In 2017, Melanie published her first non-fiction book for young adults, “Fully Functioning Human (Almost)” which sold thousands of copies, received many positive reviews and topped the Irish book charts. It went on to be featured on official Irish leaving certificate exam papers.
Her debut novel “If Only” was released in 2019 and has been a huge hit with young women around the world. Melanie is now working hard on her second fiction book (for Hachette Ireland), which is inspired by a real life story of a doctor who ran a unique program to help his patients with their mental health.
Her ‘Me Time’ self-care journal line sold out multiple times. She’s decided to focus on turning the concept into a free-to-use or very-affordable app down the line.
Melanie lives with her pilot partner, Thomas, her modern family and her two glorious rescue kitties, Bilbo and Molly Weasley. Her BSc (hons) degree in education & training from DCU catches dust above the fireplace as she writes books and uploads random videos to the internet for a living.
She frequently works alongside various lifestyle brands that she loves who support her creative career in video creation and writing. Some of the incredible partners Melanie has secured over the past few years include:
- La Roche Posay
- Ann Summers
- Barclays Bank
- Holland & Barrett
