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.”

Steinert High Craft Show

I had the pleasure of attending my old High School today!  I signed up to be a vendor at the Annual PTA Craft Show.  I had such a great time!  I got to see some familiar faces, a couple of my old neighbors and I met many incredible new people.  I can’t express how grateful I was for all of the support I got today.  It is heartwarming to see and hear how people are enjoying my work and are truly happy for my successes.  All I can say is thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I hope that all of you who bought books enjoy them!  Leave me a review on, or to let me know what you think!  I am absolutely looking forward to being at the craft show next year!  If you are local, I’ll post a reminder up here on this webpage so that you can come out to see me!

Oh, and just a quick update on Tax Cut…I’m about two weeks away from delivering it to the editor.  Then I suspect it will be six weeks at the editor, then a couple more weeks for a final proofread and formatting….so figure about 8 weeks give or take until it’s release!  While it’s at the editor, I’ll be working on my next children’s book, thought I haven’t decided which one.  I have a few ideas…L is for Lake, C is for Caribbean, S is for Snow, an anti-bullying book I’m working on, or my next series with the characters of Guy and Bub.  Decisions, decisions.  Too many ideas, too little time!

Take care and xo!
