Melissa J. Roche

hi there!

My name is Melissa J. Roche, and I’m a novel writer from Colorado with a PhD in astronomy. I write books for teens and adults, and I’ve got several novels in various stages of the writing and publishing process. My debut novel, Skate Cute, was published with Champagne Book Group in May 2022!

This website is a placeholder only; my primary website exists at Head over there to find the rest of me author, skater, artist, musician, scientist, and occasional cosplayer. Sign up for my newsletter to stay up-to-date, and get a free short story! Tada!

Alternatively, look me up on all the socials — I’d love to connect.
