Michele is supposed to wait tables at the cafe, but she spends too much time filling salt and pepper shakers, napkin holders and ketchup bottles. She says she doesn't want to get her perfectly-folded hankie mussed up, but she's really eavesdropping on the customer's conversations without having to talk to them. That way, she makes up their stories herself and doesn't have to bother with facts. In her spare time she writes mysteries and light vampire romance with a Hollywood gossip twist, talks to her cat, Djinn, and watches the squirrels on the freeway fence in her Sacramento backyard.
