Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Melissa, and I’m a mother of two beautiful children. I write for them. To put smiles on their faces. To help them think and care about the world around them. I hope the children in your life enjoy my stories as well, and that my books may add a little sweetness to your own story times.
I am a mom. My son is bright, intuitive, curious, and a natural engineer just like his dad. My daughter is a swirling, musical, smiling creative free-spirit. Like me on my good days. On my off days, I refuel with chocolate.
I am a former TV news reporter and anchor. Storytelling is now and always has been a big part of who I am.
And I am a writer. My work has won awards for fiction short stories, been published in a national magazine, appeared on kitchen tables during my brief stint as a print reporter, and rode into homes on the airwaves of network affiliates in the Northwest when I reported and anchored the day’s news.
I have also served on the boards for my local chapter of Mystery Writers of America and the Pacific Northwest Writers Association.
I love to write! Every book you buy and review helps me start my Stories and Smiles project – a way to bring comfort to children in need of overnight stays at hospitals and care centers around the country. To read more, please visit the Stories and Smiles page.
