Meet the Author of Petey the Pitbull.
Michelle is a Marine Corps veteran from Council Bluffs, Iowa, who currently lives in New Bern, North Carolina with her husband, five children, and four dogs.
She is currently studying for her BFA in Creative Writing for the Entertainment Industry and set to graduate in March 2021.
We got our Petey the Pitbull, with three legs, in November of 2018. She quickly became my son's best friend and most loyal companion. In December of 2018, our son received his diagnosis of Autism.
I wrote Petey the Pitbull to shine a light on how close friendships can develop despite our differences.
"A wonderfully uncomplicated plot with a profound meaning. What a beautiful story to get kids thinking deeply about differences and friendship."
