I’ve
always been a creative individual. Writing is just a facet of that
creativity…

 

My careers in public relations in and around the
entertainment industry, photography, editing,  artist
management, modeling and special event planning all elevated my
passion for writing, not to mention gave me a treasure trove for
story lines.
I write women’s fiction; contemporary romance (as
Jamie Salisbury) and historical romance (as JR Salisbury) which is
ever evolving. I am fortunate enough that writing (and marketing of
said product(s)) is my full-time job, although I always have one or
two other projects going at the same time.
I now live in a
suburb of Atlanta. Some of my other interests include photography,
equestrianism, reading, and of course, travel.
I sincerely
hope my writing will entertain, enlighten, and inspire others to pick
up the pen and pursue their own dreams. I love to be contacted by
readers, writers, and history buffs.

Melissa West
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Pub
Date: 5/30/17

 

 

Farming family land on sunny Crestler’s Key,
the sweet, sexy Littleton brothers are notorious bachelors. But all that will change when the right woman comes along…
 
There aren’t many things Charlie
Littleton values more than his lifelong friendship with his buddy
Lucas, currently home from a tour in Iraq. But when he discovers that
Lucas’s younger sister, Lila, is back to assist the town’s
overburdened veterinarian, Charlie is torn. She’s no longer the
skinny, awkward kid he remembers, but a gorgeous woman—one Lucas
would never approve of him dating. When Lucas asks him to watch out
for Lila when he’s called to duty again, Charlie can’t say no—but
he can’t pretend it’s easy to ignore his feelings either.As
a teen, Lila crushed on Charlie—hard—and the man he’s grown up
to be is even more wonderful than she dreamed. Relationships are a
tricky business, though, and too much history is at stake to risk one
now. But every moment they’re together is heated by their simmering
attraction—and one day an impulsive kiss leads to much more. What’s
tangled in a matter of loyalty soon becomes a question of the kind of
love worth chasing…

Melissa West writes heartfelt Southern
romance and teen sci-fi romance, all with lots of kissing. Because
who doesn’t like kissing? She lives outside of Atlanta, GA, with her
husband and two daughters and spends most of her time writing,
reading, or fueling her coffee addiction.

MERRILY IN LOVE
by Melissa
West
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Pub
Date: 11/7/2017
 
The Littleton brothers are as much a
part of Crestler’s Key as the sun and surf, living the single life
without a care. But love has a way of changing even the most
determined bachelor’s mind.
Brady Littleton has left his reckless youth
behind to become a man his brothers can count on. When the family
dive shop needs to expand, he’s got the answer: buy the Christmas
shop next door. Except the retiring owner’s goddaughter, Kylie
Waters, has come back to town. She was Brady’s first kiss—his
first everything—and she doesn’t want to sell. He’s got a
solution to that too. Whoever makes the most sales by Christmas Day
can take over the shop, fair and square.
Kylie resolved to put the youngest, wildest
Littleton brother out of her head when he abruptly ended their
relationship years ago. But the steady, gorgeous man he’s become is
impossible to ignore. Especially once reminiscing leads to a kiss as
hot and heady as mulled wine. Their deal means that one of them is
going to lose out on a dream…unless Christmas Day brings the gift
of a sweet, surprising second chance.

Amazon bestselling Black Parade novels. Don’t miss out on this
explosive first-in-series!
Goodreads * Amazon
 

What is something unique/quirky about you?

I was traumatized by Jurassic Park as a kid and I still have nightmares about velociraptors breaking into my room and tearing me to pieces.

 

Tell us something really interesting that happened to you!

I hugged Captain America! As in Chris Evans! I attended New Orleans Comic Con in January 2017 and got a photo op with him and it was genuinely the greatest fifteen seconds of my entire life.

 

What are some of your pet peeves?

Rude, lazy, or discourteous customers. I’ve unfortunately been stuck working retail as a day job to support my writing and now I have an intense dislike for retail customers. Especially ones who either waste your time or explode on you for petty or idiotic reasons.

 

What are your top 10 favorite books/authors?

In no particular order, my favorite books are:

-Mr. Maybe by Jane Green

-Inheritance by Devin Grayson

-Helltown by Dennis O’Neill

-Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume

-Earthrise by M.C.A Hogarth

-Paradise Lost by John Milton

-The Iliad and the Odyssey by Homer

-Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce

-Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh

-Metamorphoses by Ovid

 

In no particular order, my favorite authors are:

-Jim Butcher

-Ilona Andrews

-Brian Jacques

-J.K. Rowling

-Neil Gaiman

-Richard Castle

-Elizabeth Haydon

-Chuck Wendig

-Geoffrey Thorne

-Junot Diaz

 

 

What inspired you to write this book?

I was inspired to write Of Cinder and Bone by a very weird thing, actually: the 2002 film ‘Reign of Fire’ starring Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey. It sounds bizarre considering that movie is aggressively awful, but the idea that it spawned is that not too many people write about dragons from an apocalyptic sci-fi view. I found myself in love with the idea of dragons being real animals that fit into modern day and so I found a way to bring them to life with realistic scientific methods and then decided to sort of study the idea of man vs. nature vs. God, much like what was briefly explored in the Jurassic Park film.

 

What can we expect from you in the future?

My future is planned out through about 2018 as of right now. The next book in the Of Cinder and Bone series, Of Blood and Ashes, will drop later this year, probably in the fall, but possibly in the summer if I finish it fast enough. I am also penning a novella for The Black Parade series that is going to premiere exclusively in an upcoming boxed set with other fantasy authors, but once the set is gone, I will publish it alongside the other four books in the series. After that, I’ll be writing the third book in the Of Cinder and Bone series and then see where I’d like to go from there for beyond 2018. I have an entire library’s worth of ideas, so it really just depends on what my fancy is at the time.

 

Do you have any “side stories” about the characters?

As I mentioned before, the upcoming novella for The Black Parade series is precisely that: a side story that occurs between the second and third novels of the series. I also have another short story for one of the side characters in The Holy Dark, but I haven’t decided if I will fully pursue it since it’s just a short story rather than a novella. I’ve put it on the back burner for now, but if I pick it up and apply full attention to it, then I may actually release another set of short stories told by side characters.

 

Where were you born/grew up at?

I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in a metro-Atlanta city called Riverdale, but trust me, it has no relation to Riverdale from the Archie comics. It’s honestly no longer a nice place to live, but it was while I was a kid. My mother’s side of the family still lives there, and so I always visit during the year.
