Melissa Service

About an hour north of Los Angeles, I live with my husband, Craig, two of our three kids, and our sweet, slightly neurotic, standard poodle, Eisley. My oldest daughter flies the friendly skies, so if you see a super cute flight attendant named, Elyssa, be sure to say, hello!

When I’m not chasing Eisley, or chauffeuring my teens around town, I’m writing.

What is Peter not telling her?
