Melinda Harris was born and raised in the great state of Georgia. She adores living in the South, and although she lives for road trips, she has no plans to abandon her Southern roots any time soon.
She graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Economics - don't ask - and she now resides just outside of Atlanta with her loving husband, adorable son and a very grumpy Beagle named, Herschel.
Melinda is the youngest of four, and she loves and admires her siblings, just as a baby sister should. Her family is extremely large and extremely loud, but she wouldn't have it any other way.
Forever a hopeless romantic, Melinda first knew she had it bad when her imaginary love affairs between Ken and Barbie rivaled the best of plot lines on her Nanny's soap operas. Many moons later, while on maternity leave with her son, she finally found the courage to put one of those fantasies down on paper. And within a few short months, her first novel was born.
Melinda is still new to the world of writing, but she is certain she will always be humbled by the idea of anyone - excluding her mom, of course - wanting to read her books. However, she has become quite addicted to writing and the happy escape it provides, so she can only hope a few readers will enjoy her stories too. Because like her Southern roots, Melinda doesn't plan to abandon her new happy place any time soon.
