Michele M. Graf is an eclectic writer and editor of poetry, novels, screen-plays, essays, and other nonfiction. Heart, Soul, and Rough Edges, a coffee table book of poetry, prose, and photos to capture the decade-long, 100,000-mile journey through the US and Canada that she and her husband lived, is coming together. She creates art on her computer and practices Tai Chi when she remembers to breathe.
Michele's been published online and in print and is Poetry Editor for the award-winning Apollo's Lyre e-zine (http://apollos-lyre.tripod.com). Michele is Leader of the Mod Squad—the chat moderators, transcript takers, and other behind-the-scene support folks—for the annual Muse Online Writers Conference. She's active in the Willamette Writers, Oregon Poetry Association (OPA), the Lane Literary Guild, and two poetry critique groups. She now lives in Oregon with her husband of a thousand years, and an adopted Standard Poodle, the Alpha Female of the pack.
