Get To Know An Author–Michelle Davis

Here’s a bit about the author

Can you describe your dream home?

Modern design; natural earthy materials; big family room with inviting fireplace; well-equipped kitchen; a garage big enough for all of the “toys”; fabulous mountain views; ample storage; and enough guestrooms for family and friends to visit! Oh, and I’d like a dog bath in the garage… plus a heated driveway so we wouldn’t have to shovel!

If we were to come to your house for a meal, what would you give us to eat?

I LOVE this question because cooking is so much fun. Here you go:

Appetizers: Cheese and crackers along with freshly cut veggies served with hummus. My husband would make his famous margaritas or “Aspen Freshes.”

Salad: Caesar salad.

Entrée:  A bowl consisting of quinoa, black rice, or roasted chopped sweet potatoes. Then I’d add a variety of sautéed veggies – spinach, zucchini, asparagus, mushrooms, and broccoli. After that I’d then top it with a protein, most likely shrimp or chicken. Finally, I’d add shaved parmesan, sliced almonds, and cilantro.

Desert: Chocolate peanut butter brownies. And, of course we’d have some nice wines.

Tell us about the absolute BEST fan letter you have received.

I haven’t received a fan letter yet, but I’ve gotten some beautiful texts. And two of the first several people who read Learning to Bend asked for a sequel!

Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?

I would choose Ireland. I absolutely love this country. And, since I’d be doing research, it would be helpful that I can speak the language. Plus, I’m over 40 percent Irish, so doing research in Ireland would be fascinating.

Who designed the book cover for the book you are touring?

Melanie Brill designed the book cover. I met Melanie through yoga, then I worked with her to design my website, elevate. She did such an amazing job that when it was time to choose an individual to create the book cover, I knew exactly who I wanted.

No tours planned yet, but I am open to the idea.

Jenna Moore’s flawlessly orchestrated life and engagement to Ben Kelly, “the perfect man,” vanish when she discovers a controlling side of her fiancé. Confused and unsure of who she is without Ben, Jenna decides to uproot from her safe, predictable life in Boston and move to Bend, Oregon, hoping to find her answers there. It’s when she meets Jackson, a former Navy SEAL who battles demons of his own, that Jenna finds the courage to let go of being perfect and embrace uncomfortable risks, transforming her life through forgiveness, compassion, surrender and acceptance. Yet the rewards from discovering her true self exceed Jenna’s expectations – not only does she find the greatest love of her life, but she also understands what’s kept her from learning to bend.

And a taste of the story

Yet, at that moment, there is a subtle shift in my being. As devastated and lost as I feel, a small part of me unfolds, almost releases. I can’t describe the feeling as it’s something I’ve never before experienced. I breathe, inhaling Ben’s scent, knowing it’s most likely the last time I am going to be this close to him. Then Ben moves his hand to the back of my head, pulling me towards him, passionately kissing me as we momentarily return to who we were. My body instinctively takes over as I languish in his taste, surrendering to him, if only for a few seconds. But I come to my senses and pull away. We are no longer the Jenna and Ben who are about to be married in two months. No, that couple is gone. It’s then that I do the unavoidable – I slowly remove the ring from my left finger and press it into Ben’s hand. After all, this is a family antique. It no longer belongs to me. I call for Sam, give Ben a final goodbye kiss on the cheek, and leave.
