Mel McCoy has had a lifelong love for great humor and mysteries, reading everything from Donna Andrews to Libby Klein and obsessed with shows like Psych and the clean and fun mysteries of Aurora Teagarden. She cannot resist a good, light-hearted story that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Now she’s hoping to spread her love of mysteries through her new Cruise Ship Series centered around two, once-retired pastry chefs who whip up exquisite cupcakes for their passengers while trying to get along in the kitchen—and who are often forced together to solve murders.

Mel lives with her husband, two kids, and a rambunctious and bossy Yorkie named Ruby.
