Interview with Melissa Alexander

Describe your desk
Messy! While I wish it was clean, it is typically covered with my kid's homework or papers. Every day I have to move their things aside so I can write.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in South Carolina and have lived in the South for the majority of my life. I currently use Atlanta as the city my book takes place since I live there.
When did you first start writing?
2015. I have always wanted to write but never took the leap. In the fall of 2015, I decided to give it a try and It Started with You was the end result.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to tell a story and express myself.
What are you working on next?
I am working on a follow up novel of It Started with You. It will be the story of one of the secondary characters and you still get to see Alex and Carson in the second book.
Who are your favorite authors?
Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood, Lynsay Sands just name a few.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My family and the gym!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spend most of time with my family and working out.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I look different blogs and goodreads for suggestions.
