Prior to writing romance, award-winning, USA Today Bestseller Melinda Curtis was a junior manager for a Fortune 500 company, which meant when she flew on the private jet she was relegated to the jump seat—otherwise known as the potty. After grabbing her pen (and a parachute) she made the jump to full-time writer. Melinda has over fifty titles currently published and has sold 36 works to Harlequin and Grand Central Forever, mostly sweet romance and sweet romantic comedy. One of her books – Dandelion Wishes - is being made into a TV movie. She recently came to grips with the fact that she’s an empty nester and a grandma, concepts easier to grasp than movies made from her books or jet-setting on a potty.
New York Times bestseller Jayne Ann Krentz called Playing for Love “wonderfully entertaining.”
New York Times bestseller Brenda Novak said Season of Change “has found a place on my keeper shelf.”
Long and Short Reviews called Dandelion Wishes “a charming read, fun and original, that will pull at your heartstrings.”
Melinda is available for speaking engagements, interviews, and appearances. She teaches online writing courses and also loves speaking with book clubs or writer groups in person, via telephone or Skype.
