Hi there! I’m Melinda, and if you’re visiting my website it means we already have three things in common: books, irresistible heroes, and chocolate. 🙂
Although I’ve been addicted to reading since I was three and my mom taught me to read, it took me a while to figure out I wanted to become a writer myself. I have a Law degree I rarely use, an aging background as a journalist, and in my teens I was a professional target shooter for a decade. At twenty-four I began writing my first novel, as therapy to find my way during a tough, crucial part of my life. When it was immediately snatched by an American publisher, I knew that was it. I was born a writer — even if I hadn’t known it yet.
Since then, I’ve learned, I’ve grown, I’ve tried and failed countless times, but in the end my love for the written word proved to be indestructible. I’ve also discovered my deep passion for graphic design, when I was too broke to afford a cover artist and my wonderful husband helped me master Photoshop.
So now I weave stories in several genres, which include suspense romance, romantic comedies, contemporary romance, and more. I’m also working on my first thriller series, and indulge my creativity further by helping other authors through my website, coveredbymelinda.com. Always an art addict, I do my best to instill depth and color into my stories, build my unique voice as an author, and I love to connect with book lovers all over the world.
My books are easy to find, as am I. Follow me, message me, say hi, and if you read any of my books, please leave a review on amazon.com. I’d love to hear from you!
