Michelle Vernon was born in Alabama, and raised in North Carolina in a family nurtured by a brilliant and funny academic father and a dramatic and adventurous mother. She credits both parents with her love of learning but her interest in true crime comes from her mother. On a school field trip as a child her mother had her picture taken sitting in Yellow Mama, Alabama’s electric chair!
Besides true crime, Michelle has many interests including psychology, nutrition and history. She once spent her vacation on a medieval restoration project in France. She values breadth of experience, illustrated in part by her occupational diversity. She has held positions in printing, retail, food service, counseling, psychology research and is currently a corporate worker bee.
She’s an indulgent caretaker to a wonderful dog Patches and cat Piseach. She is a hobbyist soap-maker and In her spare time she loves to ride horses. She has even competed in local barrel-racing and cowboy mounted shooting. She is still in search of her tribe.
