Melissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasn’t hoping for a career as a race car driver. Her love of books was instilled by her mother and grandparents who were avid readers. She’d often sneak books away from them so that she could fantasize about those strong alpha males and plucky heroines. In middle school and high school, Melissa wrote sappy love poems and shared them with her friends. She still has those poems today! In college, her writing changed to sarcastic musings on life as well as poems with a modern twist on fairy tales and won awards for her writing. You can find many of these musings along with her latest releases on her website and blog.

There is something enticing about a small town during the holidays. Maybe it is the festive decorations dotting the streetlights or the three-story plastic Santa Claus that stands sentinel over the lawn of my favorite restaurant. I love when the snow creates a winter wonderland as the aroma of baked goods filter out into the street from Keidrowski’s Bakery or watching the children with their faces pressed up against the old Ben Franklin’s window. The older homes become showcases once the lights go on and darkness settles about the town. It is so peaceful to drive through the town looking at all the lights while listening to Christmas music on the radio. The church bell still rings on the hour at the church on the corner of Church Street and people just seem friendlier.

I wanted to share my hometown with my readers. Amherst, Ohio has become a huge part of the Wilder Sisters series. Each book shares a little bit about the city and what it was like growing up in the town. Forever Love talks about the teen years at the local beach. Beach Desires shares some of the angst of high school, while A Christmas Accident shows how the community comes together for others. I encourage you to take a trip to Amherst in the latest Wilder Sisters series book.
