Melony Teague is a Freelance Writer, Ghost writer and Columnist.

“I was born in South Africa and stepped onto a plane to bring me to a new life in Toronto, Canada in 1999 and have not looked back. It took me 38 years to figure out what I wanted to be when I grow up. Now I love what I do and do what I love. I uncover stories hiding in plain view, but they are remarkable nonetheless. I believe that everyone has a story to tell…and sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. These are the things I write about.”  Learn more

Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano

Miss Permilia Griswold may have been given the opportunity of a debut into New York high society, but no one warned her she wasn’t guaranteed to “take.”

I just can’t tell you how delighted I am to have read Jen Turano’s latest book, Behind the Scenes, but I will try.
I endured my husbands looks as he put up with me reading and laughing out loud, giggling away (with the occasional snort) from chapter one right to the end. If you have never read a Jen Turano book before, DO IT NOW!! Her hilarious characters, who get themselves caught in hilarious situations are always the highlight of my To-Be-Read pile.

Just The Way You Are by Pepper Basham

I have been hearing some buzz in the book world about Pepper Basham’s upcoming release, mumblings about swoony heroes and closets and thought, “What are they on about? I will have to investigate further and find out if this book is as good as they say it is?” After all, you can’t just believe what you hear, in this day and age you have to find out for yourself. Make your own informed decisions. I am so glad I did.

Seriously, you will be giggling out loud in the first scene. Pepper is a genius.

Flirtation Walk by Siri Mitchell

Siri Mitchell is one of my favorite authors and so I snapped up this one when I could. Siri Mitchell graduated from the University of Washington with a business degree and worked in various levels of government. As a military spouse, she has lived all over the world, including Paris and Tokyo. Siri enjoys observing and learning from different cultures. She is fluent in French and loves sushi.

I love sushi (as long as there is not raw fish involved) and am NOT fluent in french. What a delight to read Siri’s Flirtation Walk

Between Heaven & the Real World by Steven Curtis Chapman

What a privilege to read and review singer and song writer, Steven Curtis Chapman‘s memoir, Between Heaven & the Real World. I have often said that truth is stranger than fiction and really, you can’t make this stuff up. What an extraordinary story of struggles, hope and purpose. Steven Curtis Chapman is known for his music career and his success as a Christian artist, but this book is so honest and raw, you will get a peek behind the scenes. As I said in my review, “If this book does not touch your heart, nothing will.”

Thoughtful Thursday with Meez Carrie

It’s Thursday again! How did that happen? It was Family Day here on Monday, so it kind of snuck up on me.

What a great honour to have with me today my dear friend Carrie Schmidt, otherwise known as Meez Carrie from ReadingIsMySuperPower.org. I met her in real life in Nashville while attending the CFRR 2016 (Christian Fiction Reader’s Retreat) The question I am asking myself, and my guests is this: What has been dominating your thoughts lately?
Well, I did ask, and so she did reply, and Zuzu makes an appearance too.
