Mel Teshco lives in the beautiful countryside of QLD Australia, where  the open spaces of her fourteen acres, fondly called 'the block', gives her room to breathe. When she isn't writing or dreaming of writing, she is often found gazing out the window at the surrounding mountains and thinking how very lucky she is. With one semi-patient husband, three gorgeous girls (with only one who hasn't yet flown the nest), two fat horses, two dogs and eight cats who run the house, writing has (mostly) kept her sane.
