R.M. Meluch has been putting stories to paper ever since she could hold a crayon. She sold her first short story when she was seventeen. Got a big $7.50 for it. She is the author of the Tour of the Merrimack series with DAW Books. Her first story with WordFire was Dagger Team Seven in the Five by Five 2: No Surrender anthology. Originally from Ohio, she now lives in New York with her husband, Stevan Apter, and a bulldog, a Rottweiler, and a great white shedding thing. Learn more at Rmmeluch.com.
