Hello Everyone! I signed up for an account some time ago and said hello but never really participated. I'm back and looking forward to participating and learning from you all as well as getting to know you! My name is Melanie. I write Christian fiction and Christian romance novels. I've been writing fiction for as long as I can remember. As a child I would write out episodes of Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers that I wished I saw on the actual show, and would use coloring books to trace and include images to go with my story. Ha! I did a great deal of writing prior to my freshmen year of college and then it dwindled. I got back to writing again for about two years after I graduated. Once our son was born I found my writing took a back seat to just about everything else. Now that our son is 8 and our daughter is 3, I'm wanting to focus more on my writing. I have finished a Christian romance novel that is in the process of being edited and will be available on Amazon in August. While I'm waiting on that I've begun work on a trilogy. I have a LOT to learn and I look forward to becoming involved here!
