Author Biography

In kindergarten my life’s goal was to become a teacher who wore only pink and ate French fries all day long. Now that I’ve matured, my goal in life is to become a Miss Marple-Sherlockian-Jedi Knight—I'm totally serious, it's a real thing.
I love stories, and I've had the privilege of working in Hollywood for over a decade in many different capacities, working with celebrities, directors (I'm married to one, plus he's my illustrator), and a few executives (the head-honcho types that I can't talk about because I signed confidentiality waivers). I’m not sure any of these people would have hired me if they knew I had a closet full of mint condition Star Wars toys…
However, the life of a freelancer is not for the faint of heart. I’ve kept myself busy with my extracurricular activities, from skydiving to scuba diving, a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, a degree in Fine Art, an M.A. in Psychology (with a focus in Neuroscience), and a few other things that I like to keep top secret. …Some people think I'm a spy, but I'll never tell!

The world Anni lives in has always seemed so normal and straightforward. Being the orphan girl at an all-girl’s school hasn’t always been easy but she’s always had Lexi and Mabel to help her get through it. All of a sudden, however, things are starting to fall into chaos. Mabel is missing, as well as her brother-in-law, Teddy. And now it seems Lexi has gone missing and Anni’s new guardian is trying to shepherd her out of the country. Something strange is going on and only Lexi seems to know what it is. Anni Moon & The Elemental Artifact by Melanie Abed is the story of two young girls who have found themselves in the middle of an adventure.

I was interested in the way that Anni and Lexi seemed to interact together so well. They were very relatable characters and it was great to read about many magical characters. I love magic and enjoyed the different creatures and other magical aspects that were included throughout this book. I was also drawn in by the mystery surrounding the characters like Finnegan, Lexi, Anni, Mabel, Teddy and more. There’s a lot going on in their world that they never would have imagined and things are going to continue changing as they attempt to discover the truth between the disappearances of Mabel and Teddy. Anni Moon & The Elemental Artifact by Melanie Abed is an excellent story for young children interested in a world of magic and mystery and it will make a difference in their lives.
