An avid fan of horror, Melissa D. Ellis loves to write spine-tingling, paranormal stories in hopes that her readers will always look under their bed before sleeping at night. A graduate of Tennessee Tech University, Ellis studied Music Therapy and Theater. She also has a degree in Christian Counseling.

When Ellis is not writing, she's enjoying the outdoors, conjuring up scary ideas to write about, changing diapers/potty-training, running carpool, being a mom, drinking a lot of coffee, or eating. She not only makes her living as an author, but also as a voice instructor and musician. She is fluent in movie and Spongebob quotes, loves interacting with fans, and is culinary-challenged.

Melissa makes her home in Tennessee as the outnumbered female with her husband and three boys.
