20 Things I Bet You Didn't Know About Melissa Lummis

Melissa fell in love with vampires when she saw Love at First Bite for the first time and her heart was utterly lost to them when she read her first gothic vampire romance. 

Melissa loves to read the classics, fantasy, science fiction, and lots and lots of smexy books, including erotica. ;-)

Melissa read every Black Stallion book and daydreamed of living on Azul Island with Steve Duncan and Flame.

Melissa wears her cowboy boots with everything--dresses, shorts, jeans, you name it.  And she was born a Yankee.

Melissa's great-great-great grandfather, Henry Harrison Heinman of the 2nd Calvary assigned to guard General Meade, died at Gettysburg, but not before he killed her husband's great-great uncle, Jim Bowie Magruder, the Colonel in command of the Virginia 57th out of Charlottesville, Virginia.

The Money Shot on Katahdin
Melissa thru-hiked the entire Appalachian Trail with her husband in six and half months in 1998.  Her trail name was Peacepipe.

She has a tattoo of a peacepipe on the back of her right shoulder.

Melissa lived in an intentional community (kind of like a commune) for a year.

Melissa has been known to frequent clothing optional beaches.  

Melissa changed careers four times: from High School English Teacher to Technical writer to Yoga Teacher to Author.

The night Melissa's grandmother died she dreamt they were having tea and her grandmother stood up and said she was going to have to leave now but that Melissa should watch for the butterflies--because they would be her grandmother coming to check on Melissa.
Kodi being cute

Melissa has an Alaskan Malamute named Kodiak, who is a girl.

Melissa was raised by hippies.  No, really.

Melissa graduated from Penn State and bleeds blue and white.

She breathes a huge sigh of relief every year when the first, crisp fall day arrives.

To save her aching back, Melissa had breast reduction surgery and the insurance company paid for it

One of Melissa's guilty pleasures is watching the reality show Full Throttle Saloon and she really, really wants to go to Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and meet Jesse James and Michael Ballard and Angie. :-D

Something that makes Melissa very happy:  a shot of wheat-grass with fresh, raw ginger followed by a beet and citrus juice chaser.

The Yurt

Melissa's secret alone behavior:  eating exactly six oreo cookies dunked in milk for exactly the count of 6 Mississippi while watching reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  Shhhhhhh.....

When she's writing in her yurt, she takes a break every hour for 10 minutes and does one of three things: dances to Skrillex, hula hoops to Skrillex, or watches Youtube videos of Skrillex

 Here are the lovely ladies of Romantic Edge Books spending some quality time together.  If you're going to make it as a writer, don't try to do it alone.  I love these women with all my heart and count my blessings every day that they came into my life.  Writing is a long road and not for the faint of heart; if it wasn't for these women, I would be very lonely and miserable.  They make me laugh, lift my spirits, are always honest with me, and never let me give up.  Namaste, beautiful friends.
