Melody has been creating stories and imaginary worlds since she was a small child pretending to read her mother’s romance books. After winning a state competition for her poetry in middle school, her English teacher encouraged her to become an author. She lives in a small suburb in the Midwest with her husband, three children, and dog – aptly named Dragon. She loves traveling the U.S. with her family on long road trips and dabbles in arts and crafts when she is not writing.
