About Me

Hi Everyone!

Well for starters, my name is Mel :)

I am a wife & mom to two handsome (and energetic) boys. I hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree, specializing in Finance and work full-time in the investment industry. When I do have some 'me' time, I'm usually found curled up on the couch reading a book or watching my favorite t.v. shows (a list that keeps getting shorter and shorter).

I hope to win the lottery some day so I can afford to tour the world.


  1. Amen on the lotto & touring the world? What's your top five destinations you want to check out?

  2. well if money was no object...
    1. Australia (Great Barrier Reef)
    2. Cairo (pyramids)
    3. tour Europe (too much to list!!)
    4. Amazon (rainforest)
    5. Africa (Safari)

    and a yearly trip to St. Lucia where I was married :)

  3. Oh heck if money was no object a World Cruise starting at 20K USD per person for a tiny cabin would be the thing! Spend half a year cruising and stopping at ports - oh yeah that's the life!

  4. Hi Mel!
    I just stumbled upon your blog from Jackie's blog. Both of you posted teasers from THE SWAN THIEVES today. Well... actually I think it was yesterday based on where YOU must live. ;)

    I just wanted to say hello and let you know I like your blog and share a similar interest in YA books. Good luck with all of your reading challenges. I'm joining J.Kaye's YA and Library Challenges this year, too!

    Happy Reading!

    p.s. I love your list of places you'd visit in your comment above. I'd LOVE to go to those places someday, too! :)

  5. Mel, I adore St. Lucia. The Pitons, Anse Chastenet resort, the banana plantations, everything about it. You must have had a glorious wedding and honeymoon. I'd love to go back again also.
