Melissa Sasina

Biography

Born in 1982 in Cleveland, Ohio, Melissa has always been an avid lover of fantasy. In her youth, she would write short stories and add artwork to them. While in high school, she decided to change her career path from graphic art to writing, though she still enjoys drawing up a random picture or two, usually of her characters (art can be found at shiovra.deviantart.com). During her younger school years, Melissa won a Young Authors Honorable Mention for a short story she had written. She has also won a few Visual Arts awards during her school years and upon graduation from High School, was given a President’s award for Outstanding Academic Achievement.

Her current book series is The Chronicles of Midgard, which will be a five book collection once completed.

What motivated you to become an indie author?
The freedom it offers. I have complete control over my story without having to worry about traditional publishers wanting to make changes.
