I'm Melanie. I wear pajamas all day and write funny books because I've already been an adult and it was just awful.

Please note: Author not exactly as shown here with makeup/perfect lighting/airbrushing.



To create wildly fun, ridiculously romantic escapes for anyone who needs to laugh, feel good, and forget about life for a few hours. After all, laughter is the best medicine. Well, other than medicine, that is. 

what's new...


'Twas the Text Before Christmas...

One broke young New Yorker raising her five-year-old neice. 

One powerful billionaire with no time to shop for gifts.


When life throws these two together, there just might be a Christmas miracle in store.

MISTLE TEXT (An Accidentally in Love Story, Book 5)



Paradise Bay BOOK 4

A ridiculously romantic, laugh-out-loud tale of reluctant homecomings, lost loves, and second chances.

what's next...


It’s hate at first text. Or is it...?

One single woman who always falls for Mr. Wrong.. 

One contractor who is more than he appears to be.

A mix-up has her texting the guy she hates instead of the one she wants to date. By the time she figures out who she's really texting, it just might be too late for her heart...

GR scares the shit out of me so I only pop on when I have a paper bag handy to breathe into while I do whatever I have to do there as fast as humanly possible, then log the hell off before I see a nasty review of one of my babies, I mean stories.)
