LUCASTA is, for all intents and purposes, a story about getting what you need versus getting what you think you need. The story set up is familiar—gorgeous younger sister (Camilla) and less attractive, but more interesting older sister (Lucasta) vying for the affections of the same man (Viscount Kennington). Unfortunately, through no fault of his own, the Viscount becomes less desirable as a potential mate for the popular Camilla, who if not happily spurns him at her mother's behest.

I write under the names of Melinda Hammond and Sarah Mallory.

I have been telling stories for as long as I can remember - many of them born of frustration when I was stuck in a classroom longing to be rescued! I love anything romantic, whether it is a grand opera or a beautiful painting. It doesn't necessarily have to be happy, as long as it is inspiring.

I was born in Bristol and grew up on Barton
