My name is Melanie James, and I write fiction. I love stories that push the limits of imagination and explore the seemingly impossible. Thank you for visiting my author site. Writing has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Characters and worlds with intricate plots come to life in my mind, and I feel compelled to explore and discover them and then write all about it so that others can love them as much as I do. Find out more about my novels below, and click on a book to read a sample (or even the full text of some). I welcome feedback on all of my work. I look forward to hearing from you.

Also, check out my author blog (Muse, Write, Repeat) where I share random tidbits I've written, books I like, and other tales of my life and the subjects of writing and reading in general. I try to keep it lively and fun, so check it out!

The Twisted Tree
After Aneth's best friend, Geoffrey, disappears, her search for him uncovers secrets she never dreamed could be true--fairies, a magical Twisted Tree, an underground world of mystical creatures, and a tyrannical Dragon Lord.

With her life and the lives of many others at stake, Aneth undertakes a dangerous quest to cut off the Dragon Lord from his ultimate source of power and defeat him once and for all. But will she be able to complete her quest before time runs out, or will she remain forever trapped in the world guarded by the Twisted Tree.

 Burning (a novelette)
 It isn't enough for Jenny Wayland to save the life of a peculiar John Doe. Before he is even awake, she knows he has come with an imperative goal. Reading his mind only makes the situation more puzzling for Jenny, and soon pulls her into an impossible race to prevent a huge burning brought on by others who are just as gifted as she is, and far more dangerous.
