P.J. Mellor grew up on the beaches of the Great Lakes before moving
to Colorado...and almost no beaches. Which is one of the reasons
she now lives in the Deep South (where there are two seasons:
summer and not summer) and enjoys the gorgeous beaches of the Gulf of
Mexico when she's not surfing the net.
Besides writing, she enjoys
reading, sewing (she recently made new draperies and shades for her
entire home without attaching them to her sleeve more than a few times),
swimming, and assassinating flowering plants. Her personal goals
are to keep her checkbook balanced, make the NYT Bestseller list,
and return to her original weight--five pounds, thirteen ounces.
