That Which Binds Us (Le Petit Mort Series Book 1)
Publication Date: April 17, 2016


Emory is your typical twenty-three year old woman. She goes to school, hangs out with her friends, and has a crush on the cute boy in her Law class. 

But not everything meets the eye. Behind closed doors, Emory is a huntress; she is determined to avenge her parent's death. With the guidance of her Pop, Emory takes down each of her targets one by one. Everything is going fineuntil Emory meets Caleb, her new target.

He is tall, buff, and sexy as hell. He makes Emory laugh and he's the only one that seems to see the real her. Emory knows that she has to kill him eventually...but that doesn't mean she can't have some fun with him first.


Threads of the Innocent, (Le Petit Mort Series Book 2)

Publication Date: June 28, 2016


After falling for a trap of her own, Emory is faced with an unspeakable choice: Turn on her family for something she didn’t think they did or get arrested and screw up her own life. How could Caleb honestly think that her Pop was capable of cold blooded murder? He was the one who saved her after the attack. But Caleb insists that he’s correct and that she’s wrapped up in something horrible.

Emory still doesn’t believe him.

But soon Emory is having dreams about the mother she barely remembered. Dreams are dreams, though, right? Emory doesn’t believe they mean anything…until her dead mother appears before her, very much alive, her long lost sister in tow. In that instant, Emory’s whole world is turned upside down. Everything she once knew was gone and replaced with an assault of questions.

Who was she? What type of family did she really have? And were her targets actually innocent?

Once upon a time there lived a woman named Megan. She lived in the perfect house with her perfect 
husband and was pregnant with their perfect son. 

…Except Megan isn’t perfect. Deep inside of her she hides a secret…a secret that will change her life forever. When tragedy strikes, her perfect world is shattered. Megan is forced to come face to face with the truth; she is a clairvoyant and has visions. 

The visions are back with a vengeance, assaulting Megan almost every single day; she can’t ignore them any longer. They are taking over her life, ruining relationships, changing her fate, and making her question her own sanity. When a little girl’s life hangs in the balance, Megan allows her visions to take her down a dark, dangerous road, determined to find the little girl, and herself, along the way.

Meet the Author

I am twenty-eight years old and I work as a Human Resource assistant at a medical center. I live in New York with my husband and our two dogs. I am also a New Adult author. Though I am new to the New Adult genre, I've been writing professionally for about eight years.

I started my writing career writing in the Young Adult genre. Back then, the YA genre was the most interesting and most relatable genre for me since I was just leaving my own adolescence. However, as I grow as a person and a writer, I find that the Young Adult genre has become restricting. Thus, I am dippingmy toes into the new world of New Adult. It’s a new adventure that I am excited to begin.

Here are 10 fun facts about me:
1. My real name is Melissa
2. I am a 'mother' to two adorable fur babies, Tootsie and Femi. Tootsie is a silky terroir while Femi is a 
shitzu-maltese mix
3. I wrote my first novel when I was seventeen
4. I used to write Young Adult fiction
5. I hate odd numbers
6. I'm only 4'10"
7. I just recently outgrew clothes I wore in middle school/high school
8. I live in a house that looks like a Gingerbread House
9. I have over 2,000 books in my possession (1,800 of them I actually read!)
10. I have had 28 surgeries altogether, 16 of them before I turned 12



Interview by Sirens


1. When and why did you begin writing?
My writing began at the tender age of six. I wrote my first short story about three princesses who had to move to another castle…it helped me ease into my own moving process with my family. I began writing because, as a kid, I was very sick. I was in and out of the hospital and I couldn’t do many physical things. Writing and reading were the two things that I knew I could do and I stuck to that.

2. When did you first consider yourself a writer?
At the age of 22 when I published my first YA book under my birth name. I have since created a Pen name and expanded my writing to the New Adult Genre which I believe fits me more. 

3. Do you plot out your books on paper? Or seat of your pants?
A little of both? I plot out what I want to happen in certain chapters just to get an idea but that’s about it. I can’t plot too much because then I feel shackled and stuck in the outline. But if I don’t plot enough I have no idea what’s going on.

4. Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
I write a little bit of both. I will definitely use events in my own life as experiences in my books. My most recent novel, Clandestin Illusions (publishing on September 24th) has certain scenes where it completely reflects my life. I will also use my friends as characters. My main character in That Which Binds us and Threads of the Innocent (Le Petit Mort Series books 1 & 2) is based off of one of my close friends because I thought her personality completely reflected what I wanted my character to be like.

5. What books have most influenced your life?
Harry Potter series, hands down. I grew up with the books, literally, and I fell in love with J.K. Rowling’s life story. She faced a lot of hardships but still didn’t give up on her dream. Also I love Judy Blume…she taught me everything I needed to know about girl stuff and love.

6. If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
J.K. Rowling. After what she went through, and she still came out on top, I look up to her. If she can face hardships and still follow her dream, I can do the same thing.

7. What book are you reading now?
I am reading Summer Wind by Mary Alice Monroe. I loved the first book of the trilogy so I had to find out what happened.

8. What are your current projects?
Wow, okay, I have a lot of them. I just submitted a Christmas Erotic Romance novelette for an anthology. I am writing a romance novella for another anthology. I have Clandestine Illusions that I am correcting and publishing soon. Then I hope to write books 3 & 4 of the Le Petit Mort Series. I have also offered to join yet another anthology that is getting set up by another author, and I’m considering writing a Christmas novel.…And this is all just for the rest of this year. 2017 is opening with 2 co-authored books, another novella series, maybe 2 more novels and goodness knows what else. Maybe a zombie book?

9. Do you see writing as a career?
For me, writing is a passion. It can be a career and I suppose I consider it my career. However, as most people know, unless you’re SUPER lucky, writing doesn’t always pay the bills. I have to work a day job to help pay the bills and keep a roof over my head. However, I am focused on writing and making this my full time career. I’m hoping that in the near future, I will be successful enough to be able to write without having to have another job. 

10. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in writing?
Blurbs…you know, the back cover ones. Usually I can write them no problem, but lately it’s been a struggle. I have to write the blurb for Clandestine Illusions and I just can’t seem to create it…I’m stuck. Another challenging part is to figure out what I want to write next. The ideas keep coming to me and I feel like I don’t have enough time to write everything.

11. Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
Jodi Picoult. She hits on the hard subjects and covers them in a way that people will understand and possibly relate to.

12. Do you have any advice for other writers?
Never give up! It doesn’t matter if no one believes in you or supports you. It doesn’t matter if they think it’s silly! If YOU believe in you, then never give up. You have a dream, a passion, and you need to follow it no matter what. Life is too short to regret following your dream.

13. Which of your books do you like the most?
I love my Le Petit Mort series. I have grown attached to the characters and the stories…I can’t wait to find out what happens (even though I’m writing it!) but I don’t want it to end. It’s a double edged sword that I have to face every single day.

14. Do you get nervous when you publish a book?
I do. I want people to like it. I want people to relate to my characters and their situations. It’s always nerve wracking when I publish a book. But in the end, I know that I like it and I truly wrote it because writing is my passion. Even if people didn’t like my stuff I would still write because I write for me…I write because that’s all I know and I love it.
