Storytelling runs in Malissa's family, so few people were surprised when she made the transition from voracious reader to avid writer. She started out writing terrible poetry and bad song lyrics in middle school, but found her stride in writing novels and short stories. She majored in Creative Writing and French at Knox College and recently completed her MFA in Popular Fiction at Stonecoast. Though Fantasy is her literary darling, she's written a fair share of science fiction, mainstream fiction, poetry, and even French translation. Her work has appeared in literary magazines, as e-books, and in STEAMPUNK III: STEAMPUNK REVOLUTION, edited by Ann VanderMeer. Malissa lives in the Pacific Northwest, where she mountain-gazes while planning her next trip to visit castles for writing research. Her online home is at www.malissa.com.

I had just signed up for this site when I came across the title "Mind Melding" and, on reading its description, I resolved to make it my very first purchase. Glad I did so! It is a short yet quite ingenious tale which I would insist on taking to the big screen. It has all the elements for a marvellous futuristic thriller. M.M. Kent, pal, if you allow me to say it, I felt your book ended rather abruptly, though - your theme must be revisited and explored further. How about writing a sequel, telling stories of other inmates and the crooked system within the facility? At any rate, I am really impressed and will spread the word among the people who may appreciate this as I do.
