Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My name is Melanie Hamilton, I am from a small town and I live on a horse farm, Hamilton Stables. I am about to get married on the 14th of October to the love of my life, who is in the NAVY. I enjoy the medieval period, which explains the style my characters wear in my series. I enjoy action, adventure, romance, and fantasy. I have written three books. The first one is published, the second is being edited and the third is nearly finished.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The latest book is the third series of Shift. What inspired the Shift series was a question; If you could be anything, what would you want to be? Well I could not choose. I wanted to be a Pegasus, a mermaid, and a wolf. So in my books I get to be all three.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
While I am outside working I will listen to my Pandora Internet Radio station 'game of thrones' which plays several instrumental songs that really gets my brain pumping and flowing. I will think about what to write next and at the end of the day I will go in, and begin typing it as if it is being played in my head.

Stephanie Meyer, the Twilight Series and her book, The Host. J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter. The Divergent Series. The Hunger Games. Nicolas Sparks. Game Of Thrones.
