It told the tale of how I would threaten my little brother with flushing his chameleons down the toilet or sucking him up in the vacuum when he had gotten on my nerves. After all, what’s a big sister for? My classmates chuckled at my sense of humor.”

Readers’ Favorite Awards

readers favorite award certificateI’m thrilled to say that Red Tape made it into the top five of the Fiction-Mystery-Sleuth category in the Readers’ Favorite 2013 Book Awards Contest. Not bad for my first novel! Now I’m deciding about going to the awards ceremony in Miami in November. Airfare is a little pricey in November with Thanksgiving coming up, but I know it would be a great experience.  Decisions, decisions. And congrats to all the winners!

I also want to take a moment to thank the more than 32,700 readers who downloaded Red Tape this past month.  I greatly appreciate your support and I truly hope you enjoy the book! Leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads when you’re through and let me know what you liked and what you didn’t.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me through this website!

Be on the lookout for Red Tape’s sequel, Tax Cut coming in early 2014.  I hope you are all having a fun and safe Labor Day!
