I wanted to share with you today a little about myself and why I write the genre I do. I have lived in Arizona and Tennessee, but Arizona is my home. I have discovered wealth is not measured in how much money you have but in how much love you share.
I have been happily married to my wonderful husband, Tom for 24 years, and we have two remarkable children, Shaelee and Erik.
As a young child, I loved reading and writing. Many nights I would wrap up in a blanket, and daydream while I turned the exciting pages of a book. The books would take me to many places, but mostly to the 1800’s where I lived with the American Indian. I loved the idea of going from the normal world in which I lived, then instantly I would be taken to a place far away.
To my surprise, I started writing and creating my very own world. A place where I could go and lose myself with just a pen and paper.
I grew up with the fascination of the American Indian. My love for them grew by leaps and bounds as I read about them from my history book. I wanted to show, in my writings, of the proud people that the American Indians truly are. They show honor and respect for all living things. If I can capture just a small portion of that in my writings then that would be an added bonus for me.
Native American mystery and romance is my passion. I hope to reveal in my books the uniqueness of the American Indian. I feel truly blessed to try and reveal how special the American Indians truly are.
The love of my family and the love for the American Indian have become focal points in my stories. I will do my best for both of them.
I sincerely pray readers enjoy the characters that I bring to life on each turning page!!!!
I have received Cambridge Who’s Who twice, and I have published numerous articles in newspapers. I am a 911 dispatcher, which I truly love. My family is my life and when I am not writing, working, or sleeping, I spend my time with them.Well I hope you have learned some things about me and one special commenter will receive an autographed copy of my new book, Blood on the Feather.
BLOOD ON THE FEATHER by Melinda Elmore quickly pulls you into this Native American mystery. Archeologist DeShay Graywater finds much more than she is looking for on a dig on Lakota Sioux land. When detective TJ Hawke and FBI agent Melina Wolfe team up to investigate the murder of a young Sioux woman, much more than the case, and their shared past, present problems.
