The Art of Crash Landing










This evening we’re pleased to welcome debut novelist Melissa DeCarlo with a new novel perfect for book clubs, The Art of Crash Landing. Pregnant and broke, Mattie Wallace jumps at the chance to leave the Florida panhandle for her mother’s hometown in Oklahoma when she learns a grandmother she never met has left her an inheritance. There, she uncovers the unexpected truth of her mother’s happy early life, casting light on her own downward spiral and possibly saving her from a similar fate. 


Melissa DeCarlo was born and raised in Oklahoma City, and has worked as an artist, graphic designer, grant writer, and even (back when computers were the size of refrigerators) a computer programmer. The Art of Crash Landing is her first novel. Melissa now lives in East Texas with her husband and a motley crew of rescue animals.

Thank you for supporting Melissa DeCarlo and your local independent bookstore!
