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 Patterson, Amy Tan, Bethenny Frankel, R.E.M., Nicholas Sparks, 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 create her own company, maintaining many of her publishing ties as she pursued editorial and corporate work. In 2011, Melody relocated back to North Carolina where she continues do do print and digital design.
