About the author
Born and raised on the plains, Melanie Nilles continues to enjoy the peace of the prairie. Her interest in science fiction and fantasy was planted as a child and, through the years, she fed her imagination with books and movies. Not until college, however, did she start her first novels. Many years later she was offered her first publishing contract. She has been writing and publishing ever since.
Depending on her mood, Melanie writes under one of two versions of her name. M.A. Nilles is the more serious side, while Melanie Nilles is her lighter, more romantic side.
She currently resides on the northern plains with her husband and kids, and a clowder of cats who take advantage of their human slaves for food and warm laps. An equestrian of over thirty years, Melanie has ridden in various disciplines from cattle work to dressage and continues to pursue her equine interests in her free time.
