"Plenty of thrillers attempt to create spunky female protagonists; but AESOP excels in its gritty, first-person observational style. It will especially delight thriller audiences who like their action nonstop and their characters not just intelligent, but self-determined, driven, and sometimes edgy in their relationships with loved ones, superiors, peers, and the world.


AESOP is highly recommended and is head and shoulders above most thrillers featuring female operatives facing high-level threats and physical and mental challenges."

- D Donova, Senior Reviewer MBR

Packard has created a kickass heroine that possesses beauty, brains, cunning, guts and brawn.

...Matti Baker is deeply involved in the most intriguing and dangerous missions. AESOP contains a perfect balance of action with the right amount of human context woven in. I found Matti Baker a very relatable, wonderfully strong and resourceful female character. Let’s hope that Michele Packard keeps Matti alive to help keep America safe.

Laughed out Loud!

I laughed so many times I lost count while reading this humorous, yet edgy thriller.  The song and movie references were perfect, the characters relatable, and the story exciting.  Cant wait to see what comes next

About The Author

How it all started

I’m (ahem) over 50.  I left a high paying executive job to raise three kids.  No regrets on that.  I haven’t really worked in 15 years. I realized I was likely out of touch in the business world.

 I wanted to do something NEW.


My twins just left for college and I had more time on my hands, and my wonderful husband encouraged me to go do what I enjoy.  So, I sat down on the computer and wrote a story based off daily events I heard or saw on the radio or TV.  Each day, I had to incorporate whatever new piece of information I heard. It was a puzzle that I had to put together not knowing what the next piece or ending was going to be.  It was fun!  I self published and started looking around for the next thing. I went in my attic and started polishing off previous writings and now exploring how to bring these to life for others to enjoy.  


I'm learning as I go.

( use a good editor, don't skimp on graphics,

ask for advice, yada, yada...)


It's all new, but it's all good.


I wish I could say I'm a great writer, but really, I'm a storyteller that has started using writing as a medium to connect with others to share and laugh in life's experiences.

...And I have A LOT of experiences!

An Impassioned Storyteller


Pretty simple:  




My 2 Labs

People who have a great sense of humor

A good bottle of wine




So, the first book I published had all of these things!
