An emerging writer herself, Michelle is on her own writing adventure and loving it! Below are the links to her current publications or a examples of work that has been created by the 'wonderful minds' she has written with.
The Moon's Beam
Have you ever wondered how the moon keeps its shine? Do you know whose job it is to help each moonbeam gleam?
Michelle's latest children's book is a magical, heart-warming story that reminds us of the importance of keeping lots of hope and love in our hearts - so much, that there's a little bit left over for a very important job!
Brought to life by enchanting illustrations by Bryony Dique.

'Alike in Dignity'
In 2017, Year 8 pupils from Omagh High School and Sacred Heart College worked together on a Shared Education project. A Rural Centre for Shared Education initiative, facilitated by Michelle Young from The Pushkin Trust and funded by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, the schools explored the story of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet in relation to their lives and the topic of diversity.
