About this month’s featured writer Micki Berthelot Morency
Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Micki Berthelot Morency grew up with six siblings in a close-knit family. She graduated from Northeastern University, Boston, Massachusetts, and, for many years, worked in the corporate world, before finding her calling as an advocate for the elderly, the young, and the disabled.
For 10 years, she owned and managed a retirement home in St. Petersburg, Florida. She was also a Case Manager at a transitional housing for abused women and their children. As a Support Coordinator for the State of Florida, she advocated on behalf of individuals with developmental disabilities to be mainstreamed and live in their communities.
Micki’s diverse background as an immigrant has enriched her life and has provided her with a host of issues and life experiences to write about. She’s also an avid reader and an enthusiastic storyteller who loves to travel to new places and meet new people.
She writes so she can share her personal experiences through fiction, non-fiction, and essays with unsuspecting folks.
She lives in Florida with her husband, where they raised two daughters.
Her debut novel, “The Island Sisters,” was published in June 2023 with BHC Press.
