Melody S. the Author of Love’s Wrong Turns. I'm a mother of three wonderful boys and the wife of an Army Veteran. I discovered love for writing at the age of twelve and has been writing ever since.

2. Introduce your book to us and tell the readers who have yet to read it what to expect.
Soul Speech (released on March 26, 2013) is a book of my original poetry that came from the need to heal and to tell my truth…without interruption. It is poetry inspired by life, love, self-growth, loss, pain, and honesty. With Soul Speech, I hope to be able to help someone else who may be dealing with some of the things that I’ve dealt with in my life. I want those out there who may be going through difficult times to read Soul Speech and know that they are not alone. That things can and will get better! Soul Speech is meant to empower and to motivate, and I’m sure that it will do just that.
3. What inspired you to write your first book?
I was inspired to write my first book, Love’s Wrong Turns by the need to meet a goal I’d set to pen a story a few years back. I didn’t want to be one of those people who always had this dream and never went after it.
4. Do you have a writing routine or do you just write when the feeling hits you?
I write every single day! With my first release I learned that it is important that I get into the habit of writing and allowing my imagination to flex while doing it.
5. Are you a self- publish author or go with a major company?
I consider myself to be self-published.
6. Do you read while you are writing?
I do not. In between releases I do enjoy curling up with a great book because at the end of the day, I am still an avid reader.
7. Where is your favorite place to write?
My favorite place to write is at this desk in my home office that my husband purchased and he and our boys put together. It’s an awesome space!
8. If you couldn’t be an author, what would your ideal career be?
A motivational speaker.
9. What is your favorite book?
My favorite book would have to be “The Coldest Winter Ever” which was written by Sister Souljah.
10. What do you want to tell the readers?
I want to tell the readers that I appreciate the love and support that they’ve shown me since the release of Love’s Wrong Turns and now with the release of Soul Speech. I am grateful to them for allowing me to be me and for accepting me just as I am.
