Melissa Lawson is a native of Philadelphia. Her love of writing began as a teenager when she would write short stories and poems. Her love continued into adulthood when she had one of her poems, “Were You There”, published in the “Ex Umbra” while in college at North Carolina Central University. She was truly inspired to write about her experience at the historic “Million Woman March” in 1998. Her debut novel, “Two of Hearts” was released on May 26, 2015 to great reviews with the sequel, “Love Is A Gamble: Play To Win”, released October 2016. She began writing romance novels because of her relationship research. The stories that she uncovered, ultimately became a blog entitled, “My Relationship Reality”. The third installment of the book series, “No More Lies” is coming soon.
In addition to being an author, she is an educator, athletic administrator, high school counselor and proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, currently active in the Chester Alumnae chapter and also served as the co-chair of the Arts and Letters committee. Melissa currently resides in the Philadelphia area with her husband and three children.
