Author has written 73 stories for General, General, Song, Romance, Life, Friendship, Love, Supernatural, Family, and Young Adult.

EDIT: 011/4/16: New short up.

I might occasionally post a story there before I put it here, but I will always post on both sites. Please do me the favor and take the time to check out my other page! Thank you.


My name's Michelle. You might have formally known me as "Micharu Dufrene"; but I changed my pen name to something more practical.

I have been writing since I was old enough to hold a pencil. Down below you will find some of my many writings. Some of them are stories, some poetry. Some of them are completed, some of them are not. Basically, this is for anything I write, completed novel, or one-paragraph long dabble that I feel is good enough for you to read.

I do not write as often as I used to. Inspiration comes long and hard. I've lived a hard life, and everything I write is inspired by my life and long lost love. I'm only in my early thirties, but I've already experienced things I wish to forget.

For the basis of these reasons, and many more, my writings all reflect the things that I have experienced, wished I had experienced, and can only hope to experience. They are reflections of my inner most desires, wants, memories, and hauntings, which brings about their rawness and emotional purity.

I thank everyone who wishes me to continue writing one of my short stories, and if I ever find the free time between my job, daily life, and being a cosplayer, (as well as attempting to fulfill all of my impractical dreams), I may take you up on your offer! I do consider every review.
