After completing a degree in graphic design at East Carolina University, Melody headed to New York City, where she designed book covers for publishing houses Random House and Simon & Schuster, among others, for such names as James PattersonAmy TanBethenny FrankelR.E.M.Nicholas Sparks, David Baldacci and many other New York Times bestselling authors. After ten years of working in publishing both as a designer and art director, she left her staff job to freelance, maintaining many of her publishing ties as she pursued editorial and corporate work.

 In 2011, Melody relocated back to North Carolina where, in addition to print work, she has immersed herself in HTML, CSS and WordPress.

 Her photography has been showcased in the Graphis Photo Annual.
