Melanie Pearce


I live in Swindon with my family, pet chickens Lucy, Tilly, Bella and Polly and our pet fishes, of whom there are too many to name. I am a writer of children's stories aimed at readers age range of 7 to 11 years old. Reading and writing is the thing I spend most of my time doing but I also enjoy a lot of crafts such as crochet and cross stitch. I like to make my readers feel happy, as I like to feel happy and hope this is reflected in my stories. You may also see books from me in other genres as I like to have a change and do not only write for children.
