About Michelle Leonard
MICHELLE LEONARD was born a math and science nerd. After spending ten years working with an engineering dream team developing commercial blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs), she escaped the world of seventy-hour workweeks. Nowadays, when she’s not tinkering on her teleporter for transporting her talented daughters to their important gigs and lessons, she’s turning wacky thoughts into stories for young readers. Michelle lives with her science-savvy husband, three inspiring daughters, and a border collie who hates numbers. Her young adult sci-fi short story IN A WHOLE NEW LIGHT will be published in the BRAVE NEW GIRLS ANTHOLOGY: STORIES OF GIRLS WHO SCIENCE AND SCHEME releasing August 2017. She’s a member of SCBWI Carolinas. You can also find her on Twitter at @MGYABookJunkie and she blogs about books and writing at http://thewingedpen.com.
