prolific badass

Welcome to Michelle Grewe dot Com. I am a published author and this is my author site. This site is predominantly a very pale pink background on the right side. But dead center to the left, it's all white. Occasionally I splash texts and headlines into white, gray, or pink boxes. Sometimes they have an illustrated sloppy rose ornament above them like it's pinning the text box to the site. The hero image of this page (behind this welcome text) is a photo of me. Hi. I'm Michelle. Pictured here, I am sitting in my bathtub reading the book: Mom for the Holidays. I am escaping the family in my secret bathtub hideaway drinking a glass of red wine and cuddling with a brown fluffy blanket. I am wearing a red sweater and a red rose on a pink bandana wrapped around my long brown-ish hair. I am smiling like, "Let's get this picture over with," as if I didn't just ask someone to take this picture to promote that book on Facebook. My eyes are looking up at us, they are saying, "Yes, you caught me. In the bathtub. Trying to read." Even though the whole thing was kind of staged.

As Seen On

Logo for Popsugar. A sans serif with a lot of spacing between letters followed by a period.
Logo for The Good Men Project. A subdued Navy Blue and Sky Blue, The Good Men Project is a serif font, "The conversation no one else is having."
Blunt Moms Logo. Bright colorful Green B for Boss Ass Bitch. An Orange L for Lovers of Life. A bright yellow U for Underappreciated. A bold pink N for Nevermind. A sky blue T for Tipsy. BLUNT. That's not what those letters actually stand for. I totally made it up. But it vibes us. MOMS is all black. Font is sans serif. Tagline is Honest. Direct. Surprisingly (that's in a script) Hilarious.
Mamalode Logo in black and fancy serif font.

I've been reading your writing for over a year now. It's been iconoclastic, personal, gritty, and colorful.

A black and white photo of Michelle Grewe, a white woman in a gray hooded sweater that ties across the top under the neck as if her fashion was trying to mimic the false innocence of Little Red Riding Hood. Reinforcing that look, she is also wearing a silver pendant of Christ. Her dark brown hair sits just below her shoulders, and her wide eyes are looking to the left and at you at the same time like a creepy portrait in a haunted castle from a rejected Scooby Doo episode. Her smile looks like the Cheshire Cat is trying not to smile.
