Amazing news: Fox Spirit Books are publishing my trilogy of short stories collections this summer and early fall!! I’m so proud that such a caring team is helping me bring my stories to life…and look at the unbelievable Girls & Aliens cover for by Daniele Serra.
Yeah, I know. Pretty and creepy and perfect for my darkness. I’ve been a fan of Dani’s work for years, so to have him actually make covers for my collections is quite fantastic! He can be found here.
So, about Girls & Aliens: 5 Girls, 5 Aliens. Five Tales of courage and outer space. In this collection by Anne Michaud the lesson is clear, never underestimate the power and resolve of ordinary women in extraordinary circumstances.
My Girls are strong, unapologetic, and clearly no wall-flowers. They fight and won’t back down against robots, invaders, snakes, aliens, and fear of becoming something they’re not. They came to me through dreams, memories, and bits of scary imaginings.
And you can meet them August 14th 2019:)

This project started as a young adult thriller two years ago, after a vivid nightmare stayed with me for months. So I drafted the story but realized something was missing: ghosts! Then, genres switched until it felt just right in my author’s heart, so here I present Whispered Echoes, the first book of an urban fantasy series coming out April 24th, 2015!!
After years of being haunted by her sister’s ghost, Alyx must choose between saving her friends or keeping the only family she loves.
Alyx lost everything in the fire, her family, her home, her freedom, but she discovered something, too: something lurking in the darkness. To protect her from harm, the ghost of her dead sister haunts the walls of the mental institution holding Alyx captive for the last 9 years. But even she can’t help when patients suddenly act possessed and turn against Alyx, who must find the strength and knowledge to rid them of evil and save their lives.
After a narrow escape from the institution, Transcend welcomes Alyx in with opened arms since she’s the daughter of a former star agent; her mother. They hope to teach her ghost seer abilities to help them keep the leaders of the world in check and give her a normal life. With her friends and newly acquired knowledge, Alyx prepares to battle against evil, but when facing her greatest enemy yet, everything she knows might not be enough to save the people she loves. No matter what her choices, the consequences will be paid in blood – maybe her own.
