Michele Marie Tate

Michele was born in Cleveland, Ohio. For the past fourteen years she has lived in Portland, Oregon with her husband of forty-three years, their daughter and her family. She pursued a career as a health professional, but always made time for what she loves most-writing. Recurrent childhood dreams, unexplained visions and questions about life and death drove her to read Edgar Casey and others who could transcend the physical plane. On her spiritual journey she took classes in Tarot, which opened her dyslexic mind to receive higher guidance. Later she also obtained a degree as a certified Hypnotherapist specializing in past life regression. When her son died in a tragic car accident at the age of twenty-one, she longed to have an even greater understanding of the bigger picture of life. Her son, Irwin, had composed over forty songs and written a screenplay. Together they had begun writing a children's book called Pizarus. Michele finished it and hopefully one day that too, will be published. In 1998 she joined Willamette Writers and has attended writers workshops and conferences. After meeting a new friend in Oregon, who read some of her writing, she was asked to give life to the heartwrenching story of her husband's murder. Thus began her debut novel, Blood, Money, Power. Many hours of research followed to give this historical novel's readers a trip back in time. Michele continues her spiritual growth by studying the Kabbalah, meditation and being a mystic guide and energy reader. Her travels to China, Chile, Europe and Machu Picchu offered ageless understanding about our world. Most recently she has begun a sequel that promises to keep her readers asking for more. "My daily aspirations are to support our planet and live in kindness and consciousness. I always seek the truth, justice and peace for all humanity."

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.)

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
