I’m Melanie. I’m a New York Times & USA Today Bestseller. I write steamy paranormal romance, paranormal romantic comedy (more like snarky, vulgar witches), and sexy contemporary romance. I live in Wisconsin (where we are still buried in snow and freezing) with my husband, son, two doggos, three cats, and thirtyish chickens. In addition to the zoo at home, my husband and I have four grown kiddos, and one grandbaby.
I’m originally from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, but moved to Chicago for work in early 2000. Don’t tell anyone, but I used to be a total IT Geek. Certificates and all! I met my husband when he was finishing up his 21 year tour in the US Navy. Somehow, he talked me in to moving to Wisconsin when he retired. I think it had something to do with the proposal, and the promise of loving me forever. It was my own HEA!
Anyway, I’m supposed to share one of my crafty type things with you guys, so here goes. Try not to be too brutal. I’m not into a whole lotta crafts, but I do love to paint!
One of my favorite crafts is painting. Our family camps a lot in the summer, and I’m always on the look out for relaxing activities after full days of swimming and hiking. We have a permanent camp site on the serene Door County Peninsula in Wisconsin. When we go camping, I like to take all of my painting supplies and paint for hours on end. This beautiful dark fairy is one of my creations from last summer.
Tell me in the comments what kind of crafts you all like to do? What are some of your hobbies?
My other hobbies include: cooking, baking, spending lots of time with my family, traveling, and of course, reading.
Right now I’m reading (for the second time around) the Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris. I’m not sure that I can say I have a favorite book or series. I love to read, just about any genre, though I usually go paranormal by default. There’s something about hotties of the fanged variety!
