is an author, designer, photographer, and flight attendant all rolled into one.
She has told stories all her life and finds her passion in sharing the plots
that spin through her head. She now lives in Portland, Oregon, with her two
dachshund-chihuahua dogs. She loves the beauty of the Pacific Northwest that
feeds her imagination.

When no one is listening, Melanie loves to belt Broadway songs in her living

The journey draws Eridale deeper into the conflict between the Empire and the
rebel Freedom Fighters, producing questions about Eridale’s heritage, questions

6.   I’m
the youngest of six, and I have 20 nieces and nephews.

7.   I
can’t fall asleep watching TV.

8.   I
hate dusting more than I hate cleaning the bathroom.

9.   My sense of smell
doesn’t work very well. I’ve only smelled 10 things in my entire life.

10. I wish we could dress up in costumes at least once a
month. I love playing dress-up. I think that’s why I loved doing theater in
high school and college.
