Long: A Star Wars junkie and Shakespeare groupie who quotes both Yoda and the Bard with equal aplomb, USA Today bestselling author Melonie Johnson–aka #thewritinglush–loves dark coffee, cheap wine, and expensive beer. And margaritas. And mimosas. And mules. Basically any cocktail that starts with the letter m. She met her future husband in that most romantic of places–the mall–when they were teenagers working in stores across the hall from each other. Today, they live happily ever after with their two redhead daughters, a dog that’s more like a small horse, and a pair of hermit crabs. After earning her Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago, Melonie taught high school English and Theatre for several years. Now she writes smart and funny contemporary romance and moonlights as an audiobook narrator under the pseudonym, Evelyn Eibhlin. Declared a “writer to watch” by Kirkus and a “fizzy, engrossing new voice” by Entertainment Weekly, her debut series from St. Martin’s Press, SOMETIMES IN LOVE, has appeared on the Amazon Best Books of the month, and been featured in Cosmopolitan and Woman’s World. Watch for her next rom-com TOO GOOD TO BE REAL, coming summer 2021. Visit her at meloniejohnson.com and find her on Twitter and Instagram at @MelonieJohnson.
