Crossing Paths Blog Tour

Crossingpaths banner


The crossing paths of friendship, family, love, and loss are often complicated.

June Deckert and Caroline Smith sparked a friendship in college that carried them through graduation. Although they are complete opposites in every way, they have spent the last four years inseparable.

That is, until now.

June finds herself falling for a man who seems unattainable. As she works side by side with him on a new media campaign, their feelings for each other come alive. But when his actions start to speak louder than words, she wonders if she’s missing something.

Meanwhile, Caroline is fighting against her feelings for a recent acquaintance, and she decides to keep her new love interest a secret from June. Overwhelmed by these new emotions, her moods change swiftly, swinging up and down like a yo-yo.

While June and Caroline try to maneuver their way through new relationships, Caroline starts lying to June to protect her from a truth that threatens to break her heart and tear them apart.

In the end, Caroline’s deceit will test their friendship, and June will have to decide if her chance at love is worth putting her heart on the line.

Dreamcast Crossing Paths

Author Bio:

Melanie_Stinnett_author_photoI have enjoyed reading and writing since I was very young. Some of my fondest memories from childhood are of spending time with my mom or grandma reading a good book. Over the years, it never crossed my mind that writing my own novel would be an attainable goal. After reading several independently published novels by Jamie McGuire, Colleen Hoover and others, I decided I needed to give that dream a chance. So, I began writing. My debut novel, Crossing Paths released on August 28, 2013.

When I'm not reading and writing, I enjoy spending time with my three favorite guys: my husband and my two little boys.

In addition to being an author, I work as a Speech Language Pathologist to provide therapy to adults who are dealing with speech, language, cognition or voice deficits. My day job is rewarding in many different ways and I love having the opportunity to help others in a time of need.

Hello Melanie and Welcome to Booky Ramblings.

What was your inspiration to write Crossing Paths?
I wanted to write a story that brought out emotion in the reader. Some of my favorite books left me smiling from ear to ear, crying or yelling. I didn't have one true inspiration, but the characters just simply came to me over time.

Writing a book is a journey.  Share with us some of your memorable moments while writing your novel.

I have made so many close friends along this journey. One friend in particular, another author, lives several states away. We are always talking back and forth about our current works in progress. I will never forget the moment when we were talking and the story line for Crossing Paths came into full view for me. It was like my mind opened up and I could see the path these characters would take.

Tell us about Crossing Paths.

The story follows four different people through a unique time in their lives. Each character is searching for something. As their paths cross and the connections in their lives come into full view it takes some courage and acceptance to move forward. It's about how decisions aren't always black and white.

What books have most influenced your life?

Don’t laugh, but I would have to say The Babysitter’s Club series. I read these books when I was young and they inspired me in so many ways. Those girls were so resourceful and loyal. Plus, they had to have made some good money with all that babysitting.

What can we expect to see from you in the future?

I’m currently working on another stand alone contemporary romance novel titled, Leaving Love Behind. I can’t give you too many hints about the plot right now, but it will be released in 2014.
