Author: Michelle Turner
Published: Self Published – October 3rd, 2012
Word Count: Approx. 61,000
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

Bloom was abandoned by her mother at birth, but thanks to her dad she never once felt unloved. When he is killed in a car wreck, leaving her without any close family, she spends a year mourning him. Her heart has been cut out of her chest and nothing is left but an empty hole that she doesn’t think will ever heal. Then one night after work she finds a wounded dog in the woods behind her house and takes him in, not realizing he’s more than just some stray dog but a wolf shifter, who happens to be her mate.

Pike is getting over the loss of his father by running full force away from his responsibilities. He’s getting ready to go back to face his new position as the Alpha of his pack when he catches the scent that can only belong to his mate.

When Bloom finds out she may not be the normal human she always thought herself to be, she’s forced to search out the woman who abandoned her at birth.

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?

My grandma’s biscuits & gravy. So yummy!

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?

Miranda Lambert’s “Over You” fits Bloom at the beginning of the book so well. I heard it on the radio after I had already written the first half of the book and I was like dang that’s exactly what Bloom was going through.
When you were little, what did you want to be when you "grew up"? 

I wanted to be Dolly Parton, well not her but a country singer. Then I grew up and realized I couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket.
What's your favorite season/weather? 

Fall. I love when the leaves change colors and you can wear hoodies and carve pumpkins.

Favorite music?

I like a little bit of everything, but I was raised on country music so it’s always been my favorite.
What are your current literary works? Any sneak peeks? 

I’m working on a new book titled Promised. It’s about a boy who falls for a gypsy girl and she’s forced to choose between him and her family. You can find a sneak peek on my Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/#!/notes/reviving-bloom-by-michelle-turner/first-chapter-of-promised/408701215864483
What is your favorite scene in the book and why do you love it? 
I have a soft spot for the lake scene where Bloom is attacked by Trace and Pike has shift back to help her. I know it’s not a happy scene, but that scene was the first idea I had for Reviving Bloom and what the whole story was built around. 
Best Christmas present? 

The quilt my grandma made me for Christmas a few years ago.

Favorite writing spot?

My recliner. I kick back with my laptop and some music and let the story flow out.

Skittles or M&Ms? 
M&Ms. Chocolate will always win when it comes to me. 

Michelle is a 28 year old native Ohioan. Go Buckeyes! She lives with her husband and son. When she isn’t spending time with her family or working you can find her with her nose stuck in a good book. On October 3, 2012 she released her first book as an independent author, Reviving Bloom.
