For #BlackHistoryMonth, we highlight the work of American author -- Melissa Blue

For Black History month, we wanted to shine our light on the tremendous work done by African-American and black women fiction authors.

Today we highlight African-American author --Melissa Blue (Amazon). 



Ms. Blue is a prolific author who writes what she called "romantic fiction for geeks." She is a hard worker who has turned her drive and ambition to writing fiction. While supporting seven series, she works full-time as a mail clerk for the US Federal Government. She began her career in 2004 "on a typewriter one month after her son was born" (her website).

Unlike many of our authors highlighted in this series, Ms. Blue's fiction spans raced with main characters of every race and background.  She tends to focus on hardworking, career oriented women. Her books are definitely hot romances, but they are also fun and filled with rich, memorable characters. Each book in the series is about a new male character and a new romance.

She was on the Women and Fiction podcast:

Where should you start? It depends on what you like!

Her series, #DeadlySexyGeeks, is about hot, sexy, geek men. The Forbidden Chronicles are about matchmaking women who find themselves interested in someone. In Gridiron Bad Boys, the sexy men play and work in the NFL. In the Grog Monster series the men run bars in small towns. Under the Kilt is about sexy Scots in professional situations.

She has participated in three book in the first season of the series Geek Actually Episodes.

Down with Cupid is a series of shorts.
