About Michelle


Welcome to my Writing Blog, Juiced on Writing. Here, I intend documenting my findings and wanderings through the writing world, as I hope to build a career in both fiction writing and writing in various freelance areas.

My name is Michelle Thompson, and I am an unpublished creative writer (still working on that) but published non-fiction writer and (obviously) rabid blogger.

I am a New Zealander, but living with my family (which includes plenty of animals) in a lovely English village in the Cambridgeshire Fens, U.K. I have travelled reasonably widely  and worked in New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and England. I am currently rebelling against hitting my mid-forties.

I have a background in I.T. and software development, and am skilled at analysis, managing projects and people and producing results. This is complemented with a passion in creativity, having won contests and being published in both paper-based and digital arts. My creative skills have finally matured into my life-ambition of writing.
