Melanie Marchande is the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of contemporary billionaire romance. Her runaway hit, His Secretary: Undone, combines humor and heat in an irresistible package that’s been brought to life in audiobook and translated into multiple languages for foreign markets.
Born under the gray skies of Seattle, Melanie soon distinguished herself as the weird kid who spent hours drawing cartoons with elaborate storylines and ignoring all pleas to “go play outside for once.” Her aspirations to be either a dog trainer or an astronaut cowboy were quickly shot down by her practical parents. Though stubborn enough to be an attorney (her mother’s choice) and nerdy enough to go into engineering (following in her father’s footsteps), Melanie soon realized that her love of fiction simply would not be denied.
At some point in this timeline, Melanie allegedly became an adult. Although she never stopped writing, a general distaste for the judgment and rejection of authority figures kept her from finishing a novel for publication. But once she went indie, there was no going back.
Her first novel, I Married a Billionaire, danced its way up to the Kindle Top 100. Between fits of hyperventilating and shrieking like a schoolgirl, she immediately started planning a sequel. And so it goes...
Melanie now lives in Boston with her dog Coco, her cat Nigel, and a pile of dirty laundry that seems to multiply overnight. When she’s not writing, she enjoys power yoga, inventing recipes, yelling at video games, and watching YouTube videos of other people yelling at video games. She plans to retire from writing at some point after the earth crashes into the sun.
