What can I say about this lovely lady?
She is a New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author.
Her books are fun, flirty, adventurous and HOT!
They feature sexy alpha males and strong women who can bring them to their knees.
She has a plethora of fans who are always eagerly awaiting every new release she has.
And I am lucky to call her my friend.
Through reading her books, she has reignited my spark and passion for both reading and writing about love and romance.
Melody has been full or support and encouragement on my journey into the writing world. She was also more than happy to answer a few questions for me and I am thrilled to be able to share them with you.
EF – What or who inspired you to start writing?
MA – I have always loved writing, but I got serious about it a few years ago because I was only working part-time and needed to change my life. My mother inspired me to love romance, and my daughter made me believe in myself. I love my family and all the support they give!
EF – Can you describe how you felt when you published your first book? Did you have doubts or regrets?
MA – No doubts, but pure terror. I was so afraid no one would want to read what I was writing. I was awed and humbled by the positive response I received! Absolutely zero regrets. This has been the greatest ride of my life.
EF – Are you a planner or a pantser?
MA – Haha, love it!! I’m both. Some things I take by the seat of my pants, and others I have to plan down to the smallest of details.
EF – You have 4 different series. Do you have a favourite and why?
MA – No. I love them all for different reasons. I do have to say that the Anderson’s will always be close to my heart because they were the first.
EF – Do you have any particular rituals that you do before, during or after writing a book?
MA – No. I’m actually a pretty boring person. I sit down and come up with a plan, then talk to my friends about possible situations I can put my characters through and then get busy.
EF – Is there anything particular that you do if you get stuck writing a scene?
MA – Yes. I read some books, watch romantic movies, go to the mall and watch people. I love romance because there are examples of things I can do all over the place.
EF – If you could team up with any other author and write a book with them, who would it be?
MA – Oh, that is way too hard of a question for me to answer. There are so many great authors I would love to pair up with. Ruth Cardello, Kathleen Brooks, Jennifer Probst, Nora Roberts, and on and on and on….
EF – Your latest release, Scorched, is the 4th and final book in this series. How did you feel when you finished writing it?
MA – I’m always a little bit sad when a series ends. But as I tell my fans, never say never to the ending of a series!
EF – What project are you currently working on?
MA – I’m working on the next Tycoon book, and also the next Anderson book, along with a brand new series. I have some major announcements for you all in a few weeks!! I can’t wait!
EF – What one piece of advice would you like to have known when you first published?
MA – Edit!!! Oh my gosh, I wish I would have had my 2 amazing editors from the beginning. It would have saved me so much pain.
And just to finish….5 quick questions!
EF – Who, out of your heroes, would you like to a) Get frisky with? & b) Marry?
MA – Mmm, dang that’s hard. I would probably love to get frisky with Chad. There is nothing sexier to me than a man in uniform. I would marry each and every one of them. After all, I’ve created my idea of the perfect man in my head with each and every one of these guys.
EF – What is your favourite snack food to munch on while writing?
MA – Oh so many things. When I’m being good, I’d have to say popcorn. When I’m not, it would have to be white chocolate Twix bars!
EF – Your favourite activity to do when you aren’t writing?
MA – Sex! Just teasing. Sitting back and watching episodes of Bones, or reading a great book! Also hanging out with my kids.
EF – Name one place you would like to visit?
MA – Hmmm, I don’t know. There are lots of places I look forward to going, but I’m not much of a traveler. I love home the best!
EF – Tell us one thing about you that few people would know?
MA – I am a total nerd. I love sitting in my house in sweats with a great coffee and wearing zero makeup. I am also pretty open and honest with my fans so there isn’t a lot that people don’t know about me.
