Meeting Melissa

I normally avoid romances, but the premise of this book caught my attention. The author does a great job of making us care about the characters.

About the Author

I’m a Native American writer, born and raised in and around San Antonio. Now I live in the heart of Texas. My passions are God, my family and telling lies. That’s what fiction writers do, right? We create books and then spoon feed them to our readers and hope that they get so caught up in the characters and stories that they believe the lie. And, maybe, for a brief period of time, they forget about life for a while.I love reading, and I love watching movies. When reading a book, I expect it to come alive for me on the pages; unraveling much like a movie in my mind. When I write, I try to take the movie in my mind and put it onto the page. I wrote two of the novels I’ve released, in the 1980’s, as books and then turned them into screenplays in the 90’s when I got the bug to write feature-length film scripts. Then they were rewritten last year back into the books currently offered online. The basic outline of the manuscripts stayed the same, but everything else was rewritten to be more relevant to the last twenty years.I love to write. I have since I was a teenager, and have never stopped. I wrote very little after 2000 because I began catering. For seventeen years, I owned my own catering business, which we sold in 2015. Then, with the encouragement of my husband and one of our closest friends, another Central Texas author, I picked up the pen, dusted off the manuscripts and began again. And I haven’t stopped!For thirty-plus years, these characters have been hounding me and haunting me, and it’s time they got out of my head and onto the blank page. It’s time they wrote their stories! And it’s time for you to read them. I wish you laughter, and I wish you tears. Because if I bring out those emotions and more, then, and only then, will I be a successful writer.And, this is only the beginning…
