Michele is a teacher, writer and producer based in Sydney. Her written work has been published in the Sydney Morning Herald, Daily Life, Meanjin and Overland, and she has also produced radio stories for FBi’s “All the Best” program.
Michele enjoys writing both fiction and non-fiction and often writes about music, culture and the arts, politics and society and the human experience. She is currently working as a high school Special Education teacher.
Michele will be working on a book about:
A fractured family trying to negotiate the settling of a problematic will in a way that will not further divide their already tenuous connections.
The work will deal with how some families must grapple with the dysfunction of their past in order to inform their future. It will draw on the people and places of Western Sydney that Michele grew up with, and to that end capture a sense of isolation of place, and misunderstood complexity in people (in particular, trying to unpack the narrative of the ‘demonised bogan’).
