She loves reading and writing speculative fiction – particularly alt-future sci fi, urban fantasy, cyberpunk and contemporary gothic.
When she is not reading or writing, Mikhaeyla enjoys listening to music, drinking mojitos, watching Supernatural and engaging in passionate discussion about politics, religion and humanity. She lives in the Hunter Valley region of NSW, Australia, spending her time between the serenity of hinterland acreage and the vibrancy of Newcastle’s creative renaissance.
Mikhaeyla is currently writing Book 1 of Divided Elements – where the lives of Fire Elemental, Anaiya, and Air Elemental, Seth, play out against a backdrop of population control, rebellion and shifting loyalties.
