Jennifer Melzer

Biography

Jennifer Melzer spent the majority of her life as a writer denying she actually liked to write romance, only to wake up one morning and discover that every single tale she'd ever written had somehow revolved around the heart. She has since given into the whim, spinning yarns of love and firmly believing that everyone deserves a happy ending.

She lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her husband and daughter, but dreams nightly she is laying on the beach watching the stars fall over the Atlantic Ocean.

Who are your favorite authors?
Neil Gaiman, J.K. Rowling, Amy Tan, Liane Moriarty and Holly Black are just a few of my favorite authors. I have so many, it would be impossible to name them all.
