Melanie was born and raised in Utah by a loving LDS family. She attended Dixie Collage and the University of Phoenix where she received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management. She also has a Postgraduate Certificate in Conflict Resolution and Negotiation from the University of Utah. One summer she got a part time job as a Student Intern for the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office. She never left. She is currently assigned to the Special Operations Division and is part of the support staff for the SWAT team. She responds on call-outs and mans the radio in the SWAT command post. She is also on the logistics team of the Child Abduction Response Team. In addition she works closely with Search & Rescue, the Mounted Posse, K9 and the Motor Unit. She has always had an adventurous spirit and has been sky-diving and rappelling. She owns an ATV, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and several guns.
For years Melanie has used her creative writing skills for office related tasks such as awards programs and web content. Working a forty plus hour week, attending college, and spending time with family left little time for anything else. Then one day, she decided it was time to start writing for fun again. Hopefully you will enjoy reading about these exciting new worlds as much as she enjoyed writing about them.
