Check out the latest interview I did with The Daily Bookworm!
Check out this fun new interview I did and hear me talk about three of the songs I like:
Sway by Dean Martin – Get Cauldrons and Confessions to see why this has been playing in my head lately while I work.
Break On Through by The Doors – For me this is more of an existential song about breaking through the mental barriers and road blocks we put in our way. So for my writing, songs like this can be a useful emotional tool for when a character needs to get psyched up to conquer something in their way.
No Rain by Blindmelon – Ah, I love the girl in the bee costume in the video expressing her individuality. Plus, this kind of music reminds me of what it’s like to be an angsty teenager.

When it came time to scout locations for a contemporary romance—the Warlocks MacGregors series. I was adamant that I wanted somewhere that small town America was represented. Wisconsin was the perfect place. But it was a close call between the cheese state and a location in the south.
Having grown up in the heartland myself I knew how connected people can be to the land.
And then of course there’s my fondness for all things cheese, which brings me to fun facts about Malina, who happens to be the heroine in “Cauldrons and Confessions” the next MacGregor’s book, coming soon.
One of Malina’s gifts is that she is able to materialize objects from their pictures. Enter the MacGregor males, I was going to say men, but I’ll let you decide for yourself. So, boys being boys, her brothers and cousins stole a bunch of billboards so she could materialize giant pizzas for them. Rory also took a billboard with a picture of a 6-foot boxer puppy on it, and is currently pestering Malina to make him a friend.
Oh well, it’s back to writing. Wish me luck. And if you haven’t read the series, “Love Potions” book 1 is reduced to 99 cents for a limited time.
Refugee of the Apocalypse: Being an extra on ‘Z Nation’
December 2016 Photos and Article by Michelle M. Pillow
It is no secret to my readers that one of my lifelong dreams is to be a zombie extra in a horror film. It’s been featured on my author bio for years in hopes that the Universe would take note and make the dream come true. I’m ready, too. I’ve been practicing each morning when I’m pre-coffee, groaning incoherent words, and stumbling around on stiff legs. All that’s missing is the makeup artist…

Michelle Pillow’s New Novel Reflects that Gothic Romance Is Alive and Well
New critique of the novel ‘Forget Me Not’ by Michelle M. Pillow
“As a scholar of the classic Gothic novel of the nineteenth century, from time to time I like to read twenty-first century Gothic novels to see how well the seeds that Mrs. Radcliffe planted are flourishing. I’m happy to report that authors like Michelle Pillow are keeping the Gothic tradition alive and well by utilizing standard Gothic plot devices but making them their own as the Gothic evolves into something more spiritual and less terrifying than its originators may have first imagined.” — Read the entire critique here!
