Author Melanie Pronia

Florida resident and award winning author Melanie S. Pronia was recently awarded the Grand Prize in the 2018 Top Female Author awards. She is the author of 'Descent,' a mystery suspense thriller novel. She was chosen from an international field of contestants by a panel of judges. She received a prize package valued at over $1200.

"I couldn’t believe that I had won the contest," Pronia stated. "I had just woken up and was sipping my coffee when I looked at the announced winners and there was my name, listed as the grand prize winner. I actually handed my laptop to my husband and asked if it was real. It was a wonderful moment that I will never forget."

In the storyline of 'Descent,' Dana, a married mother of two, has a family she loves. She loves them so much that she has to leave them so they won’t contract her disease, which is common but deadly. Embarrassed and ashamed, Dana acknowledges that she has gone insane.

She has to die. In order for her to die, she has to leave her family and the safety of her home. She doesn’t want her husband discovering her deceased body. With careful planning, she has decided that she will end her life in beautiful Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota Florida. The walk from Jacksonville to the southwest end of the state will be long, treacherous and full of consequences, both good and bad, that Dana never considered.

Pronia is a prolific writer. Other published works include:

Amateur Ghost Hunting
Five Sisters
Journey of Souls
Lillian Lake
Strange Girls

Upcoming books include:

At Death's Door
Daughter of Daughters
Descent II
Heathen Child
Here Lies
