Queen Michelle, Here There and Everywhere!

Red River Pulpwood Queen Michelle McCrary is a devoted wife, mom, and then some. But did you know that she is a writer? Yes, Michelle, I said WRITER. She is currently contributing to the local Minute Magazine, covering the newest popular sport, roller derby. She also edited the horror short story anthology Dead Set: A Zombie Anthology along with Joe McKinney. This book just won third place in the Independent Publisher Book Awards in the category of horror!

Her entire family is one to talk about. Veteran dad, 2 smart boys who have won awards in Kung Fu, and of course Michelle, who hosts the Shreveport Zombie Walk each year to bring in food for the area food banks. Active in their church and community, it is no wonder that Family Circle Magazine (read article here) chose to spotlight the McCrarys in the current, June 2011, issue. Find it on newsstands now! Congrats Queen Michelle!
