Michele Young-Stone 

Michele Young-Stone is the author of Above Us Only Sky (Simon & Schuster, 2015), a vividly imagined novel about a magical, powerful force connecting a family across oceans and generations. Young-Stone's novel has been highly praised. With "breathless prose" and "inventive storytelling," she "has written a novel both fanciful and brutally realistic." Michele's debut novel The Handbook for Lightning Strike Survivors (Shaye Areheart, 2010), has received stellar reviews from Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Booklist, and The Boston Globe. At age 30, Michele decided to quit teaching and write the book she'd been dreaming of writing since she was seven years old. So far, she's written two. Michele currently resides in the Outer Banks with her husband, son, dog, and a bearded dragon named Harry Potter.
