Melanie Nowak has always had a vivid imagination and a fascination for the paranormal. Acting and singing in theatrical productions throughout college and in church had always been a passion. However, upon conceiving the idea for the Almost Human series of books, she discovered a previously unknown passion for writing! Not only can she finally put her over-active imagination to good use, but she can create characters she loves, and she gets to play all of the parts!

Upon completion of the first Almost Human series of books, the author made the decision to publish her books independently, thus maintaining complete creative control of her vision for the series. She has founded WoodWitchDame Publications, published 29 titles thus far, and plans to release many more books for this exciting series!

Melanie Nowak lives on a peaceful mountaintop surrounded by forest in upstate New York with her loving husband, two young sons, and an ever growing collection of pets.
