My name is Michaele Stoughton. I'm a YA writer, living in upstate New York with my husband of 24 years, and my 2 beautiful daughters. I love animals. We have bunches of them: 3 cats, 3 dogs, 2 chinchillas, 1 bunny, and a whole bunch of fish -fresh and saltwater. You may not believe it, but our zoo is actually getting smaller. We used to have: frogs, turtles, geckos, snakes, rats, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, parakeets, hissing cockroaches, stick bugs, and button quail. Just to name a few.
When I'm not cleaning up after the family or the pets, you'll find me reading, writing, or watching Supernatural -all while drinking coffee and checking facebook or Twitter. Music is also a big part of my life, although I'm not the talented one, it's my 17-year-old daughter.
