Melanie Smith

Melanie for bio Born in Salt Lake City, Utah, Melanie worked as a support member in Law Enforcement for the past 26 years. Prior to retirement in 2016, she worked closely with the department’s specialty units to include K9, Motors, SWAT, Search & Rescue and the Mounted Posse. She coordinated communications and logistics for the SWAT Team and was a member of the Child Abduction Response Team’s Logistical Unit.

Melanie has an Associates Degree in Marketing, a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Business Management and a Postgraduate Certificate in Conflict Resolution and Negotiations. She now uses her training and experience to create stories that are entertaining but realistic.  In addition to writing, she is also an amateur photographer and uses her own pictures for book covers and web graphics.

Melanie is a multi-genre author of Paranormal, Criminal Suspense, Police Procedural and Romance novels.  She published her first novel, Dusk, in 2014. This is the first book in a Paranormal Romance series.  Her stories are exciting, action-packed, and gripping.  Her characters are classy, memorable and strong-willed.  When she’s not writing, she can be found riding her Harley, exploring the wilderness, or capturing that next great photo.

In 2015, Melanie co-founded Connections eMagazine with fellow author Rhoda D’Ettore. This is a quarterly subscription that helps bring authors, readers and bloggers together. The magazine is always free and continues to be a great resource for readers looking for that next great novel and quality authors wanting to promote their work.
