Greetings! My name is Melissa Ormond and I am an embedded librarian who loves reading, cats, libraries, museums, Tudor History, horror films, romance fiction, antiquing, and Star Wars.
I have a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies, with a focus in literature and gender studies, and a Master of Library and Information Science, with a focus in digital library reference services and social media.
I am a native Chicagoan and live with my two cats, a malti-poo, and an extensive horror movie collection. Besides my love of all things horror related, I also have a soft spot for popular romance fiction. That is correct; I love both horror and romance fiction. I am an enigma. After completing a graduate class on popular romance fiction, I fell in love with the genre and wrote my thesis on Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander.
Some of my favorite authors include Jane Austen, George R. R. Martin, Lincoln Child, Douglas Preston, Jonathon Maberry, Diana Gabaldon, and Kathy Reichs.
I bid you welcome.
