Michelle Packard just wants people and families to be happy. In her non-fiction self-help mixed with how to book Family Ever After, she seeks to do just that. Let’s have a little fun and learn a little about Michelle! Michelle Packard

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I would have to say my most embarrassing moment was when I was out on a date with a guy, and two times I called him another guys name (who I liked more). Then I tried to cover it up with a super lame excuse. I married that other guy. Insult to injury.

If that doesn’t get you interested in this brand new author, check her out at all these other places:

Do you prefer the people in your life to be simple or complex?
I’m going to go for both. You can understand simple people, not much drama, and you know where they stand. They are usually organized and easy to follow. All positive qualities if you ask me, but…sometimes I need a little excitement and complexity. Someone who can light a fire in me or get my brain tumbling. What a boring world it would be if we had nothing to figure out and no one to entertain us with their unusual, dramatic, or interesting lives.

Do spelling and grammer mistakes annoy you?
As long as I can read it without stopping every few seconds I’m good, but I can’t stand when people use texting acronyms when they are not actually texting…makes me crazy. I like to read real words even if they are misspelled. AIMB…Does anyone even know what that means?

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
I would be a florist. Lest you think I am boring, I love flowers almost as much as I love my children! They just make me happy and they make other people happy. And who doesn’t love something that brings with it such vast amounts of happiness! There are flowers for every emotion and every occasion. They brighten everything! I want to be apart of all that brightness.

Wouldn’t it be fun to chuck it all and go live on a sailboat?
I can’t think of anything better, except for maybe motion sickness and a constant paranoia that one of my children would be hurled out to sea. Unless of course you meant that I would also be leaving my children behind. I think I would miss them.

Now, before we get to the last question, let’s look at Michelle’s book …

Family Ever After by Michelle PackardGot Your Ever After? That is the question of a lifetime. When your Ever After began I’m sure it was a happy one, but, over time, something about family life becomes a little less perfect and likely a lot less glamorous. Call me crazy but I got married so I could be with my husband. See what I said…Crazy. If you are anything like me, and probably the rest of the world, this book is for you. It gives perspective on what we call marriage and family life. Let it be your guide to making your ever after truly, sublimely happy.

In Family Ever After: author Michelle Packard explores and advises on everything from time management to identifying what’s really important in any family, how to celebrate play to solving conflicts without making it worse, and managing expectations to developing a positive outlook on real patience.

Favorite one-line review about the book

Family Ever After is a must-read for every happily married Cinderella who wonders why she’s still holding the broom.” —Rachelle J. Christensen, award-winning author of Wrong Number and Caller ID

Favorite 6 sentences from the book

This is not the ever after I imagined years ago, as the satin folds of my white sparkling princess dress twirled around me and I was lost in my hus- band’s brown eyes. Nor is it what I imagined during our short honeymoon bliss. This is better because this is real. Find your vision of ever after and live it; you may be sur- prised to find the journey is the part you love the most.

Buy it now …

But before you go, one last question …

Are you cheap or thrifty?
Heavens No! I try to be but sometimes I get tired of using things that fall apart because I bought them at the Dollar store. I just have to go buy it again anyway and that takes more time. And if you want to talk about time, bargain hunting is not for me. I don’t have the patience to spend hours searching out that one amazing deal that I need five coupons to purchase. I’d rather have less quality things than tons of cheap somethings, and I’d rather put my time somewhere else.

Congratulations, Michelle! Good luck with Family Ever After!
