Melanie O'Hara majored in Public Relations at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. One of her fondest memories was her final semester spent in London, England studying International Communications. Although she'd always enjoyed tea in her youth, her passion for afternoon tea was ignited after her time abroad. Many years later she opened her own tea room, Miss Melanie's in her 1904 Victorian home. Tea education and running a successful tea business soon led to writing a cozy mystery series, The Traveling Tea Ladies. Currently there are five books in the series and Melanie has launched a second series, Savannah Skies. She has been teaching etiquette, Kids in the kitchen cooking classes, tea tastings and tea business classes since 2005.
