A retired crime scene/lab technician, Melanie now spends time reading Pride and Prejudice variations, making jewelry, and most importantly, spending time with her family, human and furry. Melanie has lived in the Salt Lake area of Utah for nearly 30 years, after being born and raised in central Illinois.
Adopted a handsome dog and cute little kitty in September of 2012, 2 days after receiving my first ever royalties check. Of course, the handsome puppy is Mr Darcy, and the kitty is Lizzy. Darcy is being trained as her service dog, as a mobility assistance dog.
Melanie has a Bachelor's degree in Criminalistics with a minor in Photography.
Melanie was invited to post on DarcyandLizzy.com, and is now an author there. She is also a member of Austen Authors and can be found on Good reads as an author. Her blog is http://www.melschertz.com
