Mel Dau (Melvin’s Daughter) was born in Vicenza, Italy but raised in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. She is the baby girl and the only girl of three. She has always had a love for books beginning with the Baby Sitter’s Club, R.L. Stine, and Christopher Pike. She dabbled in writing as she grew up but never took it as seriously as she should have.
Mel Dau graduated from Wando High School, then later matriculated to Benedict College (BSW) and Webster University (MHRM). She is a mother of a teenage daughter, an HR Professional, and a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
Her love for Urban Literature did not arrive until Mid-2016. Reading over nine-hundred books from 2016 to 2017, she was obsessed with reading--an obsession that helped her cope with her father’s illness and death. In March of 2018, she decided to finally come from behind the veil and submit a short story that resulted in her first Book, Khiaere, and Phy: A Charleston Love Story being published under Queens of Lit Presents. Under Queens of Lit Presents, she successfully published fifteen titles that were all debuted in the top fifty on Amazon Top one-hundred.
In May of 2020, she was signed to her new publisher B. Love Publications where she continues her growth as an author. In July of 2020, she became a Best-Selling Author with her erotica title Pet the Kitty. In August of 2020, she established Mel Dau Publications, LLC to further grow her ever-growing empire. Her purpose as an author is to provide her readers with her E3³ formula- to Entertain, Encourage & Educate. Penning in a lane all her own, her Informational Dramas fulfills her purpose with every release. Her overall desire is to use her fiction catalog to help change at least one person’s non-fiction reality.
