I write. I work in libraries. I brew beer. I drink too much tea and coffee.

Welcome to my piece of the ‘verse.

Michelle Boule full

My name is Michelle Boule and I am a writer, geek, educator, and librarian living in Sheridan, WY. I am currently working on multiple writing projects, some with my partner in crime, Stephanie Blackheart, and some on my own.

There are many ways to contact me here.

The Turning Creek series, a historical fantasy series with Greek mythology set in Colorado in the 1850s and 1860s, is a perfect read for you if you like romance, mythology, small towns, and characters who are bit too much of… everything.

My non-fiction book, entitled Mob Rule Learning: camps, unconferences, and trashing the talking head, on the nature of collaborative education at (un)conferences and in professional education is available now.

I have an English degree from Texas A&M University and received my MLS from Texas Woman’s University. In 2008, I was named a Library Journal Mover and Shaker. I have created online learning environments, taught in-person classes, presented on a wide variety of subjects, been a Social Sciences Librarian at the University of Houston, shelved books, read books, written articles, organized unconferences, and have participated in subversive activities in an effort to save the world.

I am married to my very own rocket scientist turned professional brewer who puts up with my crazy ways and keeps me around for reasons undiscovered by modern scientists. We journeyed from sea level, Houston, to the mountains of Wyoming so Mr. R could brew full time. I love beer made by monks and men in kilts. I have 2 boys and one large dog who thinks she rules the world. I will read almost anything in book form, love to cook, bake, and go camping. I dislike steamed zucchini, snow skiing, and running. Unless there are zombies. I would run if there were zombies.

I started this blog in November of 2004 on Blogger as an anonymous librarian posting under the name “Jane.” I have come a long way since then, personally and professionally, but I would not change a thing.
