Melody of Redeeming Qualities
spends her days teaching history and her nights writing historical happily-ever-afters. She has lived and worked in the Philippines, but she currently writes at her brick house on a New England homestead–kept company by her husband, a growing flock of chickens, and two geriatric border collie mutts.
Lydia San Andres
lives and writes in the tropics, where she can be found reading and making excuses to stay out of the heat.
