Melanie Stanford writes romance and YA of different genres. Her first novel, SWAY, a modern-day retelling of Jane Austen’s PERSUASION, debuted December 2015 from Samhain Publishing. Since Samhain's closure, Melanie decided to republish SWAY herself, along with the rest of her Romance Revisited series. CLASH, a Romance Revisited novella, released June 2017. COLLIDE, her next Romance Revisited novel, will release November 2017. She also has short stories featured in the Austenesque anthologies THE DARCY MONOLOGUES and THEN COMES WINTER.

Melanie reads too much, plays music too loud, is sometimes dancing, and always daydreaming. She would also like her very own TARDIS, but only to travel to the past. She lives outside Calgary, Alberta, Canada with her husband, four kids, and ridiculous amounts of snow.

Melanie also blogs at the YA-NA Sisterhood, Austen Variations, and Meryton Press. She is happy to speak on the craft or business of writing and can be contacted by email about events.
