Melissa Bowersock was born amid the asphalt of Southern California, raised her children in the forests of Oregon and now makes her home in the desert of Southern Arizona. Never one to confine the muse to a disciplined schedule, she has always worked "regular jobs" and written when the inspiration strikes. She is currently employed at the National Observatory and, as always, writes in her spare time with several books in process at once.
Her varied interests keep her from settling on a single genre of fiction and she has written science fiction, fantasy, westerns, contemporary and historical romance.
A certified hypnotherapist, she is currently working on a non-fiction book detailing her own experiences with past lives recalled under hypnosis, as well as a novel based on one of her regressions.
