Melanie writes edgy teen romances that blur genres and cross boundaries. Not afraid to explore themes like identity and mental illness, she blends real-life issues with twisted realities and supernatural elements, leaving her readers to determine exactly what is real and what isn't. This is Young Adult storytelling at its most dark and twisted.
Melanie is a proud member of the Romance Writers of Australia, and her current work in progress, Copycat, was a finalist in the 2021 Publishing Basics competition.
"The author is particularly skilled at weaving in backstory and evoking setting. Characterisation is well established through skillful use of dialogue, inner monologue and juxtaposition."
