Melissa used to tell everyone she was going to be a writer when she grew up. Well, she is suddenly a grown up and it looks like she was telling the truth.

Living in a modern-day "Yours, Mine and Ours" household, Melissa is the biological mother of 3 children and the full-time stepmother to her husbands 2 children. On some days, she may even be considered "evil"...and not just as the stepmother!

With a strange vampire fascination since she was young, it was only natural that Melissa began writing stories about the Paranormal.

She is currently co-authoring a Paranormal Romance trilogy with fellow writer Nicole Andrews Moore called "The Dark Redemption Series". Book 1 is due out in June 2013.

Melissa Brodsky Here's what one of the reviews says about Hallows Haven: "I love this book, its like a female version of Harry Potter, but almost better. The way the author paints her details, and background information of her characters, cities, and her plot captures you, reels you in, and only tosses you back into reality when the book ends." On sale through Monday for only .99! Currently in the top 100 of two fantasy genres!
