About the Author

Hello, and welcome to my blog!

My name is Melissa and I am, among other things, a writer of fantasy novels. I live in Central Ohio on a small homestead with my critters, I work in IT for my ‘day job’, and I have a soft spot for simple living. My first three novels are part of an ongoing series of women’s paranormal fiction. Set in northern Michigan, the story revolves around a woman whose life is thrown into chaos over first, the loss of her mother, then to the transition to her new home and supernatural aspects of her inheritance which she struggles to understand. The Keeper of the Woods is the first installment in the Melanie Haswell series. To date, there are three complete works with a fourth currently in development.
