I usually do my writing at a wonderful little coffee shop in my hometown. Here’s my “office” with my Fez green tea, my laptop, a stack of research books, and a binder for my chapter outline and character synopses.
Melanie Dobson is the award-winning author of nine historical, suspense, and romance novels including Love Finds You in Liberty, Indiana, The Silent Order, and Refuge on Crescent Hill.
Melanie has been writing fiction since her first attempt to write a mystery when she was in middle school. Her first novel (Together for Good) was published in 2006—a story inspired by the adoption of her oldest daughter.
“My desire,” she says, “is that the stories God has etched in my heart will give readers a glimpse of His love and grace even when they don’t understand His plan.”
Melanie and her husband, Jon, have two daughters. After moving numerous times, the Dobson family has finally settled near Portland, Oregon, and they love to travel and hike both in the mountains and the cliffs above the Pacific. When Melanie isn’t writing, she enjoys exploring ghost towns and dusty back roads, line dancing, and reading stories with her kids.
