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 possibly chocolate. 🙂
Although I’ve been addicted to reading since I was three, 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, and was tempted to give up writing just as often. No one told me that being a published author is a love-hate relationship, or that it means so much more than simply writing. But in the end, my love for the written word has prevailed.
I try to be a well-rounded author, and I write humorous romance and tension-filled thrillers with the same enthusiasm for my craft.
On October 25th 2018 I became the first Romanian who is a USA Today bestselling author.
During my journey I’ve also discovered my passion for cover design, and now I indulge my creativity further by working as a professional graphic artist on my website, CoveredByMelinda.com.
