If you’re looking for me, I’m not too hard to find, scattered across the interwebs in such places as:

Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr (um, not so much), and Pinterest (maybe too much).

Want to ask me about a particular post, or dying to hear more about my current writing project?  I’m not sure I ‘ll respond, because I’ll probably assume you’re an internet nutball…but on the off chance you’re not a nutcase and have a legit reason to seek me out  – you can reach me at meloniewrites AT gmail DOT com

You can also look me up on LinkedIn

And if that’s still not enough for you, you’re welcome to like my  FaceBook Author page and check out my Google Plus Author Profile.

Award-winning author Melonie Johnson—aka #thewritinglush—is a two-time RWA Golden Heart® finalist who 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 in the magical land midway between Chicago and Milwaukee with their two redhead daughters, a dog that’s more like a small horse, and a trio of hermit crabs. After earning her Bachelor of Arts magna cum laude from Loyola University Chicago, Melonie taught high school English and Theatre in the northern Chicago suburbs for several years. Now she writes smart and funny contemporary romance and moonlights as an audiobook narrator under the pseudonym, Evelyn Eibhlin. Watch for her contemporary romance debut, THE SOMETIMES IN LOVE series, coming summer 2019 from St. Martin’s Press. Melonie is represented by Pamela Harty of the Knight Agency.

A Star Wars junkie and Shakespeare groupie who quotes both Yoda and the Bard with equal aplomb, you can visit her at and find her on Twitter and Instagram at @MelonieJohnson.
