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. Her short story, BECOMING FANNY, was featured in the holiday romance anthology THEN COMES WINTER, which released from Meryton Press winter 2015.

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
