Introducing Melle Amade, Co-Author of I Am Human

Inspired by Star Trek, Star Wars, and Blade Runner, Melle Amade went to Chapman University to obtain her MFA in Film Writing and Directing, which is exactly how she met her co-author for I Am Human, Michael Trozzo. A fellow science fiction and film geek, Mike and Melle went every year to the scifi and fantasy blockbuster release of the December holiday season. Together they watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, Avatar and most recently Star Wars: Rebel One, where they decided to write I Am Human.

With a career as a technology Marketing Director, Melle squeezed in world building and outlining conference calls, usually on the one hour commute home. Then carefully and systematically they pulled together a time travel story that spans the world between A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe and Terminator. As a warm up, they penned a short story, The Past Code, the serves as a prequel to I Am Human.

Writing Science Fiction with my BFF!

Michael Trozzo is an amazing writer/director who I met in film school when I was doing my MFA. He’s got mad chops and a wonderful tone. Seriously… you’re going to love this book.

Here’s how it happened: last December we’re fulfilling our annual tradition of watching the holiday scifi blockbuster, which falls on his birthday. In this case… Rebel One. I leaned over and said, “We gotta write a Space Opera!”

And Michael said, “Yeah!”

Those words might read a little ‘eh’ on your computer, but imagine them shouted in a darkened theatre while two Star Destroyers of the Imperial Fleet crash into each other.

Well, this is how “I Am Human” was born.

Turns out it’s not quite space opera. It’s more like “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy” meets “Terminator.” [Read more…]

Love didn’t break her heart… a curse shattered it.


For as long as she can remember Constance has had an aching heart. A gnawing pain that something precious was missing from her life; something irreplaceable and completely lost to her. Until she met Marcello, the quick-witted Italian with gypsy roots and a scientist’s mind, who binds her heart with a single look from his pale green eyes.
But after years of hits and misses she’s given up on him and all romance. An unexpected trip to his village in the Italian countryside, throws her back in his path. What’s left of her heart quickly unravels in the dark woven spells of the ancient Domani who ensnare Marcello in his beastly form and throw Constance into the medieval ages. Trapped a world away she relives their destructive past relationship and uncovers the curse that travels with them through time; a curse she must break if she is ever to find him and her own heart again.
