Michelle Shocklee

Michelle Shocklee is the author of several historical novels. Her work is included in numerous Chicken Soup for the Soul books, magazines, and blogs. As a woman of mixed heritage--her father's family is Hispanic and her mother's roots go back to Germany--she celebrates diversity and feels it's important to see the world through the eyes of one another. Learning from the past and changing the future is why she writes historical fiction. Her historical time-slip novel, UNDER THE TULIP TREE, a 2021 Christy Award and Selah Award Finalist, is set in 1930s & 1860s Nashville and tells a story of unlikely friendship, reconciliation, and forgiveness. Based on extensive research into the Federal Writers' Project Slave Narratives of 1936, as well as the writings of Frederick Douglass and others, many of the scenes in UNDER THE TULIP TREE are taken directly from the pages of history. Library Journal gave UNDER THE TULIP TREE a starred review. With both her sons grown, she and her husband now make their home in Tennessee, not far from the historical sites she writes about.
