Featured Author Melissa J. Cunningham

Author Bio:
Melissa Cunningham (also known as M.E. Cunningham) was born in Oregon but grew up in Utah, where she was raised on a steady diet of fine literature from Charlotte's web to the The Trumpeter Swan, and then plenty of romances in her teen years. She now lives with her husband on a little farm in northern Utah where all she can see out of her back door is miles of pasture and stunning sunsets. Not only does she raise horses, dogs, cats, and chickens, but her five kids also. When Melissa is not writing you can find her spending time in the outdoors with her family or dancing wildly to rock music in her living room. She loves running, camping, and all things fiction--scary, mind-numbing stories preferred. Find her at 

Reluctant Guardian from The Ransomed Souls Series. 

            This is it. This is my moment, and I'm not going to let some stupid boy and a bunch of his idiotic friends scare me into failing. Closing my eyes, I float through the closed door, letting myself enjoy that slight pull on my soul as I meld with the wood for one second, feeling its aliveness, its purpose. This is one part of being a spirit that is genuinely cool. Everything is alive.
            Once through, the brightness in the room surprises me. As unexpected as that is, what amazes me even more is that the glow radiates around one person in particular.
            He sits sprawled at his desk, his feet clad in heavy, black combat books, his ankles crossed. A thick, ratty sweatshirt stretches over his wide shoulders, and even though his hair is a mess, it fits him, making him much sexier than is healthy for a seventeen year old boy.  (pg 62)

Book blurb for Book III coming out soon!!:

They call it The Door to Hell. A blackened crater that never stops spewing up poisonous gas from the bowels of the Earth, but gas isn’t the only thing coming from that crater… 
They slither out, those malevolent souls—demonic filth that wreak havoc and destroy lives. They don’t even pretend to hide… 
Brecken, an ex-demon trying to find redemption, is given the task of closing The Door. A seemingly impossible task. A group of teens who call themselvesCazadors, will be his allies. These extraordinary youth can see the demons when no one else can, but Jag, their leader, wants nothing to do with Brecken. 
Brecken must earn their confidence and defeat the demon horde infiltrating the Earth.

The Cazadors might not be much… but they are all the world has.
