More About the Author

Michelle has always loved storytelling. When she was a child, her favorite stories were of monsters and things that lurked in the dark. Telling stories often frightened her classmates and got her into a lot of trouble with her teachers. They had no sense of humor.

As an adult, Michelle traded her love of writing for the corporate life where she was an IT professional. Today, she's doing what she loves best - writing and storytelling.

Author Michelle Muto has done something for me, no other author ever has, she made me cry. This is a good thing! Don't Fear The Reaper for me was absolutely the perfect read. The story so well executed and flawlessly written. Only a few times in my life have I devoured a book and not wanted it to end. I won't do the typical rehashing the plot, because this book is too good to give anything away about it! Just read the preview blurb that should hook you! Don't Fear The Reaper has a storyline that keeps you glued to whatever format you're reading it in! The characters are so damn 3 dimensional you feel like you are right there with them every step of the way. The style of writing flows and the dialogue is spot on, never corny or over the top. As I read I found myself becoming more and more emotionally invested in all the characters, something that will make me treasure this book always and look upon it as easily my favorite read of all time.

If any agent reads this review, you would do well to grab Michelle as your client, because you will only be kicking yourself if you don't! Michelle Muto is destined to become a giant in this industry, if you don't believe me, then read "Don't Fear The Reaper," and you will know exactly what I'm talking about!

5 stars is not enough for this beautifully executed and brilliant work of literature.
So I'm breaking the rules and giving it infinity plus 1!

I originally read Michelle Muto's novel back when it first came out in 2011 and it just happened to be around the same time that news reports about two Australian twin sisters having shot themselves in an apparent suicide pact in Colorado. I have to admit that I couldn't go any further with the book at that time. I just felt uncomfortable with the premise of the novel despite the fact that Michelle Muto is an author of considerable talent and one whose work I've read and enjoyed before.

I returned to "Don't Fear The Reaper" recently, having expunged the memories of that terrible news story from my stream of consciousness and what I found in Muto's novel was a compelling journey taken by the protagonist Keely Morrison on the other side of this mortal coil. I was reminded somewhat of the film "What Lies Beneath" only in the sense that I was drawn to the possibilities that story presented and again, here in Muto's novel I was similarly attracted to her take on the after life. And, once again, Muto bends a genre to her will giving it a resounding freshness. Her characters are very well drawn and convincing. There is a sense of dark adventure within these pages and the tome is tense, exciting and thought provoking. Muto does not shy away from the exploration of suicide and its consequences both for her protagonist and for the people she has left behind. It is a risky subject to approach and yet I felt Muto addressed it in such a way that wasn't glamorizing it.

Don't Fear The Reaper is a deftly handled adventure that has moments of real emotion that makes for a rich and enjoyable reading experience.

Don't Fear the Reaper is a beautiful story. It offers an interesting and unique perspective on a heartbreaking subject, and it does so with humor and heart. These are the kinds of characters that you fall in love with and hate to lose when the book comes to an end. I'm thrilled that there will be another book so I can spend more time with all of them, I can't wait to find out what happens in the next stage of Keely's journey and learn more about Daniel.

So, I had a plan yesterday. I was going to sit down and start this book and only read for a few minutes before I stopped and started cleaning for Thanksgiving. Um....it didn't quite work out that way. I didn't get up until I had finished it (along with half a bag of chocolate chips). This is the kind of book that you just don't put down. I'm really struggling with figuring out how to explain why this book is so good. I know that I can't simply say "It just is" and you'll take my word for it. You want details, right?

Part of the draw for me is this author's amazing writing style. It's dark and haunting, but beautiful and delicate even while dealing with a sensitive, ugly subject. It certainly grabs you by the front of the shirt from the very first page and doesn't let you go until you finish reading. It takes a skilled author to do that.

I'll tell you right now, the subject matter is a bit dark. Keely, the main character, commits suicide in the first chapter. She is tortured by her twin sister's murder and takes her own life. But this author doesn't glorify suicide or make it appear as a great `get out of jail free' card. Rather, she shows its ugliness, its hopelessness. Keely is forced to come to terms with her death- and there isn't a moment that she doesn't regret her actions.

Keely goes on to purgatory, where she works with her Reaper and a demon to find her sister in the afterlife and fulfill her purpose. Muto's take on the afterlife is fascinating and sucks you in with exquisite detail. Can there be a Happily Ever After when a book starts with the main character's suicide? The answer is yes, when the author is skilled enough to make you actually like a demon, she is skilled enough to make the ending satisfying.
