Melody Calder is a multi-trope romance author who has been creating stories and imaginary worlds since she was a small child pretending to read her mother's romance books. After winning a state competition for her poetry in middle school, her English teacher encouraged her to become an author. Though she put her dream on hold to raise a family, she is making up for it now with creative and captivating stories. Her mind is always full of interesting characters and plot twists. She not-so-secretly loves cliffhangers but tries not to do that to her readers too often. She lives in a small suburb in the Midwest with her husband, three children, grandson, and lab puppy. She loves traveling the U.S. with her family on long road trips and dabbles in arts and crafts when she is not writing.
