Born of Indo-Guyanese parents who lived through the civil disturbances, Michelle and her sister were raised in the east end of Toronto where numerous nationalities intermingled, often raising the question of what makes a Canadian and what claims first generation Canadians have on their cultures of heritage. As the first Canadian in an extended immigrant family saturated by traditions, culture and religion, Michelle explores these topics and delivers a unique perspective on Guyana's fragmentation in the first of her novels.

Michelle has earned a Bachelors specializing in English literature from the University of Toronto and currently lives in Toronto Canada with her husband, her daughter, and stepdaughter.
