About Me...


Hello! I'm Melissa Koberlein.


I'm a bestselling romance author and professor of communication and publishing. I live in eastern Pennsylvania with my husband and our two daughters. I love animals, especially my dog, Zoe, and our cats, Molly & Loki. I'm also a HUGE Philadelphia Eagles fan. Phillies too. 


My passion for stories comes from an imaginative childhood where every day ended with a book. When I was thirteen, I discovered my mom's romance novels. I've been hooked on love ever since. I enjoy reading and writing about swoon-worthy heroes and relatable heroines, awkward moments that make characters blush, and, in my young adult stuff, lots of approachable sci-fi. What can I say? I embrace my romantic heart and geekiness and love 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. I've also written about virtual reality (Deadlock), space (Raven’s Sphere), and androids (my newest series, Ashwater). But don’t let the sci-fi elements deter you, there’s lots of humor and heart. All of my books are available online and in bookstores.
