After graduating from The University of Sheffield with an English Literature Masters in 2003, Melanie has been writing fiction - time permitting - ever since.
'Hope's Daughter', released in December 2011, was Melanie's debut novel and the first release from The Ambrosia Sequence, a YA dystopian series. The companion book 'The Rainbow Maker's Tale' was released in late 2013. Most recently, Melanie has been working on a children's series, releasing 'Faris and Jack' and then 'Faris and the Monoceros' in early 2018.
Melanie's latest project - due in late 2018 - is 'Cirque de la Nuit' a stand-alone YA paranormal novel, before she returns to completing The Ambrosia Sequence, with three further books.
When she's not writing Melanie enjoys the wet weather of the north of England with her dogs or disappearing into a book for a few hours (no surprise there then).
