When Technical Analyst; Michelle Cox was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last summer, she did not give up or fall into a depression.

Bethlehem, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/25/2016 -- Instead, she turned the diagnosis into a wakeup call to pursue her dream to make a difference as a children's book author.

Michelle started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the publishing of her book with the hopes of igniting a love of reading and technology at a young age. Their is nine days left for the Kickstarter campaign to be fully funded. Michelle, The Computer Lady is requesting all Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Caregivers and the Village that will be purchasing Books for summer reading to please purchase those books today. These Children's Books are for Kids ages 4 to 10 years old. Reading to your Children creates an emotional bond and lifelong positive memories.

As a Computer Technical Analyst and Tech Writer by day, Michelle fuses her technological and writing skills to enhance and create technical training documents.

In her latest personal project, Michelle uses her background to write for a completely different audience- Children, the future generation of technical professionals.

With her first book, "Mommy, is the Computer Smarter than Me?" Michelle, The Computer Lady, said she hopes that her book will have a positive effect, "especially in the lives of children, as they are full of wonder and are little sponges seeking information."

Michelle, TCL was inspired to write while she was recovering from surgery.

Michelle, TCL explains, "I had my epiphany as I was at home healing and contemplating my life and how long I might have to live. With cancer, the average life expectancy is five years and that's if you catch it early and respond to the treatments. With this knowledge, my desire has become to leave this world a little better place to live and perform work that makes a positive contribution to our lives."
