Meet the Author

Michelle Isenhoff writes adventures for kids of all ages. Sometimes they take place in the past, such as her popular Civil War-era Divided Decade Trilogy and The Color of Freedom. Other times they involve fantastical plots or new worlds, as in The Quill Pen and Song of the Mountain. More recently, Michelle had a blast writing the first book in her humorous, high-action Taylor Davis series.

Michelle will never market profanity or controversy to her young audience. Instead, she relies on fun, solid story-telling. She prefers stories with some depth to them, and especially enjoys beautifully crafted language and a hero who grows and learns and changes. Michelle often receives emails from grown-ups (as old as 79) who encourage her to keep writing for “us kids!”

This story portrays how life might change after a disaster and we no longer have technology. It shows how humans can adapt and find real personal relationships instead of cyber relationships. It holds the readers attention and is suitable for all ages.

Song of the Morning: ABSOLUTE MUST READ!!!! FANTASTIC WRITING!!!! BRILLIANT STORY!!!! Song of the Morning is set in a mythical land that evokes ancient China. Song Wei is embarrassed by what he considers an ill-fitting name, which means “Great One.” He is bullied by the other boys, forced by his Grandfather to listen to ancient tales, and prevented from learning what he really wants to know. Why he is an orphan, and what befell the community twelve years ago when he was born? His only friend, Karina is a gentle girl, who is also an outcast due facial scars. The mystery of his past is revealed to be an ancient terror  that threatens not only the people he loves, but all of humanity. Only by living up to his name can Song save everyone.   This story was spot on in every way. The writing is flawless. The characters are richly detailed and endearing. The pace is perfect. The plot is engaging. This is a book that shows the true value of an independent author. This book has all the quality of a book published in the mainstream and more. A great middle-grade read for those who like fantasy, but I enjoyed it as much as anything I’ve read in a long time.
