Although Melinda (who also writes as Mel Curtis) has lived in Georgia and Texas, she's a California girl at heart. Her earliest memories are of life on an isolated 50-acre sheep ranch in rural Sonoma County, California. Picture rolling hills covered in brown grass, a eucalyptus forest, a long gravel driveway lined with plump sheep and no sidewalks. It was a big deal to drive into town on a one-lane road in a ramshackle, bubble-fendered pickup for an ice cream.

Flash forward to this century. Melinda lives in California's hot central valley with her husband - her basketball playing college sweetheart. With three kids, the couple has done the soccer thing, the karate thing, the dance thing, the Little League thing and, of course, the basketball

I love writing sweet romance for Harlequin and I love writing romantic comedy. My newest release (out Monday 10/23/17) combines the two in 1st person point of view.

Part of a series of stories about seven friends returning home at the request of their choir teacher, Rumor Has It In Christmas Falls is fun and heartwarming. All 7 books are going live at the same time. Read my full-length sweet ro... Read more of this blog post »
