About the Author Edit

M.J. Scott

Bio: M.J Scott is an unrepentant bookworm. Luckily she grew up in a family that fed her a properly varied diet of books and these days is surrounded by people who are understanding of her story addiction. When not wrestling one of her own stories to the ground, she can generally be found reading someone else’s. Her other distractions include yarn, cat butlering, dark chocolate and fabric. She lives in Melbourne, Australia. ~ Goodreads

✥ I was born in Melbourne, Australia but grew up in various green and grassy parts of Victoria. I moved back to Melbourne for uni and have stuck here ever since, apart from a brief sojourn in London. My life, apart from the day job, revolves around books, writing, the odd sewing, knitting, spinning or quilting binge and taking orders from my feline overlords. My two great reading loves have always been fantasy and romance. I grew up reading Tolkien alongside L.M. Montgomery and Susan Cooper, Diana Wynne Jones and David Eddings mixed with Heyer, Austen and all the Harlequin and Loveswept books I could find. So I guess it’s inevitable that I wound up writing books that incorporate both genres. I’m currently writing the Half-Light City series, a dark fantasy quadrology for Roc and The Wild Side, an urban fantasy trilogy (Book 1, The Wolf Within out now) More about that on my books page. You can read my “call” story here. Or other FAQs about me, my books, writing and life here. I also write contemporary romance for St. Martin’s Press as Melanie Scott. ~ About | M. J. Scott
