Bookbabe (also known as Michele) was a U.S. author of spanking stories. Most of her work was M/F, some was F/M. She was a regular poster on alt.sex.spanking and later on the soc.sexuality.spanking newsgroup. She was a very active poster, and had made many Internet friends via these newsgroups. Many of her stories expressed vigorous sexuality.
She was the organizer of the Summer Story Contest in 1999.
Michele died on 28 December 2003 of cancer. Several SSS posters have undertaken annual charity runs in her memory. "Bookbabe" was her scene name, referring to her literary interests. "Michele" appears to have been her real (legal) first name.
