Michele E. Northwood
Michele has had an interesting life. She was a dancer, magician and fire-eater who toured the world for over twenty years in theatre, musicals and circus.She has been in the Guinness Book of records for being part of the world´s largest Human mobile while working for the Circus of Horrors as their first "Girl inside a bottle" where she contorted herself into a 30 cm high glass bottle. Michele has rubbed shoulders with Sting, Chris de Burg, David Copperfield, Claudia Schiffer and Maurice Gibb from the Bee Gees. She has worked as a knife throwers assistant, assisted a midget in his balancing act and has also taken part in the finale of a Scorpions concert.
When she retired from entertainment, she went back to school and now has a First Class Honours degree in Modern languages, (English and Spanish). Michele currently lives in Spain with her Spanish husband, three dogs and three cats. She teaches English in a public school and in her own private school so all her writing is done in her free time.
She is concerned about climate change, the abundance of plastic pollution and hates the way human-unkind treat the other species which inhabit this beautiful planet which we are slowly destroying.
Michele has won several writing competitions, and has been published in two anthologies. Her first book, a true story- "Fishnets in the Far East: A dancer´s diary in Korea" was published in 2019 and the sequel, "Fishnets and Fire-eating" which deals with a contract in Japan is currently in the pipeline.She is working on her third book.
