Melanie is a new-to-the-block Christian author. Her newest unpublished work recently shortlisted for the "In The Beginning Award" and received "Runner Up" during the Word Guild Awards Ceremony in 2018.

Her work explores real Historical events of the 12th - 17th century and ties it into a Fairytale Retelling.

She writes in the YA, Middle Grade and Children's Genre's with words that are saturated in God's unchanging hope. She catapults the reader into the 12th - 17th century and breaths life into the fairytales you already know and love!

Her writing focuses on real-life issues, stemming from the heart, touching the soul and encouraging the reader to step closer in their relationship with Jesus.
