about michelle

I write poetry, erotica, and dark fiction. My work has appeared in art galleries, audio and e-book formats, online, and in digital and print journals, anthologies, and books.

I have presented poetry through the Boundless Tales Reading Series, exhibited at Drift Station Gallery & Performance Art Space, and have published work in many poetry collections including Redactions Poetry, Nefarious Ballerina, Bare Hands Poetry (with corresponding audio), Feather Lit, Oysters & Chocolate, Handful of Dust, Mannequin Envy, Copper Nickel, The Mom Egg, and The Butterfly Chronicles.

My Mother’s Daughter, a collection of poems from 1998 – 2002, published in 2012, is available as an e-book. Persephone’s Affliction, a poetry chapbook (illustrated by me!), is available both in print and digitally, and was published in July, 2015.

Some of my fictional work has been presented through Triple S: Sexy Scribes Speaking, Storychord and Lotus Blooms, and I have had stories published in several anthologies including Rose Red Review, Tales from the Moonlit Path, Oysters & Chocolate, Penthouse, Cleis Press’ Fairy Tale Lust, Lustfully Ever After, Duty and Desire, Best Bondage Erotica, The Big Book of Submission, A Princess Bound, and James Ward Kirk Fiction’s Serial Killers Quattuor and Niall Parkinson’s No Sight for the Saved, in which I received a JWK Fiction Editor’s Choice Award for my story, “She.”

Into the Woods, a collection of dark and erotic short stories, was published in March, 2014 through Oneiros Books and is available in both print and digital formats. I am presently at work on another short story collection, which I hope to publish in 2017.

Michelle’s work is engaging, visceral and triggers the imagination. I feel like she is someone I’d meet as I walk through the night forest’s dreamscape.  – Elsa Holland

Into the Woods

This sexually explicit anthology is dark, theme-focused, provocative, enticing (on multiple levels) and mood-effective, with no wasted words and plenty of nuance. All of these stories here have something to recommend them. Coupled with Inoue’s anthology-appropriate, equally alluring artwork, this is a great read, as well as one of the best erotic anthologies I’ve read in a long while. Worth owning, this. – Steve Isaac

Unique collection of beautifully written stories which revisit fairy tales and mythology as dreams, fantasies and nightmares. Loved it! – Robin

Individual stories

The Kiss is from Michelle Augello-Page. It is a sensual story whose underlying plot I didn’t get until the very last paragraph. Very intense and alluring. – Bruce Von Stiers

“Into the Woods” : This “contemporary retelling” of Hansel and Gretel lives up to that description, with its troubling, sweet and non-erotic brevity and excellent finish. One of my favorite stories in this collection. – Steve Isaac

I liked this collection of modern, dark, edgy, and erotic fairy tales, my favorite is Wolf Moon … It is not the erotic or romance that really makes this collection shine, but it is the dark edgy tone of the fairy tales. – M.Orias

Possibilities of more intricate action do open up, but only Michelle Augello-Page’s ferocious “Wolf Moon” truly shakes off the shackles – or, should I say, straps them on. – Jenny Swallows

Another reader, Michelle Augello-Page, stood the stage next. Her prose morosely danced throughout a forest of deceit and infidelity. The words hung ornate, impossible to understand without its cousins. Augello-Page’s story cradled a complex beauty that perhaps would better be appreciated when printed. That doesn’t mean I don’t plan to look up just that, y’know. – BBQChickenRobot

I thought ‘Ring of Fire’ by Michelle Augello-Page was beautifully and romantically written – the language is well crafted and exotic, a more descriptive inclusion that really adds to the variety of tone in the book. – Jo

“Into the Labyrinth” : Entertaining, fever dreamish and, at times, brutal read. – Steve Isaac
