ABOUT ME

Urban Reviews listed Michelle Janine Robinson's first novel, Color Me Grey (June 2010), as one of the best reviewed books for 2010.  Proving herself an artful author and not one to be pigeon-holed to a particular genre, Michelle's second book, More Than Meets The Eye (June 2011), crafts a bold and unique read for those craving something a bit different, as she enters the paranormal realm.  In 2012, Michelle offered a unique perspective on mental illness in her book Serial Typical. In 2013 she introduced a world in which people of color are once again subject to ownership as slaves, in Strange Fruit.  In 2014 her novel, On The Other Side, offered the story of one woman's escape from the Twin Towers on 9/11 and her brilliant idea to escape her abusive husband as well, by faking her own demise in the Towers.

Michelle's short story contribution, The Quiet Room, was a featured story in the New York Times bestseller Succulent: Chocolate Flava II.  She has contributed to several other anthologies, including Zane's Busy Bodies: Chocolate Flava 4, Caramel Flava, Honey Flava, Purple Panties and Tasting Him.  In 2009 Tasting Him won the IPPY (Independent Publisher) Award for erotica.

In 2011 Michelle was voted Writer's POV Magazine's Annual Winter Writing Contest Winner of the Year. Also in 2011, she was voted a National Black Book Festival finalist for Best New Author of the Year. Michelle is a native New Yorker and the proud mother of identical twins.
