Joleen Michellie was born and raised in California. She started writing at a young age, but began writing Children's Books as a single mom of two in Orange County CA. She moved to Northern Idaho in 2012, where she met her husband. She resides there still with her family today in a rural community near the woods. Many of her books were directly inspired by her young children at the time, while other inspiration stems from her own childhood.
In 2006, she wrote the My Time books:
My Nap Time, My Potty Time & My Car Time.
By 2007 Joleen had written:
A Long Winter, though it wouldn’t be illustrated or published until 2014.
In 2010 she wrote:
‘T’was the Night of First Christmas, again, this wasn’t illustrated or published until 2014.
Joleen went on to write the Plain Jane series:
Plain Jane and the Missing Python and Plain Jane and the Summer Vacation, as well as, A Great Story to be Told.
Outside of the picture book genera, Joleen has started on a short novel. She also wrote and illustrated a short self help book for women, Love Advice from a Flower. She dabbles in greeting card sayings and short poems, mostly just for friends and family. While she enjoys all types of writing, her passion remains with writing for children. Anyone who knows Joleen will tell you that she is a genuine person whose charisma is infectious. Her personality, and values shine through in her creative, stylistic, approach that she weaves into each of her stories. Look for her up-coming events and new books to be released.
