I have been an author since the age of fourteen and write  novels that incorporate a variety of different genres, including  historical fiction, suspense, thrillers with a supernatural twist, and dark fantasy. I am also a classically trained soprano/violinist/pianist and have been performing since the age of three. Additionally, I hold a BA in Management and an MBA in Marketing.

If I had not decided to become a writer, I would have become a marine biologist, but after countless years spent watching  Shark Week, I realized I am very attached to my arms and legs and would rather write sharks into my stories than get up close and personal with those toothy wonders.

Melika Lux added a status update: Guys, I am in shock! I just received the 2nd round of mockups for the cover of my new book, and I am FLOORED by how in sync my designer is with my vision. I feel like she dove into my head and extracted the characters from my imagination. They look EXACTLY how I pictured them!

Hoping to be able to reveal the cover to you soon! :D

“There was something in her eyes that made me trust her. Maybe it was because they held the same cynicism, the same world-weariness I saw in my own every morning when I looked at myself in the mirror.”
Melika Dannese Lux, Corcitura

“A lot of things should have been, Zigmund, but they aren’t. Are you going to be miserable about the things you cannot change, or do something about the things you can?”
Melika Dannese Lux, Corcitura

“He was mocking me. I could see his mouth beginning to lift in a maddening smirk, a smile that was half sardonic and half secretive, as if the fate of the world depended on the answer to a riddle only he knew and would never share.”
Melika Dannese Lux, Corcitura

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Catherine of Siena

“I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.”
Frederick Douglass

“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Winston S. Churchill, Never Give In!: The Best of Winston Churchill's Speeches

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
Oscar Wilde
