Melissa Ann Gaumes lives in Gouverneur, NY, a small town similar to the one in the story. Most of the characters and the vulgar jokes have come from people she knows; most of which are female friends or family members. The rest has come from herself and her husband; along with the characters Steven and Delilah. Melissa spends most of her time taking care of her husband and children. The rest is spent writing her hitman series. She is currently writing the second novel in the series: I Had to Become My Husband's Copycat. She is also the author of the Dhampir Three Saga.
