Defiance (The Priestess Trilogy #1)

Shiovra has been named High Priestess of the village Tara, but she quickly finds herself hunted by the Milidh, a clan born of war and vengeance. With the safety of Tara at stake, it is decided she is to seek aid from her betrothed, one she considers the enemy.

At her side is Odhrán, a Milidh warrior sworn to protect her and determined to gain her trust. But their journey is fraught with peril and Shiovra learns that darkness lurks in the hearts of her own kin.

Steeped in ancient Irish myth, this tale is spun of love, war, and DEFIANCE.

Born in 1982 in Cleveland, Ohio, Melissa has always been an avid lover of fantasy. In her youth she would write short stories and add artwork to them. While in high school, she decided to change her career path from graphic art to writing, though she still enjoys drawing up a random picture or two, usually of her characters. During her younger school years, she won a Young Authors Honorable Mention for a short story she had written. Melissa has also won a few Visual Arts awards during her school years and upon graduation from High School, she was given a President’s award for Outstanding Academic Achievement.

The first book she began to write seriously for publication was The Priestess. Began in 2004, the story was completed in 2008 and separated into a trilogy upon publication in 2010 (Twilight, Destiny, and Eclipse). When Melissa switched publishers, she revised the story and changed two of the titles (Defiance, Betrayal, and Eclipse).

Her current book series is The Chronicles of Midgard, which will be a five book collection once completed.
