Melody Jackson


Melody Jackson is a young “crazy dragon lady” and a lover of all things geek. She resides in the rainy state of Oregon with too many books and not enough time to write (or read) them all. When she’s not spinning the tales in her head into stories, she can be found working undercover at a grocery store or gathering intel for her next stories, and food for the dragons.

Dragons need pizza too, you know?

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on a sequel to "The Dragon Within", though it doesn't have a name yet. It will be connected to the first book, but will also stand alone, so you won't be confused if you don't read "The Dragon Within" first (though I definitely recommend reading both of them, as there will be correlation that will make more sense if you read both books.)
Who are your favorite authors?
Donita K Paul, definitely. Her DragonKeeper chronicles are actually what inspired me to write a novel about dragons.
I also love pretty much anything by Ted Dekker, especially his book Outlaw. That book was just...beyond words. Incredible. :)
Also, Suzanne Collins, J K Rowling and Rick Riordan are phenomenal writers, and their styles are different enough from mine that I don't accidentally steal their ideas, haha.
