Melanie has enjoyed writing from a young age. Her brothers and her used to watch Chip 'N Dale Rescue Rangers when they were kids. She would write episodes that she wanted to see, and then she would trace images from coloring books and arrange them the way she wanted to create the illustrations for her books. This later turned into writing a couple of scripts for episodes she wanted to see on Star Trek: The Next Generation or Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Nothing really came of them, but they were great practice and a lot of fun for her to write.
Her love for writing progressed from there. She wrote a lot of short stories and a science fiction novel that she still intends to go back and polish up some day. She began writing romance in her early college years. Once she realized how hard it was to find romance novels that had good stories and were clean, she decided that's what she was going to focus on.
She lives in Texas with her wonderful husband who also happens to be her best friend. They have two children (13 and 8). Her family is truly an inspiration to her. She feels blessed that she is able to stay at home with their children and that they are able to homeschool their daughter - an adventure all on its own!
When she is not writing, she enjoys reading, crocheting, photography, baking, watching TV and movies. She is also an advocate for her son, who has autism and epilepsy. Infertility and endometriosis are other topics that are close to her heart.
