About Me

My name is Michelle Basson.
I live in Cape Town, South Africa and I have a passion for writing. 
I am a qualified teacher and I'm currently tutoring.

5 Random Facts about me:
1. I'm a know-it-all - I know a little about a lot of things.
2. I'm a cat-person
3. I'm a perfectionist
4. I touched Danny O'Donaghue's hand at a concert! (The Script's frontman :)
5. I make a mean stir-fry - my own version

I mainly enjoy writing YA and/or fantasy and also love reading it. Harry Potter's the series that started it all. I loved the Hunger Games, The Inheritance Cycle, The Witch's Boy and The Book Thief, to name a few...

"The Gypsy's Daughter" is my first attempt and I've been chipping away at it since my grade 11 year.
