Melissa D. Ellis has spent the majority of her life focusing on music until she was sideswiped with the unexpected passion for writing.
Born February 12, 1977, she spent her early years in Hoopeston, Illinois. Her father was in news print and her mother was a dedicated full-time stay at home mom. By the age of 5, they moved south to Murfreesboro, TN and then relocated permanently to Crossville, TN when she was in Junior High.
The oldest of three girls, Melissa was very active in music and theater throughout high school, which paved the way for her to study the arts further in college - at Roane State Community College and then onto Tennessee Technological University.
An avid fan of horror and the supernatural, Melissa incorporates her dark and crafty stories with her current and past experiences, creating a realistic fusion of "other world" meets our world.
A full time author as well as musician, Melissa continues to make her home in the beautiful south (Tennessee) with her amazing two boys, Aidan and Ethan, their chocolate-mutt, Virgil, and black cat named Shadow (short for Shadow Shifter).
