Hi Michelle thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
Hi, thanks for having me! I’m a writer who lives in Vancouver, BC, with my partner Elizabeth and our two black cats. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and have been fascinated with storytelling for as long as I can remember. The Better to Kiss You With is a paranormal romance about Deanna, the moderator of an online werewolf role playing game, who falls for the mysterious woman living above her.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I take a lot of inspiration from the world around me! I’m always jotting down notes about cool things I see, or an interesting turn of phrase, or someone on my bus who looks like they’d make an interesting character.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I think when I autographed a copy of The Better to Kiss You With for my parents. Being a published author felt like such an unreachable dream that I’d never thought or fantasized about signing a book I wrote for my parents, so actually getting to do so felt unreal, in the best way!
Do your characters become like real people to you?
I don’t know if I’d say they become like real people… but they certainly take on a mind of their own! Often they’ll go off in ways I don’t expect when I’ve started writing, but at that point all you can do is cross your fingers and go along with it.
If you weren’t a writer, what else would you like to have done?
If I wasn’t a writer I think I would be an English teacher. I have so much love for books and the written word, and was lucky enough to always have amazing English teachers who had the same appreciation for literature that my love of reading was always validated. I would love to be able to inspire and encourage young people to read in the same way that I was encouraged to.
What do you want your tombstone to say?
Here lies Michelle. At least, we hope.
Now let's check out Michelle Osgood's The Better to Kiss You With....
