Born in Newport, Rhode Island, Michelle Kenoyer has lived and traveled across the United States. She has also traveled to Canada, Mexico, Central America, Ireland, and Eastern Europe. Part of her travel experiences included volunteering as a "ghost editor" for a Holocaust survivor’s autobiography; this work included research and travel throughout Poland and the Czech Republic. Her experiences led her to write her own works about the Holocaust, specializing in Jewish resistance against the Nazi war machine. As a result of much of her research and travels, she has completed "The Partisan and the Prisoner," a screenplay about Jewish partisan fighters during the Holocaust.
Michelle earned her bachelor’s degree in English and her master's degree in Instructional Technology, and also took graduate-level screenwriting courses at both the University of North Texas and the University of Washington. She has since worked as a writer and editor for a variety of companies, where she has helped to write and edit numerous technical articles, user education materials, and corporate training courses. She has also published numerous articles in newspapers, magazines, and computer-based travel guides. To this date, she has completed six feature-length scripts and two screenplay shorts, one of which she has optioned.
