"SPOTLIGHT" Author Blog Tour for Michelle Abbott



I’m not a poet, although I did use to write poems back when I was a teen. For the last day of my tour, I thought I’d share with you a poem I write for a poetry contest here are RRBC in which we had to write a poem that included the words ‘April Showers’ and ‘Is it April Fools.’ I didn’t win, nor did I expect to, but it was fun to try my hand at poetry again after so many years.


Darkened skies, April showers

 Pattering against my window pane

 Feet sloshing through wet puddles

 Blinking droplets from my eyelashes

 The smell of damp hair

 Plastered to my head

 Forgot my umbrella...again

 They forecast sun, not rain

 Is it April Fools?

Author Bio
Michelle Abbott lives in the UK and hates describing herself in 3rd person. She's a self-published author who loves to write new adult romance about heroes who begin as the underdog and are protective of their girl. She's an avid reader of romance, is addicted to coffee and loves wine and chocolate, so yeah, not the most healthy eating and drinking habits :-) She spends way too much time online when she should be writing. She collects teddy bears and occasionally knits a couple of rows on a sweater she started years ago, which she may eventually finish in time to wear for her funeral.



  1. Welcome to my blog, Michelle. I hope your "Spotlight" Author Blog Tour is a big success! Your books sound most interesting and I will be checking them out soon.


    1. Thanks so much for hosting me, Carol :-) I love your blog.

    2. Thank you Michelle. It is an honor to have you here. We share the dislike of writing Bios in the 3rd person. Seems to me if it is an Author Bio it could be understood that she is writing about herself and therefore it would be acceptable to write in 1st person. Who makes all the rules, anyway? Ah well...

      Best wishes,
