I am Michele M. Reynolds author of Trail Swap, Love's Autograph, Off-Trail, & Tunnel W. The title
Writer & Wilderness Girl Under It All comes from my love of writing and my roots of working and living in the woods for some years after college. Frequently, I lean towards a life of simplicity, and dream of living back in a tent contstructed of pine tree uprights, ridge poles, side-rails, rafters, and a thick yellow tarp.

Since age 5 I knew I wanted to be a writer, and I told everyone I knew that is what I wanted to do. I studied journalism in school, and then went another route when I realized being an author was not in the cards for a solid career path. Now I live in New England and have a day-career by day. Still the creative bug is at work all day and night to create more characters and stories.

I currently live in New England with my family of 5 people + 4 cats + 1 Dog. I have a roof over my head (not a tarp), electricity (not kerosene) and still I firmly believe I am a Writer & Wilderness Girl Under It All.

I hope you enjoy the blog I plan to write about the outdoors, writing, parenting, life in general, and randomness.
