Melissa McClone’s degree in mechanical engineering
from Stanford University led her to a job with a major
airline where she travelled the globe and met her husband.
But analyzing jet engine performance couldn’t compete
with her love of writing happily ever afters. Her first
full-time writing endeavor was her first sale when she was
pregnant with her first child! Since then, she has published
over twenty-five romance novels with Harlequin and been
nominated for Romance Writers of America’s RITA award.
When she isn’t writing, she’s usually driving
her minivan to/from her children’s swim and soccer
practices, 4-H meetings and dog shows. She also supports
deployed service members through Soldiers’ Angels and
fosters cats through a local non-kill rescue shelter.
Melissa lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband,
three school-aged children, two spoiled Norwegian Elkhounds
and cats who think they rule the house.
