About Melissa Koberlein: www.melissakoberlein.com
Melissa Koberlein is an author and professor in eastern Pennsylvania where she lives with her husband and their two daughters. Her passion for stories comes from an imaginative childhood where every day ended with a book.
She enjoys reading and writing about the spectacular, sci-fi, technology, and romance. She embraces her geekiness and enjoys sharing it with the world. Fireflies, a young adult trilogy, melding romance and light science fiction is a fun and quirky allegory for the future of nanotechnology. She’s also written about virtual reality (Deadlock), space (Raven’s Sphere), and androids (Her newest series, Ashwater). But don’t let the sci-fi elements deter you, there’s lots of humor and heart.
