Melissa Poettcker resides in Central Alberta, Canada, with her husband and two little boys. She majored in music composition, but soon discovered telling stories with words was just as fun—maybe even a little more. When she’s not turning up the temperature in her house, she can be found reading YA, writing YA, cheering on her sons in hockey, and enjoying spicy food.  

 Melissa writes Young Adult books with a supernatural twist. The Beautiful Curse is her debut novel.
