About the Author
Melony Teague writes contemporary romance with a dash of humor, she loves to inspire and motivate others through her written words, and she believes everyone has a story to tell.

Melony was born in South Africa and now lives in Toronto with her handsome husband, their two teenagers, and does the bidding of her two adorable cats.
What inspired the idea for a Promise to Keep? The framework on which I based this story was a high school reunion, second chances and promises. I was inspired by real events in the news, good news stories, and once the characters became fully formed and showed me their story, it was fun to go along and see where their journey would take them. Some characters surprised me, and others weren’t even planned, they just showed up. Like Donovan Radcliffe.
What did you as an author take away from writing A Promise to Keep? As an author I think this book really helped me to focus on what really matters in life, and how we choose to live each day.
Do you have a favorite character in the story? Who is it and why? As much as swoony Michael is …swoony and wonderful, and kind, Savannah just makes me laugh so much. I think she has to be my favorite for this book.
What was your favorite thing about writing A Promise to Keep? As much as I loved getting to know Savannah and Michael and their story, the research was so much fun. I was able to consult with a local firefighter on the viability of the rescue scenes and he got so excited about the project. It was wonderful to hear him give suggestions on what he thought might happen in the story. Then, I dragged my husband to downtown Toronto with me to see the award-winning documentary, Free Solo. Even though I’m scared of heights, I dealt with my own fear for the sake of research.
What is your current WIP? What can you tell us about it? Ack! To be honest, since it has only been seven months from contract signing to release date, I haven’t had time to start another WIP. Although, I do have a finished manuscript waiting to be edited. It’s not in the same genre though, so it may have to wait a while. It is slightly more younger-adult focused. It was written for my kids who are both in high school.
