Michelle Gable, a native of San Diego, began writing in the fourth grade and has written nearly every day since then. Her most recent book is The Summer I Met Jack (St. Martin’s Press, 2018).

A novel, The Summer I Met Jack is based on the life of Alicia Corning Clark, a woman who J. Edgar Hoover insisted was paid by the Kennedys to keep quiet, not only about her romance with Jack Kennedy, but also a baby they may have had together.

Gable is no stranger to Virginia, graduating from of The College of William & Mary. In 2016, she ended her 20- year career in finance. She now resides in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, California with her husband, two daughters, lazy cat, and very feisty bunny.
