Melinda Robertson

Melinda Robertson is an author, empowerment speaker and former teen mother. Her experience as a teen mother compelled her to write her first novel, Motherhood . . . What You Don’t Know! in an attempt to combat the teen pregnancy issue that plagues communities nationwide. Motherhood . . . What You Don’t Know! was featured in various newspapers, and two nationally syndicated radio shows, the “ Russ Parr Morning Show” and the “Wendy Williams Experience.”

Robertson’s second novel, Fatherhood . . . What You Ought to Know for teen boys was written to educate boys about the responsibilities they have to do to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

In her latest novel, Mistaken Identity, Robertson ventures into new territory targeting a more mature audience. This fast paced story takes you into the life of a modern day single woman who plays by her own rules and ultimately changes the dating game.
