The authors, Melinda and Nicole, met in 2005 when the two learned that Nicole’s husband and Melinda were actually long lost cousins. Without knowing it, the cousins had been born and raised not far from each other in upstate New York and had moved to the state of Georgia at approximately the same time. On August 1, 2009, after having just finished reading the Twilight saga and with their level of creativity at an all time high, Melinda and Nicole began sharing ideas about what the ultimate romance novel might be like and by the end of the night, on a piece of purple construction paper, they had created a character list and the basic outline of the plot for this book. What began on that simple piece of purple construction paper became The Lure of The Moon, an Amazon best seller. A large part of The Dance of the Ocean was completed in Georgia then was written simultaneously in two time zones with Melinda living in Georgia and Nicole now living in California.
Nicole Gulla was born and raised in the village of Yorkville just outside of Utica, New York. In 2002 she met the man who is now her husband and not long after she graduated from Whitesboro Senior High School, together they moved to Georgia and lived there for almost ten years. Just shortly after she had received a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Troy University and while co-writing The Dance of the Ocean, Nicole and her family moved to Sacramento, California. In addition to being a writer, Nicole is an environmental and consumer rights activist who enjoys traveling, yoga, reading, drinking various blends of tea, dousing everything with Tabasco and spending time with her family and friends.
