Melanie Forde is a veteran ghost-writer, addressing diverse foreign policy topics. Under her own name, she has published numerous features about the natural world, as well as her Appalachian trilogy (culminating in Reinventing Hillwilla) and her Irish family saga, Decanted Truths. She lives in Hillsboro, West Virginia
Reinventing Hillwilla: A Novel: Life on a llama farm, set in remote “Seneca County,” West Virginia, transitions from contented to chaotic in this final novel in the Hillwilla trilogy -- all under the watchful eye of canine guardian Ralph. Five years after we first met northern urban transplant Beatrice Desmond, she is finally adapting to her mountain hollow among the wary “born-heres” and is more open to the blessings in her life. She has developed a rewarding mother-daughter relationship with troubled local teenager Clara Buckhalter and is inching toward marriage with dashing, but complicated entrepreneur Tanner Fordyce. Meanwhile, Clara sets off on a productive new path, one that would have been unthinkable had Beatrice never come into her life. All of that progress is suddenly jeopardized by Clara’s scheming mother Charyce. Ultimately, the upheaval touched off by Charyce’s schemes serves as the catalyst for new beginnings for the Seneca County misfits (even Ralph).

Thank You What Matters W2, Beth Medved Waller for being a FRWRC Gold Business Partner & for sponsoring this event: Beth supplies this great meeting space.
In late March 2016, we opened a new space on Main Street in the Middle of Main building. It is called Team Waller’s Open House: Meet in the Middle” and will serve as a resource to our community. We will offer a wealth of real estate and community information, as well as cutting edge technology to learn more about listings, the buying process, and our local community attractions and resources. This space is for the entire community. We will open our doors to community groups to educate the public about the causes that are close to their hearts and also offer our space as a meeting venue to anyone in need of a local location. Helping our community grow and serve as a resource to our neighbors is "What Matters” to us.
