Melody Carlson

Honored with Romantic Times Career Achievement Award, bestselling author Melody Carlson has been writing (professionally) for more than twenty years, with more than 200 books published and more than five million books sold. She attributes her success to her changing environment whether it’s staying in her beach cottage or enjoying her home near the Cascade Mountains; she reflects on the diverse scenery and easily gathers plenty of writing ideas. In addition to the two writing retreats Melody and her husband take RV ever exploring the country and area for new story ideas and they enjoy skiing, hiking, gardening, camping and biking.

Favorite Verse: John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

It’s the “whosoever” part that gets me. That’s who I write for – “whosoever” and to me that means everyone and anyone.
