A few weeks ago, I jokingly suggested that I could go for getting some disease, because I wouldn’t mind the opportunity to stay home from work and watch TV, and take a break from my life.
Well, shouldn’t have joked about it, because I came down with some intestinal bug that is kicking my ass and not only am I not enjoying it, I don’t even really get to take a break. I guess that’s adulting.
I was going to tell you a story about about how I once screwed myself out of a publishing contract by being too much of a lawyer (this was when I was in law school) and not enough of an author, but meh. I’ve got to rush off to the bathroom again.
Sorry guys, back in a couple weeks…
Skye became the black sheep of her university’s literature department when she announced that what she really wanted to do for her senior thesis, instead of writing a thought-provoking essay on the deeper meanings of James Joyce, was to write a romance novel. They gave in, however, and the rest is history. As a result, Skye learned more than she ever thought possible about the inner workings of the publishing industry and off and on, given her schedule, pursued publication of both her senior thesis and other novels she’s written along the way.
Skye has many names and almost as many personalities to go with them. As Melinda Skye, she writes Romantic Suspense, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult. As Skye Forbes, she may (or may not) have saved the world a few times over. In her real life, under another different name, Skye is a lawyer. And yes, if you ask nicely, she might help keep you out of jail. Or put you in it. It depends on her mood.
Skye lives in California, with her husband, brand new daughter, and menagerie of animals.
