Melanie Atkins

Melanie Atkins is a multi-published author of romantic suspense. Writing is more than an escape for herits a way of life. She grew up in the Deep South listening to tall tales and penning stories about her cats. Now she writes gripping stories of love, suspense, and mystery with the help of her furry little feline muses.

With suspense as her forte, Melanie needed to do research... so in 2007, she attended Forensic University, her first law enforcement/forensic oriented conference, sponsored by the St. Louis chapter of Sisters in Crime. Since then, she has attended Lee Lofland's Writers' Police Academy five times and participated in three local Citizens' Police Academies, two with the Jackson Police Department, and one sponsored by the Hinds County Sheriff's Office. She discovered there's nothing like riding along with a cop on patrol to get her adrenaline pumping.

Melanie is an active member of Sisters in Crime (SinC), Mississippi Writers Anonymous, the Red Dog Writers, the Gulf Coast Writers Association, the Southern Writers, the Mississippi Writers Guild, and the Byram Writers Group. In addition, she blogs about her favorite television show, ABC's Castle, with Lee Lofland on his Graveyard Shift blog. A link may be found on her Links page under Extra.
