Alaska magazine editor since 2013, Michelle Theall started her career in publishing in 1994 at Women's Sports and Fitness magazine. Over the next 28 years, she garnered success as editor-in-chief of three different national titles, founder of one, and the author of three non-fiction books. She has appeared on NBC Today, MSNBC, The Travel Channel, and was recently featured in O, The Oprah Magazine. Her feature essay in 5280 Magazine, All That's Left is God, earned a GLAAD Media Award nomination, which led to her critically acclaimed memoir, Teaching the Cat to Sit, about growing up gay and Catholic in the Texas Bible Belt.
Reviews
Praise for The Wind will Catch You
"A heart-aching story about the resilience of hope. Michelle Theall does a brilliant job of taking us into the lives of characters who, despite unthinkable tragedy, somehow keep moving forward, toward love. A beautiful novel about the best and worst in human relationships, from siblings to parents to the family we choose, this book had me at the first page and held onto me to the very last."
--Buzzy Jackson, award-winning author of To Die Beautiful and member of the National Book Critics' Circle

"A compelling and emotional novel, full of hope and redemption."
--Erika Krouse, 2023 Edgar award-winning author of Tell Me Everything: The Story of a Private Investigation

"Michelle Theall is a writer of deep heart, insight, and an uncanny ability to capture human longing and emotion . . . Read The Wind Will Catch You for the plot twists that will keep you standing on the porch of your own house lost in a world created by Theall's genius."
--Tracy Ross, author of The Source of All Things and winner of the National Magazine Award

"Theall weaves a swift plot filled with characters so completely worth rooting for . . . An open-eyed examination of the way our past affects our present, and how--with hope and love and help--we might inhabit a brighter future. It's impossible to read the first pages and not connect with this wounded and beautiful protagonist, her story unfolding like gusts across American landscapes. For all who have ever hurt, or healed, there is honesty and courage here."
--Andrew J. Graff, author of Raft of Stars

Praise for Teaching the Cat to Sit: A Memoir

"At once powerful and touching, Michelle Theall's moving memoir captures the meaning of family--the families we inherit and the ones we make."
--Piper Kerman, New York Times bestselling author of Orange is the New Black

"A clear-eyed, brave-hearted and utterly unforgettable memoir about life's big things--love, faith, identity, and justice--and the sometimes ferocious effort it takes to balance them. At this book's center is a beautifully rendered relationship between a mother and daughter that's as complicated and memorable as any I've ever read. Here is a story told with grace, honesty, and remarkable spirit."
--Sara Corbett, New York Times bestselling coauthor of A House in the Sky

"Michelle Theall can really write. This is a little story packed with big issues and told with real mastery."
--Kelly Corrigan, New York Times bestselling author of The Middle Place

"Powerful down to the last page. This book shows the resilience of its author and the universal quest to belong at all costs."
--Julia Scheeres, New York Times bestselling author of Jesus Land
