Melanie Schertz

Born and raised in central Illinois, Melanie Schertz has made the Salt Lake City area of Utah her home for the last thirty years. Melanie has a bachelor’s degree in Criminalistics, with a minor in Photography, and, for many years, she was employed as a crime scene/lab technician. Now, her time is filled with reading and writing Pride and Prejudice variations, making jewelry, and loving on her family, both human and her fur babies. In fact, when she received her first royalty check, back in September of 2012, she adopted a very handsome dog, who she named “Mr Darcy,” and an equally adorable kitten, which, naturally, became “Lizzy.” “Darcy” is a certified service dog and assists Melanie with mobility issues.

Several years back, Melanie was invited to post on, and is now an author there. She can be found on Goodreads as an author. Her blog is
