Michele L. Waters

Born and raised in Southern California, National Indie Excellence Awards(NIEA) Finalist Michele L. Waters exemplifies the true meaning of the wordssuccess and diligent, which she has so effortlessly been able to project through her hit novels Through the Eyes of My Mulatto Daughter and Can’t Let Go.

Alumni of Long Beach City College where she received an A.A. in Radiologyand University of La Verne where she earned her B.A. in Business Administration, Waters has had more than 10 years as an entrepreneur and more than 20 years in the healthcare industry working with renown medical facilities Cedars Sinai Hospital and Kaiser. With her husband by her side, they founded H&W Adult Residential Homes where they provided two nurturing homes for developmentally challenged adults for 10 years.

Aside from the homes, the dynamic duo founded Dream Makers Unlimited, Inc., a real estate investment company where they currently have an inventory of10 investment properties. Besides her duties as a wifemotherworking full time and managing two companies, Waters escaped the tiresome, but rewarding lifestyle through writing and as a result authored her first novel Can’t Let Go in 2009 and followed with Through the Eyes of My Mulatto Daughter in2010. Named a finalist of the INDIE Awards, Waters has also grasped the attention of Towson University where her second novel is utilized by the prestigious Dr. Walter Gill for his diversity class.

Misdiagnosed with MS in 2000, and after spending the first couple of yearsupset, depressed and living in fear with the thought of having this disease that she did not have, Waters felt that this was God’s way of motivating her to viewand live life with a whole new perspective. Her personal story is one ofcouragepatience and faith that aided her to a path of self-determination,self-motivation and strong will. Her writing style is simplesophisticated; yet full of suspense.

With Can’t Let Go and Through the Eyes of My Mulatto Daughter, Waters has proven to begin a successful track record to challenge the likes of her colleagues within the literary world. Waters states that by “God’s grace and support of family and friends, she is relentlessly inspired to never put off or not attempt to try to accomplish something based on fear.”

“…I poured all of my heart and strength into protecting you from the venomous hatred spewed out from communities when you disappointed them, time and time again. I tried to help you manage your stress, and made sure you had adequate legal representation for the aftermath when you couldn’t. I stood up for you when no one else, genuinely, would…” Excerpt from Broken Spirits: A Letter To My Cousin Rodney G. King
