How The Silver Lights Series Came About
Michelle Lynn was born to storytell, act, and inspire. From the time she wrote her first short story at age 9 to her freelance writing jobs and her days of performing in figure skating competitions, something in her intuition told her she was destined to be center stage. It wasn’t until she moved to the Big Apple to pursue her dreams of acting that her life started to crumble before her own eyes. She struggled in every aspect including paying bills, juggling three jobs, and finding her happy place in a lonely city that left her with a rotten flavor. Her taste for the Big Apple soon began to rot away the dreams she had of becoming a Hollywood Star.
She felt defeated in every way, and it wasn’t until one day during an audition, the casting manager deliberately skipped over her for the leading role, instead he told her, “You should just focus your efforts on being an “extra”, because your credentials are weak.” It was this experience that drove Michelle to change her destiny by putting her conquest to paper.
When she departed the “City of Dreams” to embark on a new path while mourning the loss of her beloved sister, Laurie, she was able to receive clairvoyant messages from the other side, giving her faith that one day she would reach her childhood dreams. The deeper she explored her spiritual journey, she began to feel lighter, brighter, and uplifted. The rejection began to fade into darkness, as the light of her clairvoyance became her compass to push her in the direction of her god given talent as a storyteller and actress. It was after publishing her food and lifestyle books, her clairvoyance pushed her closer to her dreams by guiding her in writing The Silver Lights Series.
As of early September 2023, Michelle has received over 177 awards between her film, writing and acting. Her short film “An Ever After Drama” has received 94 awards, including 31 for best actress. Her film has received over 100 film nominations.
In addition, she has won over 69 screenplay awards and two of her feature screenplays are finalists in the world renowned Paramount Film Festival. Michelle continues to focus on her crafts in writing, acting and filmmaking with her motion picture company, Silver Lights Studios, founded with the production of her first short film in December 2022.
In her free time, she paints for The Michelle Lynn Brand, advocates for healthy living and models swimsuits, travels to tropical climates, practices hot yoga, cooks, works out, attends red carpet events, and charity events. Overall, she credits her faith and her guidance from the spiritual world to reconnecting her back to her destiny and god given gifts as an award winning writer, actress, and filmmaker.
