Author Spotlight: Melodie Ramone

Author Spotlight: Melodie Ramone

I've had the pleasure recently of meeting Melodie through social networking channels. She's an extraordinary person. She's charming, sweet and funny. She is also the author of After Forever Ends. I'm currently reading it, so please check back at a later date to read the review. It's an easy and very enjoyable read so far. The characters are amazing and so relatable. I find it refreshing. The full review will be available soon.

Orphaned by her mother and brushed off by her dad, fifteen year old Silvia Cotton had lived a lonely life. That is until 1985 when her father moved the family from the Highlands of Scotland to the Midlands of Wales. It is there she was enrolled in Bennington, a private boarding school, met the charming and rebellious Dickinson twins, Oliver and Alexander, and her regrettable life was changed forever. Locked into a fierce friendship with Alexander and lost to a whirlwind romance with Oliver, Silvia found herself torn away from everything she thought she knew. Married too soon, she moved with Oliver to a rustic cabin deep in a Welsh wood and embarked upon a life she'd never planned for, surviving on hope she never knew existed and faith she never knew she had. She made her way through university and onto a career, only to surrender her ambition to raising her children and living a life that was strikingly "normal". But what is normal? Certainly not what ensued in the wood. True love, faeries, friendship, loves lost and gained. Old magic, fate, doubt, strength and courage, Silvia's story could belong to anyone, but it is her own. Simple yet extraordinary, told in retrospect with wit and candor, Silvia recalls a life of joy and sorrow, laughter and tears. As she unravels the tangled web of her days, she reveals the secrets that exist in an ancient wood, how hearts given freely can become the stuff of magic, and how true happiness was never any further than her own back garden.

Melodie Ramone is a wife, mother, fosterer of unwanted pets, speaker, novelist and Certified Kitchen Witch. When she is not in the kitchen whipping up culinary magic, she can usually be found knitting, reading anything she can get her hands on, delving into Particle Physics or writing her stories. Although Melodie's roots lie in Scotland and Wales, she resides in the United States.
