Story is my happy place. I grew up reading all the books I could get my hands on and at some point, my brain decided that maybe making them up would be fun too. It was right. I’ve dabbled in a few genres but it turns out fantasy and urban fantasy are where my heart lies. I love writing books about strong heroines who discover their powers, their path, and their person (yep, there’s kissing). So if magic, adventure, and a happy ever after are your thing, you’re in the right place.
I write as M.J. and Melanie, but most people call me Mel. My latest was The Rebel’s Prize, the final book of the Daughter of Ravens trilogy. Next up is Wicked Ways, Book 5 in the TechWitch series. In 2024, I’ll be starting a new romantasy/romantic fantasy series, The Dragon Forged series. Also in 2024, I’m re-releasing all my romances, The Shattered Court and the Half-Light City series.
