Melanie Cellier is an Australian author of young adult fantasy novels. She grew up feeding on a staple of books from a very young age and never stopped reading throughout childhood, young adulthood, and even up to her adult years. Melanie always dreamed of writing young adult or children’s fiction but she would go on to work three careers spread across three continents before she penned her debut novel “The Princess Companion” in 2016. She is now fortunate enough to write her novels from her Canberra home, where she can watch kangaroos hopping down her street. While her diet has hardly changed, she has added Chicken Crimpies and Rooibos tea to it. Even as Melanie is best known for the “Four Kingdoms” series of novels, she has more than fifteen novels in the “Four Kingdoms,” “Beyond the Four Kingdoms,” “Spoken Mage,” and “Return to the Four Kingdoms” among several single standing novels. Her popular “Four Kingdoms” fiction works are for the most part a retelling of classic fairy narratives.

Cellier has had an obsession with books since was a child though she can no longer read as much now that she is a mother and author. Nonetheless, she still squeezes in something when she is not writing her young adult fiction. Since she read a lot of fairy tales as a child, she decided to focus on writing her debut series as fairy tale retellings. However, the “Spoken Mage” is a general fantasy series that she launched with the novel “Voice of Power” in 2018. Two of her series are sequels to her debut though they are set in two separate kingdoms with each novel in the series having a different heroine and hero. Nonetheless, they are all interlinked and characters often pop up in the storylines of other characters. A strong romance is also a major component of the stories though Melanie also loves to include aspects of intrigue, adventure, and some form of kingdom-level threat that has to be vanquished. Apart from reading she also loves to watch series and documentaries on Netflix, which she usually does on a binge. She also does crotchet while watching her series since it is what makes it possible to avoid snacking, which is something that she does when she is reading. When she is feeling drained or tired, she often re-watches her favorites and may also catch up with friends to talk all day if they have time.

Malanie Cellier started writing her fairy tales reimaginings since she found it fun to find the connections to an old story in a new version. Moreover, she has often been confused with some of the actions that the characters take and she thought it would be interesting to try to explain or give a new spin on happenings. She believes that with fairy rales there is often room to come up with varied twists and turns, motivations, and characterizations. For years, Melanie put off writing her novels as she thought she had to have the entire idea for the story before she could start. But then she decided to dive in and do it anyway and soon realized that she is something of an outliner. She works best when she has part of the story such as characters and plot before she can flesh it out and make the ending. Her first novel was a remake of the story of “The Princess and the Pea” that was borne of a question she had always had. Why was the queen so preoccupied with her son getting married to a real princess? She also wondered how putting a pea beneath a mound of mattresses qualified as a test of being a real princess. Cellier found the motivation for her queen she threw in a magic pea and a godmother and everything else fell into place.

“The Princess Companion” by Melanie Cellier is a story set on a stormy night, where Alyssa finds herself alone and lost and knocks on the door of an old castle. She had spent decades in the vast darkness of the forest and she does not know what would come from her first encounter with normal humans. What she finds is a handsome prince and two boisterous young princesses. When she agrees to become the companion of the princess, she knows that it is the first day of a very different life. Alyssa does not know that the family she has agreed to work for is on the verge of being swept into unforeseen intrigue and danger. Moreover, she could be the only person that could prevent the destruction of her benefactors and their kingdom. The story reimagines the rewards and risks that may result when one royal family decides that they need to find a true princess.

Melanie Cellier’s “The Princess Fugitive” is the story of Princess Ava, a woman that was once upon a time a beautiful, strong, and sharp weapon. But then she had failed to complete a very critical task and had to run away from the wrath of her family. The only person that has stood by her side through it all is Hans her bodyguard. He believes that he is the only one that knows the real Ava though she does not for one second believe him. Moreover, she has been playing and been cast as a villain for so long that she has embraced it. But while she is in exile, she learns that there is a need for a hero back home and that she might be the only one that is capable of taking up that task. But the catch is she may have to make alliances with the people she believes led to her downfall. But she is in a struggle of life and death and the stakes at hand are the kingdom she calls home. Winning the support of her former enemies will only be the first step towards saving the kingdom. Will a woman that is on the run be able to save herself let alone her kingdom 

“The Princess Pact” is a remake of the “Little Red Riding Hood” classic. Marie the ever-obedient princess is hurting under the rigid rules she is forced to follow. But then a strange darkness takes over the kingdom threatening to unearth the lie that her life has been, even as everything changes because of the signing of a single pact. She throws off tradition and joins a charming and handsome stranger named Rafe as they go on a quest to save the kingdom. But what Rafe is unaware of is that Marie is also fighting to unearth the truth about her own identity. She is increasingly drawn to Rafe’s good humor and strength and she is torn by her double purpose. With destruction and death looming and time running out, Marie has to unravel the bargains all around her and declare her allegiance. In one of the best reimagining of the Rumpelstiltskin classic, Marie has to unravel a lot of things besides her own identity.
