Hi, I’m multi-award winning YA author Melanie Hooyenga. My time travel series, The Flicker Effect, tells the story of Biz, a 17-year old who uses sunlight to travel back to yesterday, and my sports romance series, The Rules Series, follows three teens as they navigate love and sports.

I’ve lived in Washington DC, Chicago, and Mexico, but have finally settled down in my home state of Michigan with my husband Jeremy. When not at my day job as a Communications Director at a local nonprofit, you can find me attempting to wrangle my Miniature Schnauzer Owen and playing every sport imaginable with Jeremy.

(My legal last name is Swiftney, but I’m keeping the Hoo for my fans.)

I LOVE hearing from readers, so please find me, friend me, follow me, whatever!

I’m happy to meet with book clubs or classes to discuss my books or writing in general. Email me at melaniehooyenga(at)gmail(dot)com or jump over to the Contact page.

As a bonus, here’s me with my dog Owen.
