About Melinda Jasmine Crouchley

I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. I earned an English BA from Portland State University with a Technical Writing minor. My current line of work is marketing and communications with educational institutions and nonprofits. I enjoy telling stories that benefit communities and make a difference.

I served two terms of National Service (AmeriCorps) and coordinated programs for five years, where the idea of mandatory national service was often discussed. It became the background and initial concept behind my first book "Metal Heart." What would a world look like where youth were forced to serve?

I've participated in the Nanowrimo challenge 2011-2017 and successfully completed two novels: "Metal Heart" and the sequel, "Tin Road." This year I am working on the third and final novel, "Iron Curtain."

I am a science fiction and comic book geek - spending my free time crafting costumes and attending comic book conventions. I love reading books and writing them.

This book is a great read and draws you right in. I enjoyed it tremendously and am looking forward to the sequel. Something for everyone, many genres are found within. Highly recommend it!

Currently only published in epub, I had to convert it so I could read it on my Kindle.

Several of the plot points pivot on events that would be unlikely in a military and/or commercial dictatorship regime. This makes the book only average.

But it has lots of action, and if it was a movie would probably do very well.

I love it !

It's like Katniss Everdeen was captured by the Galra, and sent back the earth of Mad Max + Blade Runner to be the first X-Man!

Congratulations: Wouldn't call it a page turner yet, but as of now you managed to keep me going for 3 chapters, instead of the more customary 3 pages. Like the mystery.

In case you're interested in a more detailed feedback, please don't hesitate to contact me.
