My story

Connecticut born and raised, Katie Melko has always been a creator. Despite a Masters in Dental Hygiene and working in the field for over 10 years, Katie’s passion is writing. Her love of public health and building community has inspired her to find ways to contribute to the world on a greater level.

​Between her husband and two fur-babies Noel and Mason, the family is a big contributor to Katie’s life. Melko has enjoyed working to educate children in and out of her office. Therefore, it is no surprise that Katie’s aforementioned passions and skills led her to write a series of children’s books addressing new life events and coping methods.

Named in memory of her four-legged best friend, Roxy, “Roxy’s Adventure to the School Dentist” was the first wave of Melko’s children’s series “Paw Elementary”. Throughout the series, Melko speaks to new experiences for children from swimming lessons to dental visits, in hopes to offer comfort and experience!

After success with Paw Elementary, Melko has re-branded and dipped her toes into the pool of romance novel writing. Check out The Vineyard Collection “Bottle of Uncertainty” and “Willow Tree Solace – you can also find her at RomantiCon 2021.
