Melissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasn’t hoping for a career as a race car driver. Her love of books was instilled by her mother and grandparents who were avid readers. She’d often sneak books away from them so that she could fantasize about those strong alpha males and plucky heroines. In middle school and high school, Melissa used to write sappy love poems and shared them with her friends and still has those poems today! In college her writing changed to sarcastic musings on life as well as poems with a modern twist on fairy tales and won awards for her writing. You can find many of these musings along with her latest releases on her website and blog.

I had two books which were contracted at the same time with two different publishers but both closed shortly after signing the contract. Forever Love was the first one to get published (and then that publishing house closed, too. I felt jinxed). I've republished it three times in different incarnations since then. It remains very close to my heart because it was a very personal story of a girl in a small town who faced returning to a place she'd never felt welcomed.

I know my writing has grown since I wrote that story but it will always be special since it was about my hometown.(less)

This is a tough one. I like so many different couples and have found that as I age, who and what I like changes.

Right now, I'm very much enamored of Eve Dallas and her husband, Roarke. He's got looks, money and brains with a wonderful accent. She doesn't think she has much of anything until she looks in his eyes! I know we all have that one person who makes us feel like more...(less)

Revenge is a Treat #A-Wisp-of-Fate #Cover_Reveal

Picture What would you be willing to do for revenge? Would you lie? Steal? Kill? I have to admit that revenge is certainly something I think about. As an author, I've been known to write a person into a story, just so I could kill them. But would I be able to do it in real life? Probably not. But then again, nothing that bad has happened to me.

As a writer, Melissa likes to keep current on topics of interest in the world of writing. She's a member of the Romance Writers of America and is always interested in improving her writing through classes and seminars. Her current projects include her short story "Forever Love" published in the Valentine Anthology, Love, Again, on sale now as well as two books - Second Time's the Charm, set to be released on April 3rd and Protecting His Wolfe, set to be released June 3rd, both published through Rebel Ink Press this year.



Melissa doesn't believe in down time. She's always keeping busy. Melissa is a wife and mother, an elementary school teacher, a book reviewer, an editor for a publishing company as well as an author. Her home blends two families and is a lot like the Brady Bunch, without Alice - a large grocery bill, tons of dirty dishes and a mound of laundry. She loves to write stories that feature happy endings and is often seen plotting her next story.



Melissa loves hearing from readers!
