Melissa James, I quit to try my hand at my first love, historical mainstream While living in Europe, I found a small piece of Napoleonic hidden history that led to my first historical novel, The Tide Watchers Returning yearly to Europe now for research purposes, I hunt for the little known details that bring a story to life I love mingling real history and people with fictional elements, adding steampunk to espionage, and make it all exciting, fast paced and fun.
