About Michelle Vongkaysone
My name is Michelle Vongkaysone. I am a native of Texas and a distinguished scholar of Amarillo College and West Texas A & M University. I've been a life-long advocate and enthusiast of the arts, but especially literature.
I've been told, by educators and peers alike, that I have a flair for writing. Whether they be scholarly essays, contemplation on life's nature or merely little fictional drabbles, people have been enthralled by my works. As such, I have had various pieces published within academic compilations and the like.
However, I'd like to broaden my horizons with fictional works. Some are short, stand-alone stories, and others are part of a larger whole. They may fall under any genre, covering numerous topics. But, remember: I write because I love this craft. I adore building these worlds, painting my thoughts into prose, just telling the tales of my very own creations.
And now I'd like to share them with you, my attentive audience.
