Everything she writes is always inspired by the people around her. Sometimes
someone she knows would do or say something interesting and she would have to
write about it. Or she would be having coffee at a café and she would overhear
people’s conversations and get inspiration from there.
Her life has really been shaped by her identity as a mother. She would do anything
for her children. A lot of her works have them as her inspiration in mind.
Michelle passionately blogs at www.michnavs.wordpress.com, where you can find
her prose and poetry on love, life, motherhood, and her advocacy on abuse and
Her first book, “After-Rain Skies,” a collection of true and inspiring stories of
abuse and violence in prose and poetry, was born in 2019, unexpectedly.
It was written and published in 2019, with the sole intention of creating awareness
on abuse and violence, with the hope of putting an end to the culture of abuse. It
was received so well by many she followed it up with an eBook copy made
available via KOBO.COM.
The pandemic happened in 2020. We were all forced to stay at home and work
from home. That's how she started writing poetry almost every day.
“What If Snowflakes Don’t Fall In Winter?” is her second book, a collection of
poems about the nature of love. The success of her first book made her realized
that she can be a love poet as well. “After-Rain Skies” taught her that love, more
than anything else was what kept these victims going and hoping; their love for
themselves, love for their children, their families, friends, and relatives, and most
of all, their desire to want to love again and build a life around its seasons.
Celebrate how love always changes, just enough to get better and better and better.
The world stopped during the pandemic. It prompted her to write poetry
celebrating humanity’s perseverance and resilience. “Oh! Dear One,” was born to
soothe everyone’s soul amidst the outbreak of a global pandemic.
The outbreak of a global pandemic has led to lockdowns and isolation, which
eventually led to the separation of families, loved ones, friends, and colleagues.
“I Would Fly To Where You Are,” is her fourth poetry book, a collection of poetry
written during the height of the COVID – 19. Reflective of each and everyone’s
love and desire to be with their loved ones – the special occasions we all missed to
celebrate together like birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, and many other
milestones, and also, reflective of the moment we failed to say our final goodbyes
to our loved ones who went ahead of us during the pandemic. This is a collection
of poetry on love; love, surviving against all odds.
We celebrate love, no matter how much it hurts and no matter how painful it is.
We celebrate life and love because there is always tomorrow, a better and kinder
Her fourth book is definitely an epitome of true love. The kind of love that only
gets better and better over the years and that no matter what it takes, it’s the kind of
love worth taking the risk, worth taking the big leap, and worth keeping forever.
Her fifth book “I Will Love You Forever, Too” is an Amazon Best Seller; No.1
New Release on poetry about Love on its first day of release as well as Number 1
trending in Ebook in Kobo.Com. It was among the Top 100 Amazon Best Seller in
Poetry for almost one month.
“I Will Love You, Forever Too” is a compilation of poetry on the greatest love
one can ever have. The kind of love that makes you want to write sappy love
poems all the time (even if you are not a poet), the kind of love that makes you
want to believe in “happily – ever – after” or “dreams – do – come – true”, it is the
kind of love that makes you reflect on all of your “what ifs” and “maybes”, it is the
kind of love where you will completely miss your beloved, strangely, even though
your loved one is gone just briefly, and it is the kind of love that gives you the
courage to commit to love forever.
This book also contained selected poems she wrote, as requested by some of my
very loyal readers and followers.
