Born to an Air Force family at an Army hospital, Melissa has always been a little screwy. She was further warped by her years of watching Monty Python movies and her strange family.
From the time she read To Kill a Mockingbird in the seventh grade, she dreamed of being a writer. After years of struggling, trying to write short stories filled with angst, she finally listened to her college writing instructor, and allowed her natural comedic voice to shine through. She counts Jayne Ann Krentz, Jenny Crusie, Stephanie Laurens, Julia Quinn, and Lori Foster as influences in her writing.
Within a year of her first release, Melissa had 13 more short stories, novellas, and novels published, including her Eppie nominated book, The Hired Hand and continues to top the charts at fictionwise.com on a regular basis.
In the beginning of her second year of publication, she will branch out into historical romance as well as continue to write erotic romance in several genres, continuing her popular Bounty Hunters, Inc and Sweet Shoppe series.
She is a military wife and mother to two military brats and an adopted dog daughter, and lives wherever the military sticks them. Which, she is sure, will involve heat and bugs only seen on the Animal Discovery Channel. In her spare time, she reads, cooks, reads, travels, reads some more, and dreams of living somewhere the bugs die in the winter.
