Hello, you Smutty Romance Reader,

I’m Melissa, but you can call me M, MC, or Mel for short, and I'm so happy to meet you. I write steamy paranormal and monster romance stories with possessive heroes and strong heroines that don't give up no matter what comes their way. I share newsletters, blog posts, book recommendations, positive mindset and self-care tips, and things I’ve learned about the author world.


My main Substack houses all my newsletters, blog posts, and book recommendations. It’s a friendly little place full of mindset, positivity, and self-care tips which is incredibly important to me. I also share teasers and excerpts of my books, as well as sales and deals.

House of Magic is where I share information about spirituality and healing. Before I finally released myself to my dream of being an author, I had to get in touch with my intuition. I did that through my podcast, The Haunted Ride, and through letting myself just explore what felt good and right for me. House of Magic is my way to share that with others, who might be in the same boat I was. I have a backlog to add here so please be patient with me, but those posts will be coming soon!

One Author’s World is where I share a little bit about what I’ve learned along my author journey. The community and news is constantly changing and often times if you’re not in those spaces, you don’t know it. So this gives me the ability to talk about the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, and my opinion on it all. This one also has a couple of posts from the backlog, but they are on the way!
