Bio:


"Forget all the rules


Forget about being published


Write for yourself and celebrate writing"


by Melinda Haynes


 


(My pen name was formerly smolley)


Just an ordinary lady who recently discovered the joy of writing.  I write stories that I would want to read.  Thnx to all those who read my stories and to those who comment on them. 


I surprised even myself in Aug 2018 by self-publishing my first book titled From Broken Heart to True Love, available on both amazon and barnes and noble websites.  It is an international romance story.  


Most of my stories are also posted on

Reviews, favorites, follows and just plain reads are very much appreciated. My creative juices ebb and flow but it is so much fun to create this alternate reality for such great characters. Nice to know there are folks out there who are fans of them.

The Williamson sisters breezed into Llanview like whirlwinds.  Now years later after Evangeline's death let's see how the fair citizens of Llanview are faring.  There are a few surprises in store for all. Things aren't always as they seem.

This story is in answer to a challenge from JoVanAdDek requesting a story of Layla regaining her fierceness.  Hope that it works.

Summary:

"Stroll on the Boardwalk" was chapter 4 of the JOVAN Saga.  At the end of that story I asked for readers to suggest a sequel plot.  This story is a result of those responses. If you're not familiar with the "Stroll the Boardwalk" chapter please do read it.  It will make this story more relevant if you read it first.

Summary:

John McBain decides to leave Llanview for a new job and a new city.  Join him as he 'finds' his way.  Who knows what exciting things lie ahead for him?

Just remember that sometimes life surprises us.  How we handle that surprise shows our true strength.  Not all will be revealed at once.  Have patience and it will be worth the wait.  

We will introduce some new characters so come along for the ride and enjoy the scenery.
