I’m a professional thrifter who is happily married, the father of four children, and an avid runner. I was born and raised in Georgia, and spent time in Oklahoma, California, Connecticut, and then Oregon, as an adult. I’m a graduate of Oregon State University and now reside in North Georgia, raising my family, near family.

My first book, The Earth Bleeds Red, was released in 2013. I took a few years off from writing to start my own business, and my second book, The Lights Will Never Fade, came out in Jan 2018. My new contemporary suspense/thriller series, An American Family, is coming in the fall of 2018 from Evolved Publishing.

I’m a bit of a free spirit who enjoys working from home, traveling around, looking for treasures to share, and creating worlds that otherwise would not exist. Thrifting and writing are my two passions, and I’m fortunate to be able to do both.

Melsa M. Manton grew up roaming the mountains of Western North Carolina. An early education of Aliens, Predator, Terminator, and Stephen King led to a love of science fiction and she began writing as soon as her fine motor skills allowed.

She studied International Affairs in Washington D.C. with the intention of diving into the political realm, but ended up diving into the ocean instead. An avid scuba diver, she spent seven summers sailing and teaching diving worldwide. For the next ten years, the wanderlust took her all over the world, from Russia to Tasmania, with many places in between, and eventually set her on a path of holistic medicine. She runs Blue Desert Hale, a wellness center and Cranio Sacral Therapy school, in the mountains of New Mexico.

Her life path has morphed considerably over the years, but there is one thing she has done consistently through it all. To write is to live.

Melsa’s personal motto: DREAM BIG OR DIE.

Watch for the first book of the “Gemination” sci-fi/fantasy thriller series, Hear No More, to release in the fall of 2018.

Big Brother is watching, but he’s quite the elusive doppelgänger, and he’s not the only one watching.

In present day Washington D.C., twenty-seven-year old Leyla Stone works as an agent for the Sedition Underground, a clandestine organization that acts as International 911, stopping injustices before the public is aware of them. When her partner is killed on what turns out to be an unauthorized assignment, she’s cast out from the Sedition. Weeks later, the enigma of all enigmas, Devlin Vail, rescues her from what he calls Geminates, genetically identical, yet superior, clones created in a radical genome endeavor initiated by an international conglomerate called the Faction. Vail is a defective of the project.

It is soon apparent that Stone is smack in the middle of a secret and relentless war between her former employer and new enemy. However, the enemy isn’t new—she only has no memory of them. She remembers every waking moment of her life…but not of what happens in the moments between dreaming and waking. A Sedition experiment fractured her propensity toward dissociative identity disorder into the perfect alter-ego assassin. This entity, Eva Fox, wakes when Stone goes to sleep, and she has her own instructions; end Gemination, disable the Faction. But after her partner’s death, Fox goes dark. Stone must follow the trail of breadcrumbs left by her missing counterpart and the cryptic guidance of her new ally to stop the Faction from launching a covert war against free will. What Stone does not realize is that the Faction is hunting her for more than just retaliation—they want her mind.

The “Gemination” series combines the amnesiac espionage of The Bourne Identity with the psychological unraveling of The Three Faces of Eve, set on the genetically manipulated stage of Brave New World. Frontier nanotech and a hint of the supernatural interlace for some truly twisted tradecraft.

I’m a born and raised Southern California girl who loves sunny days, horror movies, and traveling. I’ve had a love of words since I was a little girl, and spent several summers reading as many books as I could get my hands on. My love of reading led to a love of writing. I’ve been keeping diaries, which turned into journals, since I was ten years old. My goal was always to write a novel, but I wasn’t certain I could until I stopped wishing for it and started doing it.

Watch for Participant, a literary/women’s fiction book, to release in the spring of 2018.

Cassandra signs up for modeling school in her twenties. Will that save her from herself, or is modeling school just for kids?

Cassandra spends most sunny California days in a drab cubicle, toiling away at a job that crushes her soul, and goes home to a dysfunctional relationship that is doing a number on her heart. Plagued with discontent and haunted by an unsettling melancholy, she only worsens after her fiancé of almost three years packs up his things and leaves.

Desperate to pull herself out of a downward spiral, she spends money she doesn’t have on classes at the Chloe Dillon Modeling and Acting Center. Unexpectedly, she discovers a passion for acting.

Self-discovery and new friendships abound at the Chloe Dillon Modeling and Acting Center, where she opens her eyes to positive affirmations and mingles with talented, ambitious classmates. She’s turning her life around, painstakingly learning to love life… and herself. As she battles her way through self-doubt, fear, and depression, she musters the courage to risk it all, quitting her dreaded job and pursuing a huge opportunity that could help her break into the acting industry.

In the throes of preparation for the big industry showcase, Cassandra learns that her estranged fiancé has been diagnosed with a serious illness. In a financially and emotionally precarious situation, she must choose between a newly discovered ambition that might never become reality, and the relative safety and sense of loyalty she feels for the only man she has ever loved.

I’m a freelance writer and filmmaker, born in 1975 in The Gong, who now lives in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia with my wife and two sons.

I used to make my own mystery books in the fourth grade by typing them out on an old Olivetti, and I drew my first five-fingered human being when I was four years old.

In 2004, I pitched a comic series to Image Comics, and I contributed cartoons and designed a cover for the Litmus Journal of Melbourne in 2007.

I worked with the Victims of Crime department in Sydney, rubbing shoulders with ex-cons and stand over men, and sought restitution for their victims.

In 2014, I founded a production company, Glitchfilms, alongside my producing partner. In 2015, I wrote and directed an independent horror film, The Lights, which was released in selected cinemas. I self-published the tie-in, behind-the-scenes eBook, Dark Light: How to Get Your Horror Film into Cinemas.

I write every day and try to put some of myself into my writing. My passion is crime fiction, and my favourite authors include Karin Slaughter and Michael Robotham. I also love graphic novels by Neil Gaiman and Grant Morrison.

Clues point him in many directions, including an ex-bikie ice trafficker, two masked figures in a warehouse, and even the victim’s fiancée, who may have wanted Matt’s cousin out of her way.

Now, Matt has unwittingly exposed those he loves to a ruthless black-racketeering syndicate, and he must track a killer before they take out his family.

On his own and up against heavy odds, he exposes a horrific crime with devastating consequences, which will affect the town forever.
