About the Speaker:Michelle Gable is the international bestselling author of The Paris Apartment, inspired by the true discovery of an apartment left vacant for over 70 years, frozen in time. This fantastic debut novel has been critically acclaimed by multiple publications, including the San Diego Union Tribune. Her second novel, I’ll See You in Paris was published in Spring 2016.
Michelle attended the College of William & Mary and majored in accounting. In her opinion, “Accounting is a beautiful thing, this zero-sum math. A debit here, a credit there. Everything balances. You always know when you have it right. Writing can be like this too. Sometimes a story comes together from nowhere, the plot holes miraculously filled.” She currently works in FP&A and Investor Relations at a publicicly-traded software company, living in San Diego with her husband and children. Despite her busy day to day life, she always makes time to write, whether it’s at 5 in the morning or 11 at night.
