Melissa Volker


Melissa Volker's debut novel, Delilah of Sunhats Swans received a Five Star Review from Reader's Favorites and was praised by Alice Fulton, Guggenheim Fellow Poet, who said, " a charmer, a being blessed with a charisma as mysterious as it is luminous. You won't soon forget her." It was followed by a collection of short stories and a novella, a life undone. She recently won Words and Brushes third Collaborative Competition with her short story, Truths, which can be found on their website.

The Thirteenth Moon was her first middle-grade, fantasy adventure novel and garnered her the description of "…a combination of C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling". The Sequel, A Council of Elders will be released in the summer of 2017. Volker then delved into the YA genre with a slipstream/soft scifi novel, Anabelle Lost and a magical realism novella, HIDDEN, each due out in April 2017.

Readers have described her writing as "beautiful, descriptive language", "lyrical, lilting and poignant" with "characters you connect with and care about"
