Michelle Gagnon is a former modern dancer, bartender, dog walker, model, personal trainer, freelance journalist, and Russian supper club performer. Critics agree that her performance at most of these professions was middling at best. Her bestselling thrillers have been published in dozens of languages worldwide and were nominated for a Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense and a Thriller Award. While they failed to garner either of these prestigious prizes, the banquet dinners were lovely. Michelle has served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate in the foster care system, specializing in work with LGBTQ+ Transitional Age Youth. A graduate of Wesleyan University, she is pursuing a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University Los Angeles. A native Rhode Islander (sort of), she is currently a reluctant Angeleno, where she lives with her family and way too many pets.

Killing Me


She escaped a serial killer. Then things got weird.

Amber Jamison can’t believe she’s about to become the latest victim of a serial killer. She’s savvy and street smart, so when she gets pushed into, of all things, a white windowless van, she’s more angry than afraid. Things get even weirder when she is miraculously saved by a mysterious woman . . . who promptly disappears. Who was she? And why is she hunting serial killers?

You’d think escaping one psychopath would be enough, but Amber’s problems are just beginning. Her close call has law enforcement circling a past she’s tried to outrun. She’s forced to flee across the country, ending up at a seedy motel in Las Vegas with a noir-obsessed manager and a sex worker as her unlikely companions . . . and danger right behind. She’s landed in the cross hairs of the world’s most prolific killer, caught up in a deadly game that’s been going on for years. To survive, Amber is forced to dust off her old playbook and partner with someone she can’t trust. The odds are against her, but sometimes you just have to roll the dice.
