Official Website of Melissa Riggio, Author

Writer. Author. Thinker. Storyteller.

Welcome to my website. As a professional Author, I aim to create a better understanding of the world and our place in it — a mission which has cast me in many different roles: author, artist, and creative innovator. Read some of my work below, ranging from published articles and books to more informal blog posts.


Above all I am a wife and mother to two amazingly brilliant children. I graduated Cum Laude in the Honors program and earned my BA in English, concentration creative writing, in December 2015. I have a short story published in the Manchac Review titled "Mockingbird." My first romance novel, "Echo," co-authored with award winning, best selling author, Mr. Jim West is available at



It is currently available at My close friends, family, and, of course, my amazing co-author know how much work has been put into getting this book ready for release and publication. I cannot wait for all to read and love it as much as I do!

Romance writer, including paranormal, historical, contemporary, and more! I'm in Love with Love!

My amazing life

Even as a young child I would conjure up stories with my imagination, sharing them with anyone who was around to listen. I’ve developed my storytelling and writing quite a bit since then, but the essence of creativity and entertainment I began with as a kid has remained a major influence on my work. I’ve been writing professionally since 2015 and have no intention of slowing down anytime soon. Get in touch with me if you’ve got any comments, questions, suggestions, or just want to say hello. I’d be more than happy to hear from you.
