Mel Howard

Middle Grade & Young Adult Author



I wrote my first story in first grade and won an award in a regional contest where I met a real live author for the first time. I was hooked. I started writing seriously as an undergrad. I wrote my first book in 2008 when I was supposed to be writing my thesis for graduate school. To take my writing to the next level, I completed a masters in English and Creative Writing in 2016. 
I have a love for most things nerdy. You’ll often find me reading, writing, watching TV and movies, playing with my two adorable nephews, or knitting. I love international travel and am dreaming of a spur-of-the-moment trip out of the country the moment I think it’s safe to venture outside again. I work as an Executive Coordinator and Project Manager and have a freelance editing business.
I live in Huntsville, AL, with the most spoiled cats you ever did see.
