Melody, author of inspirational historical fiction, Seeking Sophie, lives in rural Pennsylvania with her husband of twenty-four years. They have two grown daughters and a ten year-old son. She has had the privilege of both being a homeschooling, stay-at-home mom and a full-time working mom. For more than twenty years she has been very involved in natural healing as a student of various modalities and as a certified reflexologist. Currently, Melody works as a service writer in a large machinery dealership. She has traveled to Africa for a non-profit organization that aids orphans in Zambia and has been involved in children’s and women’s ministry at her church.
Diversity is a must for Melody and she enjoys a wide variety of pastimes. Traveling, hiking, camping and kayaking are some of her favorite activities.
Melody's passion is to encourage people to open up and let the love of God free them of fear and rejection to live the adventurous life their Creator intended. She hopes, though her fiction, readers can relax with an entertaining saga and take their own transforming journey to the Father’s heart.
