I love sushi and hate Mexican food. I have a small group of friends that I love like my sisters, and I have a HUGE family. I have a cousin almost everywhere I go. I love anyone and anything that makes me laugh.I would rather go to the dentist than the grocery store. I've been married for a hundred years or something like that, and I have lied about my age for so long, I have to stop and think if I'm filling out important paperwork. I hate people who try to copy me, and I love being different and having friends who are nothing like me and just alike at the same time. My thing is my super long blonde hair. I'm proud of being a smart girl, and I like it when girls care more about looking smart than skank. My mama is my number one fan. I'm a spiritual person, but not religious. I cry when I have to leave the beach. My son is a miracle to me, and he lets me see the world through innocent eyes again. I'd rather have a cd than flowers. I put a lot of myself in my books, and yes, some things that happen are from real life. You'll just have to guess which ones. Keeping people guessing is one of the things I do best.

Michelle Haley, author of Eden, took some time out to answer some questions for WAB. Read on to find out a little more about Michelle, Eden, and what comes next. Keep going until the end and you'll find a giveaway!
I've written as far back as I can remember. I finished business school, but I always wanted to write as a career. I quit my desk job to stay home with my baby boy, and I wrote during his naps and after his bedtime. I decided to self-publish after two years of trying the publishing house road off and on. I had a few agents and publishers interested, but nothing ever came to fruition. Ultimately, the decision came down to me just wanting people to read my book and enjoy it.
Self-publishing has become a much more respected route and even a successful one that it's easy to find quality books out there nowadays. If authors want to get their stuff out there, self-publishing is the perfect way to do it.
I think it's good to make peace with your past before you can move forward with your future. I probably would've gone to Eden, if only find out more of my family's past. I wouldn't have stayed, though. As much as I love the beach, it would have been extremely difficult to walk away from everyone I love for someone I didn't know.
I couldn't agree more. It would fun to get away for a bit and to learn one's past, but I think home will always have an allure (at least for me) that cannot be ignored.
My husband actually gave me the idea. He swears that the myth Eden was based on is located behind my childhood home. We were talking about the place late one night, and I thought, I'm going to write a story about that.
Really? Can I go see this for myself? Because that is cool.
I think I would have picked similar, if not the same, words.
Walker and Ethan were my favorites. Walker was so self-assured, exciting, and carefree. Ethan was so quiet, uncomfortable, and nervous. They were so completely opposite, and I had a lot of fun with them.They will definitely both be coming back in big ways.
Good to know! Ethan was my favorite. There was just something about his calm & quiet nature that made me beg to know more.
I'm working on a new story now in between Eden and the next installment of The Keeper Chronicles that I should finish soon. I love writing, and as long as people keep reading my books and asking for more, I don't plan on stopping.
