Melaine Bryant knew she wanted to be a writer from the moment she learned how to hold a pencil. To the consternation of her teachers and parents, she preferred writing to paying attention in school, and spent many happy hours composing stories, books, and screenplays. She grew up immersed in The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, the stories of King Arthur, and many other fantasy books by authors such as John Christopher, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Lloyd Alexander.
Always an avid reader, Melaine has a background in English and classical literature and languages. She had intended to follow her father's footsteps to a Ph.D. in English Literature, but found that writing The Prophecy Keepers series was much more fun.
