Melissa Miles grew up all around the Southeast as a "red-headed preacher's kid" so it is hard to hurt her feelings! She has a Bachelor's degree in Nursing from The Medical University of South Carolina in the beautiful city of Charleston. She worked as a neonatal and pediatric ICU nurse in Charleston and Atlanta before taking some time off to be a full time mom. While living in Germany, she earned her Masters Degree in Education and taught school for 5 years, both in Germany and back in Georgia.
Currently Melissa is following a life long dream of writing. Her first book, This She'll Defend draws upon many of the wonderful experiences her own family had in their beautiful adopted country of Germany. She hopes to have many more novels on the way, including some for young readers.
She lives in Georgia with her husband of 24 years and is the proud mom of two wonderful young adults.
