Melissa Kate is a self confessed book-a-holic who lives in a small town along the coast in sunny South Africa. She writes contemporary romance with quirky characters and witty banter; a true romantic at heart, she loves the moment of falling in love. Her pet Beagle and maniacal lovebird keep her company while writing and often inspire senseless moments in her stories.

When she’s not furiously tapping away on her laptop, Melissa can be found laughing away with her husband (who happens to be her pre-school sweetheart... you just know there's a story there) or scouring online stores for additions to her ever growing stiletto collection (ehm addiction).

She balances her day job and conjuring up new romantic tales with a local personal blog with a

I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. Love in the Fast Lane was a standalone story and unfortunately there will not be any follow ups from that book. However the Crystal Valley series is currently out and you get two stories out of that stories - I promise, it's a real laugh out loud kind of book.(less)

Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to read Waiting for You.

To answer your Qs....

Lots of things inspire me, sometimes its a music video or a movie. In Adam's case, I just always wanted to write about a Navy SEAL and Audrey came to life - who doesn't love a strong independent woman?

I spend a lot of time researching. It varies each time but enough efforts needs to be put it to make your story sound authentic. Writing about serving your country and not truly understanding what that means can very easily translate to the reader and that just shows lack of commitment to the story.

Crystal Valley is totally fictional :)

Thanks for your Questions! Hope you enjoy the next one and look out for Oliver and Emma's story coming soon!(less)
