Season One : Episode 05 -- Melissa Blue talks to Claudia about writing romantic fiction for geeks.

Melissa Blue is a prolific author who writes romantic fiction for geeks. In this episode, she talks about writing, being published by a publisher vs. self publishing, as well as the challenges of being a person of color in the all white world of romance fiction publishing. 

Melissa Blue’s writing career started on a typewriter one month after her son was born. This would have been an idyllic situation for a writer if it had been 1985, not 2004. She penned that first contemporary romance, upgraded to a computer and hasn’t looked back since. Outside of writing, Blue works as a mail clerk for the federal government, has a paralegal certificate (that she has more use for as a dust pan) and is a mother of two rambunctious children. She lives in California where the wine is good and, despite popular belief, is not always sunny.

You can find her on her at her website, but Claudia usually finds her at Facebook or Twitter.
