My name is Michelle Kubitz.  I’ve identified as a writer from the time I could hold a pen in hand and coveted blank notebooks (I grew up in a family that seemed to write everything on the backs of envelopes …).  My career as a writer has led me around the upper Midwest as a reporter at the West Central Tribune in Willmar, Minn.; the Herald Times Reporter in Manitowoc, Wis.; and my final stop was working a newspaper in Northfield, Minn., called the Northfield News.  After leaving the newspaper world, I started writing business proposals for various companies.  I am a member of Sisters in Crime and the Mystery Writers of America (and MWA Midwest, where I am also a former board member).  I am a previous recipient of the Hugh Holton Award from MWA Midwest recognizing promising new writers (2015).  My novel “Irreversible” (currently querying) was the first runner-up for 2017 Killer Nashville’s Claymore Award.

I am married and am the mother of two young children (+ two adorable kittens).  The kittens’ predecessor, my beloved cat, Digger (also known as my Long Term Relationship), exited this universe after 18 wonderful years of making me his human.  I write fiction – typically mysteries that sometimes have a paranormal bent to them.  There are times that I flirt with poetry, but it’s usually overly earnest and ridiculous in its execution.

Thanks for spending time with me on this blog.  Your presence is greatly appreciated.
