Michele Ulriksen was born in 1970 in Newport Beach, California and raised in Orange County. While navigating (badly) through a sea of teen angst she was shipped off to reform school, an experience that inspired her first book, Reform at Victory (finished in 2007.)
As an adult she moved to the Bay Area to study Film and Creative Writing at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. After five memorable years in the Bay Area, she headed north to Oregon where she accepted a writing/editing position with Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB.)
After four rewarding years working in public radio, she resigned to accomplish some personal goals: finish her book and return to school. She earned an associate’s degree and is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in English with emphasis in creative writing, film and women's studies.
Her writing has appeared in World Kid Magazine, Freethought Today, Gazette Times, OPB Member Guide, Willamette Freethinker, Rational Atheist, The Peaceworker, International Library of Poetry, Creative Highway, and The Commuter, where she also served as a Copy Editor in community college.
