Melanie Thomas believes that sometimes people who are down on their luck just really need that little boost upward to improve their quality of life; and she can provide that. Since she started her tee-shirt embossing shop she has made a difference in her employees' lives by giving them a new lease on life--hope--a second chance. Her employees are grateful and dedicated to her, but someone else wants her property for his own purpose. Things start happening after he approaches her with an offer to buy her building--an offer she immediately turns down. When inspectors start showing up, Melanie believes it's a ploy to force her to sell and she silently laughs about it. But when the building burns, she knows exactly who to accuse. It hurts because she was falling in love with him. It seems everyone needs a second chance now and then.
BIOGRAPHY I love writing, and I love writing by the ocean. Currently, I am enjoying the Pacific Ocean in Montanita, Ecuador. I sit in front of my french doors watching the ocean as I write. Life is good.
I began to write seriously about 20 or so years ago, after I submitted a short story about my beloved black Labrador Retriever, to a veterinary magazine. I was so surprised when they bought it. After that, I tried a novel. When that was published, I entered it in a contest, and it won an award! That led me to believeI just maybe I could write. Since then, I have written ten more. I have just published two more books in the past two months. "Missing Memories" and "Angelface" are now available. So that makes twelve books published now.
Currently I am working on the sequel to "Angelface" while researching information for another one after that.
Originally, I am from Pittsburgh, PA. Most of my stories revolve around the Western Pennsylvania area, except "Second Chances." That one takes place in Florida, where I have lived for 15 years.
Wherever I go, my two loving cats, Duncan and Devin, go with me. They are here with me in Ecuador right now.
I hope you will read my books, and give me feedback. I love hearing from readers, and I always pay attention to what a reader has to contribute.
