Melinda Collins lives in North Carolina with her new baby girl, freakishly tall husband, and two adorable-but-unruly black cats.

Growing up in the south with an imaginary friend meant Melinda relied on herself for entertainment. And that's when the bug for making up stories--ones that don’t get her into trouble--bit her in the ass in the gnarliest way. From there she grew to love the paranormal and fantasy worlds.


Melinda writes paranormal romance and urban fantasy. No matter the story, you can place your bets that the words were driven by a badass rock-filled playlist.

Deborah Harkness
“These days vampires gravitated toward particle accelerators, projects to decode the genome, and molecular biology. Once they had flocked to alchemy, anatomy, and electricity. If it went bang, involved blood, or promised to unlock the secrets of the universe, there was sure to be a vampire around.”
Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches

Deborah Harkness
“Yes, I see that you are behaving like a prince but that doesn't mean you won't behave like a devil at the first opportunity.”
Deborah Harkness, A Discovery of Witches

Deborah Harkness
“Be yourself-- Matthew Clairmont. Complete with your sharp vampire teeth and your scary mother, your test tubes full of blood and your DNA, your infuriating bossiness and your maddening sense of smell.”
Deborah Harkness

“I am cursed with a terminal case of curiosity," he said. "I am jealous, selfish, acquisitive, territorial and possessive. I have a terrible temper, and I know I can be a cruel son of a bitch." He cocked his head. "I used to eat people, you know.”
Thea Harrison, Dragon Bound

“A dragon just gave me a piece of jewelry,” she said. She took another swig and handed the bottle back to Graydon. “Have I been added to his hoard?”

He shook his head and drank too. “No, cupcake,” he said. “I’m pretty sure you’ve replaced it.”
Thea Harrison, Dragon Bound
