Levigne, Michelle

Michelle lives in Ohio, just about half an hour from Lake Erie and Cleveland. She graduated from Northwestern College, Iowa, with a BA in theater/English, and from Regent University, Virginia, with an MA in communication (film/writing). She has over 40 short stories and poems to her credit in fan fiction--Star Trek, Highlander, the Phoenix, Beauty & the Beast, Stingray, among others. Her first professional sale was also a first-place win in the Writers of the Future Contest, with the short story "Relay."

Michelle has written a number of series set in very different "Universes". To make them easier to keep track of, I have detailed the four universes currently available/or becoming available from Writers Exchange below (including all known book titles). Below that are detailed descriptions and cover art for each of her books.

Faxinor Universe

Faxinor Universe LogoLegend says long ago, Yomnian gave to each country its own Spirit Sword, entrusted to a Sword Bearer to lead in the defense of each country, and also to provide spiritual guidance. If necessary, the Sword Bearer could overrule the word and authority of the king, but those to whom the most power and authority have been entrusted also have the highest standards and the most expected of them. As the centuries passed, Sword Bearers fell, and the Spirit Sword for each country was lost.

Now only one country, Reshor, has a Spirit Sword. Its bearer, Rakleer, has vanished into mist and memory, waiting until need and danger will awaken the sword to choose a new Bearer and lead in the defense of Reshor.

Current books:

  1. Heir of Faxinor
  2. Lorien
  3. Traitors
  4. Sword of Faxinor (currently being written)

The Commonwealth Universe

Commonwealth Logo

From the Downfall of a galactic civilization to barbarism, and the long climb back to the stars... The journey continues!

Please see the individual book details for a detailed explanation of this universe as it was too long to put in this section.

Given into the keeping of the Hounds of Hamin, the members of the Hunt have been separated by time as well as distance. They know each other by the scars--rows of teeth marks--on their wrists. Some have been in our world for decades, others have only been here for a few years. They have to find each other--and soon, before more enemies show up to destroy them--and find a way back home to save their world.

    1. Dawn Memories
    2. Quartet
    3. Butterfly
    4. Finders, Keepers
    5. The Gathering

    We are hoping that Michelle will continue adding books to this series to flesh it out even more, but the above five, do make a complete series all by themselves. These books are also available in print.

    Wildvine Universe

    Wildvine Universe LogoIn multiple worlds and universes and dimensions of reality, there are tales of Hub Worlds, where many different realms can meet and intersect. Some travel between worlds through the power of the mind and Talents born into the blood, while others are chosen through vision and prophecy and step between worlds with the power of talismans. None can go to the others' worlds, except when they meet in a Hub World.

    Wildvine County, somewhere in the United States, is that pivotal point where the travelers from multiple worlds and universes meet.

    The story begins when refugees from a world called Rehdonna stumble through the vortex to Wildvine. Through danger and treachery, the only one who can take them home again was killed, but they live in hope that someday, one of them will be born with the Talent and can find the way home again.

    The Wildvine Books currently known are:
    1. Jahanna
    2. Istorica
    3. Felin-Ru
    4. Old Solar's Shoppe
    5. Apprentice Solar
