Melissa was born in Springfield, Illinois, but spent her formative years in the tiny, magical town of New Berlin—population 800. With few kids her own age and plenty of grass to mow, Melissa spent her summers riding a lawn mower, playing graveyard tag with her younger siblings, and allowing her fertile mind to wander and create far-off worlds.
The summer she turned nine, she decided she would become an author. She pulled her grandpa’s old, dusty typewriter from the basement and haphazardly banged out her first short story—Aliens.
Melissa and her husband, Craig, live in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, along with their children and their sweet, yet slightly neurotic, standard poodle, Eisley. When Melissa isn't chasing her kids or the dog around the neighborhood, she’s writing. She's currently working on her second novel, Stephanie.
