About Melanie Shawn

Melanie Shawn is the writing team of sister duo Melanie and Shawna. Originally from Northern California, they both migrated south and now call So Cal their home.

Growing up, Melanie constantly had her head in a book and was always working on short stories, manuscripts, plays and poetry. After graduating magna cum laude from Pepperdine University, she went on to teach grades 2nd through 8th for five years. She now spends her days writing and taking care of her furry baby, a Lhasa Apso named Hercules. In her free time, her favorite activity is to curl up on the couch with that stubborn, funny mutt and binge-watch cable TV shows on DVD (preferably of at least eight seasons in length – a girl’s gotta have her standards!).

Shawna always loved romance in any form – movie, song or literary. If it was a love story with a happy ending, Shawna was all about it! She proudly acknowledges that she is a romanceaholic. Her days are jam-packed with writing, being a wife, mom aka referee of two teens, and indulging in her second passion (dance!) as a Zumba instructor. In the little free time she has, she joins Melanie in marathon-watching DVDs of their favorite TV programs.

They have joined forces to create a world where True Love and Happily Ever After always has a Sexy Twist!

    I just finished ‘My First’ and loved it. You write so well that I feel like I’m living their lives as opposed to just reading about it. But my main reason for reaching out is to say how amazed I am after reading your bio that your one of my family members!! I am also a ZIN in RI!! I would love to hopefully meet you if you attend convention!! Thanks for allowing me to escape from life and enjoy sharing these lives you created.

    Hello Melanie,

    Just wanted to drop you a few lines and let you know that I just got through reading my first Hope Falls book, Sweet Reunion. I loved it! Can’t wait to read the rest of the books in this series. I see you have another series too. Looking forward to reading those books as well.
