About Me and My Collection


Hi! For those of you who don’t know me already, my name is Katie Melko...founder, owner, and author of everything you see on www.katiemelko.com. I was born and raised in Connecticut, and still reside here with my husband, two dogs, and two cats. Although I work as a dental hygienist by day, which I absolutely adore, one of my biggest passions has always been to write and find ways to be creative.

I have always loved working with children and educating people, so I brought my first creative vision to life with the Paw Elementary Series. Writing this series to help entertain and educate young children has been such an exciting blessing.

But I couldn’t stop there! So I started writing romance suspense novels, and the Vineyard Collection was born.

The Vineyard Collection

Gosh, how I have loved creating these characters and their stories - I hope you do, too! The first book in the Vineyard Collection is out now, with the second coming out in the spring of 2021!

Bottle of Uncertainty

The first book in the Vineyard Collection is called Bottle of Uncertainty. It’s about newly-graduated veterinarian, Amelia Pawksy, who is ready for a fresh start and desperately wants to get out of dodge. She packs up one box of her most important belongings and of course, her trusted companion, Tune. You see, growing up in Massachusetts wasn’t easy and her troubled past and shattered heart has her eager to simply start over. Her only goal is to find a new place to call home and open her own veterinary practice on the West Coast. But will her road trip lead her to a destination she never could have imagined?

Then, Teddy enters her life unexpectedly. Will she be able to let her guard down before it’s too late? More importantly, can Teddy accept her as she is or will his desire for change force them apart? Teddy’s past has made him view life in black and white, creating uncertainty around one of the most important decisions of his life. Will they learn to love one another for who they are or will Amelia’s earth-shattering secrets ruin one of the best things that has ever happened to her? This story will take you on a journey with Amelia and Teddy as they discover forgiveness, passion and possibly a love that will last a lifetime.



New Release in Spring 2021

As part of the Vineyard Collection, the second book, A Willow Tree Solace, will be released in the Spring of 2021. The story, based in South Carolina, is a romance suspense novel sure to keep you on your toes.
