Sierra Michaels was born in Cincinnati then moved to Los Angeles as a young adult. Because of her passion for culture, both past and present, she pursued a Master’s degree in Anthropology with a concentration in Archaeology. During her years in college she had the opportunity to travel widely and study culture first hand. She also realized that Los Angeles gave her a unique opportunity to observe the many subcultures within the city. It is one of these subcultures that inspired her to write Intimate Encounters.
Sierra currently resides in Florida with her husband, her loving diva dog Yoda and three rebellious cats. Most of her writing takes place at her second home in Bimini, a small island in the Bahamas. Intimate Encounters is her first novel, but not her last.
