Melody Carlson's Bio:

Melody Carlson has written around 200 books for teens, women and children. That's a lot of books, but mostly she considers herself a "storyteller." Her books range from serious issues like schizophrenia Finding Alice to lighter topics like house-flipping A Mile in My Flip-Flops but most of the inspiration behind her fiction comes right out of real life. Her young adult novels Diary of a Teenage Girl, TrueColors etc., appeal to teenage girls around the world. Her annual Christmas novellas become more popular each year. She's won a number of awards, including the Rita and Gold Medallion, and some of her books have been optioned for film/TV. Carlson has two grown sons and makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and yellow Lab dog.
