Melinda's first book, Golden, is based on Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and story I think we can all admit doesn't get enough attention in this day and age of fairy tale retellings. Go Melinda! Power to you for bringing this story back to the front lines! It's a very loose retelling, so it's not the exact story, but it's told in a much more dramatic and suspenseful way. Her upcoming book, Roses, will be out this spring. There's no summary for it yet, but we're hoping it's another fantastic and unique retelling!
Come to YA Fest 2017 to see Melinda for realsies! Chat her up, flail with us as we freakout with excitement over her new book... you know, the usual. In the meantime, find her at her website, on Facebook, and on Twitter!

High school senior Hanna Loch just suffered a blackout in front of her entire homeroom class. She hasn't had one in over ten years, and she’s terrified—the last time she blacked out, she woke up with no memory of her life before. To make matters worse, no one can explain why it happens. For Hanna, bad things tend to come in threes.
And that doesn't even begin to cover it . . .
When she learns she could be a descendant of someone who lived once upon a time, Hanna must put her trust in William Vann, a descendant of one of the most hated villains ever known. Their histories are intertwined in more ways than she expected, and he has answers about her past, answers even her family won’t share.
But is it safe to put her trust in someone who appears to be danger reincarnate, while trying to escape the darkness that tried to kill her ten years ago?
A loose fairytale retelling, GOLDEN is a story that’s just right, weaving together lost secrets, vengeful enemies, and what happens when fiction becomes reality.
Release Date: Spring 2017!
