Melissa L. Colon is a long time writer of fan-fiction and short stories. Her debut novel, Colder Weather, was released in May 2018. Besides reading and writing, Melissa loves photography and spends too much time binge watching her favorite television shows. The majority of her photos are taken with an iPhone7plus/iPhoneXs or a Nikon D5600 and can be found on her photography Instagram page.  Melissa was born and raised in Iowa and moved to Florida in the mid-1990s, where she lives with her husband, teenage son, and two small, but very boisterous dogs.
