About the Author

Dr. Melissa Caudle debuted her novel “Never Stop Running: A Novel on Reincarnation”
as the #1 New Release on Amazon. She is best known for her book “The Keystroke Killer Transcendence,” a psychological thriller that took her to death row to interview serial killers. Her books have received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Goodreads, and on Amazon. She also writes non-fiction for screenwriters, novelists, or film producers and has a series of adult coloring books called Abstract Faces. She enjoys the city life of New Orleans along with her husband Mike and their two sidekicks, a Tuxedo cat named Meow Mix and an American Gray Shorthair named Simone. She retired from a twenty career in education and entered into the film industry where she experimented with various occupations: production assistant, director’s assistant, travel coordinator, script supervisor, screenwriter, and director. However, she left that field in favor of pursuing her lifelong passion for writing. She does her best writing at her beach condo, on cruise ships, or in her sunny-patio-home office overlooking the paradise pool backyard. When she is not writing, she composes music, draws, paints reads, or edits other author’s books. Her goal is to continue to live a full and rich life and write every day.

Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?

I wrote this story with my seven grandkids during the pandemic. Each one is featured. Then, I found an illustrator. The book is about seven young cousins on an adventure in the bayous of Louisiana and they come across a magical creature.

Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?

Families with children. It makes a great bedtime story and is fun to read.

Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?

I would have to say Mark Twain because of his imagination. Then, I love anything Stephen Hawkin wrote.

I say continue to write every day and get feedback. Never publish a book unless you have had it professionally edited.
