B-CU Alumna Achieves Publishing Success

Dr. Michelle Donice

B-CU alumna Dr. Michelle Donice ('91) is enjoying critical success with the publishing of her first novel, "The Other Side of Through," which explores one woman's painful search for her sense of self against the backdrop of her crumbling marriage and an intense extramarital affair.

"I've been humbled by the reaction to the book," Donice said. "People have told me they've learned something from it by the themes of the book and how the characters had grown."

She continues to promote the book with appearances throughout the area and as far away as Illinois. For more information, visit her website at

"Being a B-CU graduate is something I always share," Donice said. "B-CU's a place that teaches you all dreams are possible. Being able to find a publisher and receive the response I've had, has reminded never to give up on my dreams."
